A statue of Jean Alexander has been called for in her home town of Stockport.
BBC News reports that ex-Corrie actor Andrew
Lancel, who played Frank Foster in Coronation Street, has called for a statue to the late actress.
Andrew said: "I'm
very proud that I spent some time with Jean over the years in Southport
- she was always charming and unassuming and lovely. There's been an incredible outpouring of love and affection. Let's celebrate a local lass who did wonderful things."
That sounds like a wonderful idea!
