Bring back the Battleaxe to Coronation Street


(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog June 2015, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Coronation Street has always had a battleaxe. From Ena Sharples to Blanche Hunt, the soap battleaxe is a soap staple and Corrie has had some the best.   

But where is the battleaxe now?  Since the sad passing of Maggie Jones and the on-screen death and funeral of Blanche, Corrie has been sadly lacking one of the very things that makes it so great.

We've got Yasmeen Nazir but she's not in the same league as the likes of Ena and Blanche.  Roy's mum Sylvia was a fine contender for the role but sadly Stephanie Cole left her role as Sylvia and there's no sign that I know of that she's likely to return.

Come on Corrie, bring back the battleaxe with her sharp tongue to put some bite back into the show.
