THE ACTRESS MAGGIE Jones has died at the age of 75.
The actress is best known for her role as Blanche Hunt in Coronation Street - quite possibly the funniest character on TV today.
"She gleefully defied the maxim that if you hadn't anything nice to say about somebody, you shouldn't bother saying it. Instead, she broadcast her malevolence from the rooftops and to her victims' astonished, deeply offended faces," says The Times. She last appeared on screen on 20th November.
