A Coronation Street spokeswoman has confirmed that Monday night's episode will be dedicated to actress Jean Alexander who has died aged 90.
Alexander played the legendary Hilda Ogden in the soap from 1964 until 1987.
The spokeswoman said the show's bosses were considering having characters reference the death of Hilda, who would now be 92.
Meanwhile tributes have continued to pour in from Alexander's former colleagues on the soap including Julie Goodyear, who played former Rovers Return landlady Bet Lynch.
She said Alexander was "an absolute joy to play scenes with".and "was the exact opposite of the character she played".
Jean was a very private person and meticulous in her work. She really was a perfectionist and always word-perfect.
Rest in Peace, Jean. Hilda will be remembered forever as one of the best characters in Coronation Street.
Bill Roache, who has played Ken Barlow in the soap since its first episode in 1960, described working with Alexander as "wonderful", adding that she "created one of the most iconic Coronation Street characters".
He said: "She could make you laugh, particularly with Hilda's comedy singing, but she could also deliver incredibly moving performances and make you cry."
