Mission 'Bring Hilda' Home Accomplished as Corrie stars make winning bid at Manchester's Bee in the City auction.
Last night Corrie cast headed down to the Bee in the City Auction with one mission in mind - to get 'Hilda Bugden' back to the cobbles giving cast, crew and Corrie Tour visitors the chance to see her back home!
Lot 25 was the aim and after a bidding frenzy Dolly Rose Campbell, Melanie Hill and Charlie de Melo managed to bag the bee with the help of the audience who got behind their task as the room went wild telling auctioneer, Charles Hanson, to put the gavel down and "sell it to them"!
Everybody agreed the only place for Hilda to go was home and Dolly Rose was the woman to do it. Rapidly tasked by Charles to put down the gavel "now!" Dolly did the honours as the room gave the loudest cheer of the night.
Watch this space for where Hilda will take her rightful place in the home of Coronation Street and to be sure of a 'bee-t and greet' make sure you check out the newly released Corrie Tour dates for 2019.
Bee in the City has been an overwhelming success for Manchester and last night's auction raised over £1 million for the Lord Mayor's Charity 'We Love Manchester'.
