This hour-long special celebrates the work of actress Jean Alexander who died recently and who played one of the most popular Coronation Street characters of all time, Hilda Ogden, for over 20 years.
The tribute features contributions from her family, friends and Coronation Street stars like William Roache, Michael Le Vell and Sally Dynevor, who also enjoy watching classic Hilda moments in a special recreation of Stan and Hilda’s famous living room - flying ducks, ‘muriel’ and all. 
Younger members of the Coronation Street cast also celebrate Hilda’s legacy plus we hear from famous fans like Paul O’Grady – Jean made a rare public appearance on his chat show in 2005.
