TGIF: Blanche's best

Remember! Coronation Street airs at 3pm eastern, on Friday December 4.
No spoilers were used in the preparation of this post

Dear Corrie fans, please bear with me as regularly scheduled BPH programming is suspended to honour the incomparable Blanche Hunt/Maggie Jones. I know I said I would share my theory about the nefarious Tony Gordon but, with your indulgence, I will devote this week's TGIF (Tony Gordon, it's Friday) to some of the memorable lines from Blanche.

"I’ve been to more funerals this year than you’ve had hot dinners"

re: Deirdre's cooking prowess
"This turkey’s so dry, it could choke a camel!"

re: Liz McDonald:
“Skirt no bigger than a belt, too much eyeliner and roots as dark as her soul.”

re: Ken's novel, retrieved from the attic:
"So, not even the moths have shown interest in it."

“Good looks are a curse, Deirdre. You and Kenneth should count yourselves lucky”

Re: Peter Barlow
“He’s as much use as a wet tea towel”

Re: an aquaintance's sexual orientation:
“She’s got a cat called Navratilova”


Shots from the hip... As you may imagine, there are several websites dedicated to Blanche's best lines like 'What would Blanche say?' among others. Enjoy and I'll be back next week with my Tony Theory. Thanks for the nice comments and have a good weekend.

  1. Thanks for the comment Mary. I think a lot of fans are sharing the same feeling this week. CH
