Coronation Street star Irene Sutcliffe dies at 88

Irene Sutcliffe has died aged 88. The former Coronation Street star portrayed long-suffering cobbles favourite Maggie Clegg from 1968 until 1975, but sadly passed away on May 3rd.

Irene's Coronation Street character Maggie ran the corner shop from 1968 to 1974 and lived with her alcoholic husband Less Clegg (John Sharp) but divorced him in 1969 over his heavy drinking.

Maggie went on to marry Ron Cooke. The character's sister was fellow Weatherfield legend Betty Williams (Betty Driver), who first arrived on the cobbles in 1969 to help Maggie run the shop.
