Coronation Street mothers from hell

It's Mother's Day in the UK and our blogger Llifon has done a wonderful blog post paying homage to some of the mums in Coronation Street.

But what about those who are less than loving?  Here's my favourite 'mums from hell', have I missed any of your favourite nasties out?

Cilla Battersby-Brown
Abandoned her kids many times over the years. The woman's so evil she even had the mark of the devil on her head on her wedding day.

Tracy Barlow
Sold her baby to the Croppers after pretending she was pregnant with Roy's child when it was Steve's all along.

Kylie Platt
Ran away with a druggie leaving her two kids.

Jackie Dobbs.
Poor Tyrone. 'nuff said.

Linda Armstrong
Abandons her husband and two children, one of whom is disabled, and runs off without a backwards glance. Turns up decades later, the Sue Ellen of Corrie, to cause torment on the cobbles.

There was Mandy who never told Jenna Lloyd was her real father. The poor girl found out so late in life she had an identity crisis, and despite years of study and certification, she lost her career, came out of a closet she didn't know she was in, had a relationship with half her age Sophie (even tho' she was better friends with Sally), and finally ran away to someplace warm only to land in jail.

Although she isn't exactly a 'mother from hell'I wouldn't say that Gail would be 'Mother of the Year'either with her almost incestual jealousy of the women in Nick's life, throwing David out of his own house after he found out his wife slept with his brother knowing all along but kept quiet to protect 'Golden Boy'Nick and of course taking 'Princess'Sarah's side against David as well.

@Anon 21:03: well said! Sometimes the women most consumed with their images as mothers make the worst ones. Gail, Ivy, Sally. On the good mother side, no one's mentioned Natalie H who was a great mother to her son, although it ended in tears.

My #1 pick would have to be 'dear' Cilla..yikes...certainly rubbish at being a mom. However...VERY entertaining for us to watch though! Her and Les were always shouting the odds..weren't they!!

Well Liz hasnt been a particularly good mother to Steve of late, just shouting at him to pull himself together while belitting him at every opportunity along with the equally harridanlike

Michelle Connor - never mentions either of her sons, the one who was swapped and was her biological son or Ryaaaaan who has now disappeared without trace.

Katy Armstrong - happy to disappear off to Portugal and not consider Joseph's family and needs or even think to discuss it with them. Happy to dump him on anyone while she drinks in the Rovers or carries on with a drug dealer.

Maria - likewise - dumps Liam on anyone and everyone so she can booze in the Rovers, never mentions his dad, and gives him no communication with his Auntie Michelle - more interested in her next love interest and herself than her young son.

I couldn't believe Katy's mother telling her how great Portugal is to live and work and cheap to buy things and one bonus she mentioned the clubs are open every night thill 3am !! Really not a good example of mother knowing better. Poor Chesney always seems to get the worst part of any deal.

I don't recall her name but Gerry Morton's wife was a nasty mother. She had a penchant for getting drunk and copping off with any male who looked at her while Gerry minded the children. She hung around with Lloyd like a bad smell after her family left. What was her name?

Frosty,for what it's worth,'Auntie'Michelle is just as guilty as not keeping in touch with her late brother's son despite the fact Maria and Liam live across the Street.Michelle doesn't even acknowledge Liam at Christmas!I bet if Maria ever decided to join her parents in Cyprus,Michelle wouldn't care less about missing Liam.

Jerry Morton's wife was named Theresa - and yeah, she was really awful. She tried to pass off her young son as Lloyd's to get money/things from him. The youngest Morton daughter was skipping school trying to take care of him because Theresa was just leaving him alone, until Jerry found out and took him in to live with them, despite having no biological relation to him.

Yeah, she should definitely be on this list.
