Jean Alexander leaves hospital, thanks fans for concern

Yesterday we reported that Coronation Street's Hilda Ogden actress Jean Alexander had been taken into hospital. Today the Mirror reports that she is back home, and they have some quotes from Jean's brother.

Jean's brother, Kenneth Hodgkinson, 90, tells the Mirror: “She is very grateful for all the interest shown by the public in her. It is very kind of people to still be interested in her.” But Kenneth said his sister does not want any fuss.

Mr Hodgkinson said Jean was taken into hospital after feeling ill last week. “She still has a bit of difficulty with walking. She has managed to walk with a frame. She seems to be doing well and is being well cared for. But she is very tired and does not want to do any interviews yet. She will need a little bit of time to be looked after where she is being cared for.”


“She seems reasonably chirpy and not in danger. From what I hear she is pottering about and so on. It seems to have passed over.”

So pleased to hear this; yes, "a lady with class" is right Anonymous.
All the very best, take care Ms Alexander, and thank you for all the many, many hours of being "Hilda" and for the viewer enjoyment this gave to us.
