Hilda Ogden gets a golden bucket at Madame Tussauds

In honour of the 50th anniversary since Hilda Ogden first appeared on Coronation Street, Madame Tussauds Blackpool has given their waxwork of Hilda a golden bucket.

The wax figure is one of many Corrie characters in the fully-licensed Rovers Return set, which already includes fellow legends Ken and Deirdre Barlow, Jack and Vera Duckworth and Bet Lynch.

A spokeswoman for Corrie said: “It’s amazing to think that it is 50 years since Hilda Ogden first walked down the cobbles of Coronation Street. Despite the fact that it is almost 30 years since Hilda said farewell to Weatherfield, she is still seen as one of the most iconic characters in the soap’s history.

“We send warm wishes to Jean Alexander and hope she continues to recover well following her recent health scare.”

All the best to Jean Alexander.
You most certainly are a Corrie icon.
When I think of the golden years, I think of Hilda first.
Thank you for all your wonderful performances over the decades.

Best not use the words 'Hilda Ogden' and 'bucket' together at the moment - The Mail may end up writing another story saying that Jean Alexander's kicked the bucket!

I may not necessarily want or need to tour the Corrie set but I sure wouldn't mind making that trip from Canada to Blackpool to take in those Corrie wax figures -- I hope Hilda's is just as stunning and lifelike as the Duckworth's!!!

All the best to the wonderful actress Jean Alexander who played Hilda Ogden with such heart!
