Filming of the ITV soap is halted


A public memorial was held for Coronation Street star Maggie Jones yesterday.

Over 100 cast and crew and 500 fans attended Salford Cathedral for the service. 

Bill Roache, who stars as Ken Barlow, led tributes to Maggie, who played Blanche Hunt

‘She simply stole every scene she was in,’ he said. 

Maggie died in hospital in December aged 75. 

She will be given an on-screen funeral later this year.

Filming on Corrie was suspended yesterday.
