A Coronation Street league of nations...

21st October 1992: Percy Sugden spoke about his experiences in the Second World War so much that one would have expected him to enjoy meeting up with someone from the period of his life again - but perhaps not from the "other side". Percy wasn't pleased when German Klaus Muller arrived on his doorstep, wanting to thank him for his cooking and kindness when he was a POW. He started to warm to the man as they talked and was more than a bit susceptible to flattery when Klaus told him how much his fellow detainees adored his cooking. Klaus had brought along a bottle of Schnapps and the two men drank it into the small hours, getting so drunk that they missed a reunion parade the next day.

Ivy Brennan

Ivy Tilsley in 1981

Ivy Brennan was the God-fearing mother of Brian Tilsley and mother-in-law of Gail. A long-term employee at Baldwin's Casuals, Ivy was a resident of 5 Coronation Street from 1979 to 1994. Prior to living in the Street, Ivy had been employed at the Mark Brittain Warehouse and between 1976 and 1989 she was a machinist at Baldwin's denim factory, also serving as shop steward and supervisor at various times. She was never afraid to speak her mind and frequently stood up to Mike on behalf of her colleagues, including Ida Clough and best friend Vera Duckworth. 1979 saw Ivy, her husband Bert and 20-year-old son Brian move into No.5 and Brian fly the nest to marry Gail Potter. As a widow, Ivy's attentions were focused on Brian's family, including her grandchildren Nicky and Sarah Louise who Ivy doted on. A staunch Catholic, Ivy disapproved of Brian and Gail's decision to separate and ultimately divorce. After Brian was killed in a stabbing in 1989, Ivy continued to meddle under the guise of protecting his memory, notably attempting to thwart Gail's second husband Martin Platt's plans to adopt Brian's children.

Previous featured characters: Oliver Battersby, Summer Spellman, Amy Barlow; Bethany Platt; Mavis Wilton; Billy Walker.

"I always fall in love too easy. It's since I was a kid and saw Aqua Marina on Stingray. That puppet nearly broke my heart. Looking back it never would have worked. I was a schoolboy, she was made of wood. I could have got some splinters in some very awkward places. And to be honest, I prefer a relationship with no strings"
Graeme Proctor
