Sylvia Ramsden is the second wife of Matt Ramsden.
In 2006, Sylvia accompanied her husband to Coronation Street after learning about the death of Maxine Peacock (who had been murdered by Richard Hillman three years earlier). Matt had entered into an affair with Maxine six years ago, while he was still married to his first wife Charlie Ramsden and Maxine was married to Ashley Peacock. This affair resulted in the conception of Joshua Peacock, and following Maxine's death Ashley had began raising him as his own son alongside his new wife Claire Peacock. Both Matt and Sylvia were now adamant that they wanted to be parents to Joshua, much to Ashley and Claire's horror.
As Ashley refused to allow Matt contact, Matt and Sylvia decided to take him to court to gain custody of the child. Matt won the court case and was to be given shared custody of the child, however he later decided that Joshua would be much better off left with Ashley and Claire.
