Ta-ra Chuck

Coronation Street legend Jean Alexander's worldly goods are going under the hammer in her home town of Southport.

The woman known to millions as Hilda Ogden, died in hospital just three days after her 90th birthday last October.

Now, a celebrity auction is being held on Wednesday May 17, when her personal possessions, including Hilda's famous curlers, headscarf and pinny, will be sold to the highest bidder. But there are no flying ducks. They were Hilda's not Jean's.

Jean, who was also famous for her role as Auntie Wainwright in BBC TV's Last of the Summer Wine, was loved by millions around the world and massive interest in the auction is expected.

Miss Alexander's niece, Sonia Hearld, who along with her sister, Val, are the main beneficiaries of her estate, said: "We have chosen our personal favourites which hold special memories of Jean and we thought we would give her fans an opportunity of a treasured memento of 'Hilda'.

"There are all her TV awards, including a 2005 award when, in a UK TV Times poll, she was voted the nation's greatest all-time soap character and a 1987 BAFTA TV Award nomination for Best Actress," said Sonia. "But my favourite item in the auction will be a plastic bag I found in a drawer with a label written in Jean's handwriting saying "Hilda's curlers, headscarf and pinny". And inside, there they are in excellent condition. She had kept them because they were her mother's."

Also up for auction will be Jean's large Teddy bear, Ambrose, bought for her 4th birthday; her mink coat and stole; poetry signed by former poet laureate John Betjeman, a huge fan of Jean; a presentation brick from the original Rover's Return; jewellery, figurines, books, ornaments, photographs throughout her career and the rest of her household possessions.
Sonia Hearld added: "Jean left bequests to a number of her favourite charities and a percentage of the proceeds of the sale will be sent to them."

Born in 1926, Jean Alexander, whose real name was Jean Margaret Hodgkinson grew up in Liverpool, and played Hilda Ogden, Britain's best loved cleaner, for 23 years from 1964 until 1987. She retired from acting in 2012.

Despite her yearning to be an actress she worked for five years as a library assistant in her home city before she began her acting career in 1949 at the Adelphi Guild Theatre in Macclesfield and later worked in rep in Oldham, Stockport and York. She worked as an actress, wardrobe mistress and stage manager.

Outhwaite and Litherland Services

We Bid You Welcome

What is your perception of an auction house? Only for those interested in buying antiques? Only for the dealers? Only for the wealthy who have homes full of valuables who want them selling on their behalf? Perhaps - once upon a time. Maybe when Outhwaite and Litherland first started 100 years ago - but not now. Not anymore - like every other type of business we have moved with the times. From categorising sales to going on line - auctioneering now appeals to a much wider market... and more and more people are discovering that it's an exciting, fascinating and vibrant world of buying and selling. Buying at an auction appeals to all the same people that walk around antique fairs and car boot sales each weekend hoping to spot a bargain -selling through an auction appeals to everybody who has something lying around their home that can be turned into cash! And no - we are not just looking for the unusual items that will 'fetch a fortune' we have numerous sale categories which means we are in an enviable position of being able to take almost anything from anyone, anywhere. Which is great news for you. Whether you are looking to clear a whole house, or single items from household goods to granny's antique chest of drawers, we are happy to take it off your hands and sell it on your behalf. Welcome to today's world of auctioneering from a company who's been around long enough to know the business of antiques is as much about tomorrow as it is knowing about yesterday.

Alternatives To Selling?

We also offer a full restoration service in our offices including furniture,clocks, jewellery, paintings, water colour drawings etc. the work is carried out by experts with many years in the restoration, conservation and repair of antiques as well as modern items.

Things To Come

Naturally, like most other businesses we are finding that people's time is precious and we need to make it easier and quicker for people to find information or to have valuations. Below is a list of things that we are going to add to this site in the future to show that we mean business.

We already execute bids on your behalf if you can't attend a sale, but soon you will be able to make a bid online after browsing through the sales catalogue on our website. Our site will also allow you to have an online evaluation by completing form or scanning and emailing a photograph to us.

We will also be creating a knowledge base of freqeuntly asked questions and answers that will be catalogued into a useful reference manual for visitors to the site. There is going to be a page showing some examples of the most unusual restorations that we have undertaken.

As well as links to other antique related sites, www.lots.uk.com will be your one stop shop.
