Could Mrs Kitchen be the new Corrie battleaxe?

With apologies for the dreadful picture I took on my phone from the TV!
I'm liking Mrs Kitchen, the older lady who turned up in Coronation Street last night. 

Could she have the potential to be the new battleaxe?  Corrie producer Kate Oates has already said that a battleaxe is what the street is missing right now.

Mrs Kitchen was played by actor Pauline Jefferson, who is no stranger to Coronation Street.  She's been in the show four times before as different characters:

With thanks to Corriepedia and Corrie.net we know that she played:
  • A woman who spoke to Deirdre Langton after daughter Tracy had gone missing following the Rovers' lorry crash in March 197
  • The Landlady at 6 Chepstow Road where Ken Barlow moved into digs during May 1990
  • Dorothy Cudlip, a viewer of 3 Coronation Street in July 1991 when Emily Bishop put the house on the market
  • Weatherfield Gazette romance serial writer Hermione Fairfax in August 2002.
Her other credits include roles in City 68', Crown Court, Children's Ward, Cold Feet, Emmerdale, Where the Heart Is, Hollyoaks, DCI Banks, Secrets and Words, Give Out Girls and Happy Valley. On stage she has appeared in productions of Box and Cox, The Bells, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Billy Liar.

Hope so, loved her interaction with David. Think she might have potential

It'll be a real gossip fest when she and the Renfrew twins are all in at the same time.

I figured that was what Corrie was preparing us for as clients at the salon usually don't talk that much. lol
I did think however that they would have incorporated such a character into a family.

I'm with C in Canada - I'd love to see Sylvia back again!

She was brilliant!! Hope we'll be seeing her again. Reminded me of Sylvia and Blanche with a bit of Ena Sharples thrown in for good measure. :)

Newfy Pearl said...

The actress who played Silvia could not keep up with the pace of Corrie filming...so let's just forget about her. lol

Ena Sharples lived alone (family living far away) and that worked very well. I thought Mrs Kitchen was great!

I so hope she becomes a regular character! The Street needs a good Battleaxe.
