1960 - a less than jolly holiday for Ena Sharples. She collapses after being caught boozing in the Rovers by Leonard Swindley.
More misery for Ena in 1961 when she chokes on sixpences hidden in Minnie Caldwell's Christmas pudding.
|"And a pint of whisky for Miss Nugent . . ."|
Residents gather in the Mission Hall for a special Christmas 1963 staging of "This is Your Life" with Annie Walker as the guest. There are rare appearances from Joan and Billy Walker.
1964 - and it's pantomime time! Oh no it isn't! Yes it is actually, and Len Fairclough gets a custard pie in the face. The whole cast sing the Beatles hit "She loves you" at the close of proceedings. What, even Ena?
The highlight of Christmas 1965 is David Barlow's torn knee ligament. I kid you not.
Ooh heck! With a storyline worthy of Walford, Ena Sharples looks on as her daughter dies. Merry Christmas 1966.
|"Now who knows the chorus to 'Smack my Bitch Up'?"|
Free from her early tranquiliser hell, Emily throws herself at the vicar. Everyone else gets drunk in the Rovers and the usual singsong ensues, 1968 style.
|"By crikey Emily Nugent you're a dark horse!"|
A decade then filled with Ena either being ill or leading drunken carousing at the piano. All hail Emily Nugent too, drug-taking, whisky-swilling, vicar-baiting floozy that she was.
Coming soon - The Seventies!
