Jerry and Ray find Lynn Johnson dead

20th January 1975: Lynn Johnson was murdered by a mystery attacker some time after being left alone in 9 Coronation Street by Len Fairclough. Lynn had turned to Len for help in his capacity as local councillor after suffering years of abuse from her husband Roy. Len subsequently became the prime suspect in Lynn's murder as he'd been heard arguing with her by Ken and Janet Barlow in No.11 and his alibi for the time of the murder couldn't be corroborated. Len was exonerated when Clifford Fenton, who had provided Roy Johnson's alibi, broke down under police questioning and admitted that he'd lied for Roy and that Roy had beaten his wife to death.

Mavis Wilton

Mavis wilton

Mavis Wilton in 1988

Mavis Wilton is Rita Tanner's close friend and former assistant at The Kabin and wife of the late Derek Wilton. Mavis initially joined the Kabin in 1973 after spending two years at the Mark Brittain Warehouse as a clerk. Following a temporary move with her parents to Grange-over-Sands, she was re-hired at the Kabin and balanced her work there with nursing her bed-ridden auntie Edie Platt. Mavis finally escaped her overbearing relative in 1977 when she moved into The Kabin flat, where she led a quiet life with her pet budgie Harriet. Mavis was to remain at the Kabin for over two decades, chiefly thanks to her strong friendship with the newsagent's manageress Rita Littlewood. Confident and glamorous, Rita took the shy spinster under her wing and a bond was formed. The 24 years they worked behind the counter together weren't without their lows; a born fusspot, Mavis often tested Rita's patience with her indecisiveness while Rita frequently took Mavis's loyalty for granted. Mavis longed to break out of her shell and in 1997 she retired to Cartmel to run a bed and breakfast.

Previous featured characters: Billy Walker; David Barlow; Maggie Cooke; Steph Barnes; Jackie Ingram; Phil Jennings.

"Did yer... want to say something, Bet?" Steve McDonald
"Yes I did, love. I think I wanted to say... Personally, I wouldn't trust you as far as I could throw you. Only a little bird tells me that you've got another little bird on the side. Now you don't have to say whether I'm well-informed but I'll warn yer, if you damage that little bird's wings, I shall pluck yer, stuff yer and roast yer. Give your mum my love." Bet Gilroy
