28th May1990: Hilda Ogden had left Coronation Street in December 1987 to housekeep for Doctor Lowther in Derbyshire and few had heard of her since her departure. The regulars in the Rovers were therefore surprised when she made a flying visit in May 1990. Hilda had not lost the need to impress during her time away, making sure they all knew that she had come back in a taxi and insisted on drinking port on its own and not with lemon, as that was the way her new social set consumed it. She also stunned them with the news that her employer had proposed to her, leading Alec Gilroy to ask if he’d developed senility. Later on, at Stan’s grave, Hilda talked to her dead husband and told him that she’d turned the proposal down as he was the only one for her.
Kylie Platt is the wife of David and mother of Max and Lily Platt. Kylie was raised by a drug addict mother and abusive father. She resented her half-sister Becky Granger for leaving home when Kylie was eight, and was thrown out after falling pregnant at nineteen. Max's dad, Callum Logan, ended up in prison, and Max was taken into care as Kylie was homeless. In 2010, Becky tracked Kylie down and helped her regain custody of Max, but fearing she couldn't hack it as a mother, Kylie sold Max to Becky and Steve McDonald and left. She made a surprise return to Weatherfield the following year after meeting and getting engaged to David Platt in Tenerife, where she was working as a cage dancer. After getting married, the Platts won custody of Max and in 2013 Kylie gave birth to their daughter Lily - although there was uncertainty over her parentage due to a one-night stand between Kylie and Nick Tilsley. Arriving in the Street as an opportunistic thief, Kylie frequently pushed David to get what he could from his family - including Audrey Roberts's salon where they both worked - but matured as she was accepted into the Platt clan.
