Miss Prowse was one of five members of a panel interviewing applicants for the post of caretaker at the newly-built Community Centre in Coronation Street in May 1971. Along with Alf Roberts, Ernest Bishop, Mr Rogers and Mrs Mellish, she interviewed Mrs Helliwell, Hetty Thorpe, Mr Draper and Ena Sharples.

Ena was the favoured candidate for Alf and Ernie, mainly because of a combinations of threats and blackmail she had made to the two men. During the interview Miss Prowse asked Ena if she didn't think she was too old for the job and received the tart reply that she wouldn’t have applied for job if she was. Miss Prowse ended up voting against Alf and Ernie and Hetty Thorpe was offered the job.
