Mrs. Hodgkinson was the widow of one of Alec Gilroy's acts, who encountered Alec when he was pushing Jamie Ramsden's pram at the Red Rec in 1990. Alec explained to her that he and Bet were looking after Jamie for Eddie Ramsden who was held up in a French jail for football hooliganism. Mrs. Hodgkinson was able to update him on the situation, as she knew the mother of one of Eddie's mates who was also banged up, and her son had been released. Later, the Gilroys discovered that all of the hoodlums except Eddie had been let go.
