Peter Jackson was a schoolboy who along with his friends, Roy Bradley and Frank Townsend, came carol singing at the Vestry one evening in December 1965 and appalled Ena Sharples when they liberally massacred Hark! The Herald Angels Sing outside her door. She invited them inside where she was sitting with Minnie Caldwell and recognised Peter as one of the Jackson family, telling Minnie that he'd come on since he'd been born as he'd been "all skin and bone". A moment later she snapped at him when he spoke up for the shy Roy Bradley, telling him to let his friend speak for himself.

She took the three lads through Once in Royal David's City but stopped them when they started to race through the tune, telling them it wasn't a Boogie-woogie and making them join her at her harmonium to sing the carol properly.

Meanwhile, Stan Ogden was commiserating in the Rovers that the lads had "murdered" Good King Wenceslas and yet Hilda had still given them "half a dollar" i.e. Half a crown or twelve and a half pence in post-decimal money.

The character wasn't credited, either on screen or in "TV Times" and the identity of the child actor playing him is unknown.
