Although ranked at 16 in Corrieblog’s poll, the street’s Hyacinth Bucket, Sally Webster, is in the 45th position here, receiving only two votes. First appearing in 1986, Sally was introduced as the latest love interest for mechanic Kevin Webster. Her family were known to be common and were looked down by Hilda Ogden, of all people! She married Kevin that year and they had two girls: Rosie in 1990 and Sophie in 1994 – both giving grief for poor Sally in their later years. After eleven years, Sally and Kevin divorced after his affair with Natalie Horrocks. Between 1997 and 2002, the year she remarried Kevin, Sally had relationships with Chris Collins, Greg Kelly, Alex Jordan, Danny Hargreaves and Martin Platt. Since her second marriage to Kevin, she has developed to be the street’s snob, following the footsteps of Annie Walker, after entering Rosie to Weatherfield’s private school Oakhill. Her friendships with Gail Platt and Rita Sullivan are the strongest in
Coronation Street’s history and her slapping love rival Natalie in the street is one of the show’s most memorable scenes.
