THE producers of Coronation Street have been urged to bring back the little fat man with the bow tie and the glasses.
Millions of soap fans last night watched the heartbreaking suicide of Hayley Cropper while simultaneously yearning for the days of Reg Holdsworth and his malfunctioning waterbed.
Coronation Street fan Jane Thompson said: “Jesus Christ Almighty. What the fuck was that?”
She added: “Coronation Street used to be like a Norman Wisdom film, but with affairs that took place in flats above video shops.
“Remember when Reg’s waterbed exploded and we all had to wait a week to find out who had survived?
“That’s how you do telly.”
