The curlers, headscarf and pinny worn by Coronation Street battleaxe Hilda Ogden are set to go under the hammer.

The items will be sold at auction by the family of actress Jean Alexander, who died last year at the age of 90.

The sale will also include many of her personal items, including her teddy bear, acting awards and a book given to her by Sir Laurence Olivier.

A spokeswoman for auctioneers Outhwaite and Litherland said: "Jean was loved by millions of people all over the world as Aunt Hilda, so we are expecting interest from all over. It is difficult to say how much things will sell for; it's the unknown. It will be down to her star power."

The sale is being organised by her niece Sonia Hearld and her sister Valerie Thewlis, after Sonia found the pinafore in her aunt's wardrobe.
