Her iconic costume, which was in her mother's possession, fetched an astonishing £4,200.

Sonia Hearld, Jean Alexander's niece, said: "Considering my grandma grew up in Liverpool, she'd probably never seen that much money in her life. And to think her old pinny went for that she'd be very proud."

Trevor Beattie, who won the bidding, said: "It's one of the great British television characters of all time, and represented by these items."
