I'm 5ft 6in and people think of me as slender but that's because I've got a thin head.

Poor Cerberus. The greyhound had to be put down after suffering from kidney failure. Evelyn, a devoted pet owner, is heartbroken.

RIP Cerberus. XXX ๐Ÿ•ฏ๐Ÿฆฎ๐Ÿพ

I was watching Coronation Street this morning while chatting to my friend, Safia, and I mentioned that she was already acting in the 70s. Safia said, โ€œWhatโ€™s her name? Maureen LICKMAN?โ€

We both laughed our heads off!

It would certainly seem that Maureen has maintained her height very well.

I watched Maureenโ€™s first Coronation Street character, Lillian Spencer, this morning and I thought how delicately-featured she was - and very pretty.

Revered more for her ability to effect any accent, Maureenโ€™s beauty is often overlooked. I saw her in a thriller from the 70โ€™s โ€˜Thrillerโ€™ series, in which she was possibly in her late 20s, and apart from putting on an excellent performance. one couldnโ€™t help notice how pretty she was - and still is. She was an adult when I was a kid!

I think sheโ€™s been eating a thoroughly sound diet because if she has lost any height, it doesnโ€™t notice!

Maureen has just started her first role in Classic Coronation Street - as someone completely different. To be quite honest, the only thing starkly obvious is her auburn hair colour; her height seems pretty much the same.

๐Ÿ˜Ÿ Correction Time! ๐Ÿ˜€

I should have written โ€˜THIS little trivialityโ€™ rather than writing merely โ€˜little trivialityโ€™.
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Sep/22
I knew it! I JUST KNEW IT! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Maureenโ€™s Evelyn just HAD to be tearing the wrong coat from the perfectly respectable customer!

Now letโ€™s see how Roy is going to cope with little trivialityโ€ฆโ€ฆ!

The fabulous Maureen gets 5ft6.75.

โญ๏ธ No, it was โ€˜a stuck-up little madamโ€™, which is every bit as funny!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Jul/22
The fracas between Evelyn and Mimi in tonightโ€™s Coronation Street was completely hilarious, right down to the dog insulting match. Evelyn called Mimiโ€™s dog, Coco, a โ€˜stuck-up bitchโ€™ - as both Cerberus and Coco looked on bemused.

Wonderful stuff! ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

Maureenโ€™s character was inebriated in tonightโ€™s Coronation Street, and her attempts to cover it up were hilarious!

5ft6.75. Iโ€™m not going for less because Fiz looks positively short next to Maureen.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Nov/21
In the early hours of this morning, I watched an episode of 'George and Mildred', and I thought that Mildred's sister, Ethel Pomphrey, was played by Maureen Lipman. The actress had the same delicate facial features as Maureen and was very pretty, and as for accents, anyone of a certain age will know that for Maureen, that poses no problem at all, as she can mimic any accent! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Then when Mildred actress, Yootha Joyce, stood up at the same time as her 'sister', I could tell that it was 100% impossible for the guest actress to be Maureen. She was far too short.

In fact, Ethel was played by the late Avril Elgar, who starred in major films, including 'The Medusa Touch', 'Wilde', 'Betrayal' and the award-winning 1959 movie 'Room At The Top', as well as loads upon loads of TV work. Avril was 5ft2.5, and born on the 1st April 1932, dying only recently - on the 17th September just gone, aged 89, so quite considerably older than Maureen, but in 'George and Mildred', Avril looked far younger than her years.

Maureen gets 5ft6.75.

@ Nik - What terrible news tonight's episode had in store. That nasty, beastly girl who deliberately caused the perilous fire needs to go into a correctional facility.
Nik Ashton said on 4/Aug/21
@ Sandy Cowell - Thatโ€™s true, if she has lost height it ainโ€™t much!

I know that Evelyn really will look down on Tyroneโ€™s behaviour and
letโ€™s hope her grandson doesnโ€™t take after his Dad, he is a poor role model.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Aug/21
She sure is, Nik!

On learning that her grandson is going to have a son, Evelyn says out of the corner of her mouth, "...and I hope he doesn't take after his father!" ๐Ÿ˜›

The ever-comical Maureen gets 5ft6.75.

Nik Ashton said on 6/Jul/21
@ Sandy Cowell - Tyrone is a legit 5โ€™6โ€ so Iโ€™m sure Maureenโ€™s Evelyn is legit too!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Jul/21
Maureen's Evelyn has to look DOWN to her grandson, Tyrone, in 'Coronation Street'! How unusual would that be in real life? ๐Ÿ˜ณ

I love her sarcasm to her 'big lummox' of a grandson! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Maureen's character in 'Coronation Street', Evelyn, is indeed an interesting one.

She has named her dog Cerberus, and I think that might possibly have something to do with a Harry Potter character. I'm not in the least well acquainted with the books or even the films.

The original Cerberus, however, comes from Greek Mythology, and he is the three-headed dog who guards the entrance to Hades, i.e. the Underworld, or lower world. Hats off to JK Rowling for introducing such names into the lives of today's youngsters, some of whom are bound to investigate for a fuller explanation.

Maureen's guess today is 5ft6.75. She stands well, taking years off her and helping maintain her original height. And don't forget, we don't see her done up to the nines in the Soap; she's still a highly attractive woman.


โญ It's a slightly funny coincidence that the local 'smalls' factory in C. Street is called 'Underworld', ๐Ÿ‘™ and is very much the main source of employment for the Street's locals, unless they've been lucky enough to have been educated to a more advanced level, which isn't so easy for some working class families.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/May/21
I'm so glad that Maureen's fun-loving, cheeky character, Evelyn, is back on the Coronation Street cobbles. I've missed her, and what does she do as soon as she enters Roy's Rolls? She says to Roy of Andrew Whyment's Kirkie something on the grounds of "If his tadpole was the fastest swimmer, I dread to think what the others were like?" ๐Ÿคญ

Roy takes offence, his young niece having suffered dreadful GBH and her boyfriend murdered because they looked 'different' to the eyes of some young, senseless yobs. Good point, Roy, good point. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿค“

Anyway, Evelyn and Roy make up shortly afterwards, and Roy apologizes for being too touchy. I like it when the two are on good terms. Out of the older members of the cast, they're by far the most fun!

Maureen can have 5ft6.75. ๐Ÿ’

Last night I watched an old 70s Brian Clemens Thriller, and Maureen received top billing. Also starring in this was John Le Mesurier and James Grout, famous for playing Inspector Morse's boss, who never appreciated him. ๐Ÿ‘…

Maureen played a 29-year-old librarian, and took it upon herself to involve herself in the local killings of young girls, calling the Police. The killer was actually John Le Mesurier, who worked in the library with Maureen, whose character's name was Elizabeth Morris.

She was, and still is, a beautiful woman, with thick, wavy, dark brunette hair and she certainly looked tall. I think she's maintained her height very well indeed.

So sorry and saddened to hear that Maureen lost her partner of 13 years, Guido Castro, on Thursday, 28th January.

Much sympathy to Dame Maureen and all who are friends with the couple. ๐Ÿ’

RIP Guido XXX ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ

Maureen has starred with the cream of Hollywood and now we have the privilege of watching her in 'Coronation Street'.

I did enjoy being privy to her conversation with Paula Wilcox about rescue dogs. Maureen's Evelyn told Paula's character that her dog, Cerberus, used to be a racing dog, and they so overdid his racing that he still suffers from arthritis in his back legs. "But we do alright, don't we Cerberus?" Evelyn concluded; "A couple of old crocs together!"

How I love that expression! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Oct/20
Coronation Street's Evelyn is considerably taller than her man friend. Even taking into account that she might be wearing some kind of heel, I can't see more than 5ft4.25 for him.

Maureen continues her role as Evelyn with a great deal of humour and her antics, and the way she words her goings-on, are highly entertaining. No wonder my Mum liked her so much!

Her posture is good and she still looks above average. She's getting 5ft6.75, though was probably around 5ft7.5 in her youth.

Paul Wood said on 3/Aug/20
A bit shorter now I'd say. She's over 70 so maybe just over 5ft 6in rather than nearly 5ft 7in.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/May/20
Maureen's Evelyn is being taken out by her new man friend. "Will they be serving food there?" she enquires with bated breath.

On hearing that, yes, they will be, she grabs an empty lunchbox in order to pinch as large a sample as the box will accommodate! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

I've known women like that! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘

5ft6.75 for this hilarious lady, who my Mum adored. I can understand why now!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/May/20
I never took note of Maureen appearing in The Pianist.... until now!

I'll look out for her next time I see this extremely moving, award-winning film. Maureen will be just over 5" shorter than Adrien Brody, who's bang on 6ft, but I did think he was a touch taller.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Apr/20
"You're like a walking 'Carry On' film, aren't you? Always bored the liver out of me!"

So said Maureen's character, Evelyn, to the bullying Geoff when he was attempting to be witty. Well said, Evelyn! You haven't been broken down mentally by this yucksome creature, so you can still go ahead and say what we're all thinking. Excellent Evelyn, excellent!

Now Maureen really is a good laugh, whether it's in or out of the Street!

She looks a tad taller than Alan Halsall!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Dec/19
โญ Make that 10 years apart! Peter Gunn's character Brian and Tristan Gemmill's Robert are 10 years apart age-wise and not 8, as I put a couple of days back.

They are also of EQUAL height.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Dec/19
While manning Dev's grocery store, Maureen's Coronation Street character, Evelyn, couldn't help herself butting in on hearing that Peter Gunn's character, Brian Packham, thought he had a great deal in common with the handsome Robert! (Tristan Gemmill)

Evelyn blurted out that he looks as much like Robert as she looks like Dev Alahan! Brian said that he and Robert are of similar age (Huh! 8 years apart!) and have the same muscular frame. I thought the days were over that plumpness was waived off for muscle, but clearly not!

The only thing the two men DO have in common is that they are of similar height. Peter is 5ft11 and Tristan is 5ft11.5. Maureen, with her 5ft6.75, is equivalent to a man of 5ft11.75, so she's taller than the both of them! ๐Ÿ˜
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Oct/19
Critisizing Fiz's cooking in tonight's 'Coronation Street' episode, Maureen's character Evelyn Plummer said of her toad in the hole, "The only good thing about it is the hole!" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Well, at least no one will be gaining weight on a diet like THAT!

I don't think that she has lost much height!

Maureen's character talking to Roy Cropper in 'Coronation Street' just now:
Her dog, Cerberus, nicked a sausage from Roy's Restaurant, and consequently, the dog, and Maureen, were Banned!

Maureen retorted, "My dog is better behaved and cleaner than most of the people who come in here!" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Nice one Maureen! I know many an example myself!

5ft6.75 for this hilarious lady.
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Jan/19
I look forward to every performance that Maureen has to offer in 'Coronation Street'! I can't see her being written out anytime soon - I just can't!

Sandy Cowell said on 18/Jan/19
@ Rob - Well, good for her if that's the case!

Earlier today, I went upstairs to see the cats who sleep there, and I came across my copy of 'Grumpy Old Women'! I'd put it to one side a couple of days ago, but ended up finding others that I was on the look-out for, including 'Jamaica Inn' and my two copies of 'The Sentinel', which my DVD player always rejected. They cost a freakin' fortune; it has SO many great names in it and it WORKED on my new TV, which has a DVD player incorporated.

So apart from having the luxury of being able to pause 'The Sentinel' to take in the stars heights, I also have some 'Grumpy Old Women' to have a laugh with. I wanted to see it for Jenny ร‰clair, but now I know that Maureen is among the other women having a good old fashioned rant! Rant away ladies! Rant away to your hearts' content!

Nice picture Rob! It's more suitable than when she dressed older and did those telephone ads! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ

I was really quite surprised when it hit home that Maureen was an attractive woman who dressed like a complaining battleaxe! Apart from seeing visual evidence, my Mum told me! She rated Maureen as an actress and comedienne, and now this amazing woman has added humour and even a touch of mystery by taking on a role in 'Coronation Street'. It's a shame my Mum's no longer with us. She'd have been glued to her TV set!

She can look Audrey (Sue Nicholls) straight in the face, but is definitely not quite as tall. I feel her listing is spot-on.
Editor Rob
I think Maureen's the type of women who got measured 5ft 6.75 and claimed it, rather than rounding up.
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Jan/19
Yesterday in 'Coronation Street', Maureen's character popped along to Lewis's funeral to gloat! When Sue Nicholls's Audrey steamed into Claudia, played by Rula Lenska, over her missing money, Maureen came out with, "I think I'm going to warm to this woman!" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Maureen does come across as being shorter than this these days, she is certainly above average though!
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Sep/18
It's great to see Maureen starring in 'Coronation Street'. As soon as I saw her yesterday, I just knew she'd become a permanent fixture; famous names like that have a habit of doing so!

I've always been of the opinion that Maureen is fairly tall, for her generation especially. She can have 5ft6.75.
