Did Patti’s Mary really mention the word ‘merkin’ and that she was wearing one? Ha ha - what colour was it? Pink?
Cross your legs, Mary, and control your tongue! 🤣🤣🤣

Patti’s Mary is so spontaneously funny, bursting out with ‘WC’ for Ken’s new - and old - lady friend! 🚽🚾 Tracy was quick to jump on the bandwagon, Wendy being the woman Ken had an affair with while he was married to her mother, Deirdre.
Mary’s also a very articulate woman, which, when mixed with her humour, makes for addictive viewing.

🔔 "That's what I call a Mary Taylor nimbly pimbly explosion!"
So says Mary during a game of chess with Roy Cropper in the café, watched by the eager eyes of Nick's young, genius son.
'Nimbly pimblies' ring a bell; 😆 they are mentioned by Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie or both during the one-off new Millennium, Black Adder 🐍 episode, 'Blackadder Back And Forth'.
Does Mary like the number one classic comedy or has the quotation crept in because the Coronation Street writers thought it might be a good idea? Either way, it's appropriate, as it's a New Year Special - some 22 years late!
Patti gets 5ft4. 😉💐

OMGoodness! The women are passing round a hip flask of tequila at Norris's funeral, and Patti's character, Mary, is partaking! 😵🥃 I missed that yesterday; no wonder the result is bedlam! 😯
Funny Patti gets 5ft4. 👩💐

Mary said, "Here! It's a housewarming present - a draught-excluder in the shape of a doggie-woggie!", and "I can't drink too much of that. It makes me over-urinate!" 😂🤭😄👌
These two original snippets were used by Mary in the same conversation, and they certainly stirred me away from sorting through my bits of paperwork!
She doesn't half come out with some funny bits and pieces. I wish I had a Mary Taylor as part of my social circle!
👩 ⬅️ = 5ft4.

"According to my Unexplained magazine, there's a woman in Bolton whose compost heap is haunted by the ghost of Anne Boleyn!"
Well, that proves something, Mary: ghosts aren't blessed with the sense of smell!
Funny Patti gets a guess for 5ft3.75.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Sep/20
Ha ha - this is so funny: a pink-masked Mary purchases herself something from Dev's grocery store, carefully reading that the ingredients are all up to scratch.
A little later, the clearly fussy Mary describes to Fiz and Tyrone her experience eating one of THEIR home made buns in the shop, coughing and spluttering because of the over- saltiness of their yukky confectionery and what happened as a result. "He (a stranger) had to do the Heinrich manoeuvre on me," complains Mary, "...only his hands were far too high up!" 🤭😯
Then she demonstrates with her hands what the stranger was getting up to. Oooooooh! I doubt that any woman would have been very enchanted, but as told by Patti Clare's Mary, it was priceless!
I see the actress as between 5ft3.75 and 5ft4, so this time round, she's getting 5ft4, seeming as she received 5ft3.75 from me last time.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 20/Sep/20
Mary's got another crush, this time with a bloke called George.
She crushes on guys very easily, and this time, young Emma has noticed correctly!
I do enjoy the banter between those two.
Patti Clare gets 5ft3.75. I almost gave her 5ft4. She's probably somewhere inbetween.....

@ Sandy Cowell - Ner, ner, ner, ner!
I haven’t noticed this but I will look out for her doing this in future! Patti Clare and Charlotte Bellamy could be height twins!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Dec/19
Mary fancies Adam! Ner ner ner ner ner! 😂🎄👍
Did anyone notice the 5ft3.75 Mary look up to 6ft Adam Barlow, played by Sam Robertson, AND SWOON? I did! 😃

On finding her jacket, Seb asks as to why her name is on it. She (Mary) replies that she was a member of a gang. Then she follows up with "I was the only member!" 😂😂😂

This was said describing the one whose head she ate, which was made out of a scotch egg! 😋😃🤣😂😅

Patti's character, Mary, had a dream which she converted into the need for a new passionate relationship.
She related it to Tracy and it went along these lines: "Last night I had a dream that I was at a ball surrounded by hunky men. I was very hungry and they all had sausage rolls for heads. Then one came along with a scotch egg for a head and I ate him all up!"
Tracy replied, "You ATE HIS HEAD?"
Mary's interpretation of the dream, that she was in need of a torrid romance, was right in my opinion. They say that hunger for food in dreams is akin to a hunger for eh.... something else!
The thoroughly entertaining, funny and original Patti Clare can have 5ft3.75. I wish Mary 'Good Luck' in her quest for romance. 👩❤️ Her pony-tailed Pole friend DID buy her a bouquet of flowers, after all!
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Feb/19
What a breath of fresh air Patti's character Mary plays! She clears up Tyrone's house for him 'as a favour' and won't accept any money from him.
I think Patti could be nearer 5ft4, but not quite, though doubtless she is in the morning, possibly more.
Nik said on 27/Jan/19
It's very interesting to find out how tall she is!

@Sandy Cowell thanks, she sure did. In Height I am something like this, out of bed-182.5 and before bed-181.

"The last time I saw him he had cheese under his fingernails!" 😕
She's observant - I only notice if they're dirty or clean! If they're dirty, I'd rather not get close enough to scent out what's causing the offensive spectacle.....😖
It's in that very scene that I realised just how much Nick (played by Ben Price, who's supposed to be 180cm) towers over everyone else.

Wasn't she funny creeping into Lewis Archer's funeral and bending down as she crept down the aisle to put her flowers down? She couldn't have been more obtrusive if she'd tried! 😂

Looks bit Like my mum (in her prime). 5'4 imo, Such a pretty height imo.

Quotation from last 'Coronation Street':
"And then he filled his nappy - twice! Bless him!" 😂😹😂
Mary was referring to her grandson and chatting to her pretty and charming daughter-in-law, whose patience has been exhausted with her son, who has just ripped her (Mum Mary) off and vamoosed. Life's so unfair to that poor woman, yet she still has a smile on her face and sings her heart out!
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jan/19
Patti seems to be standing there in her stockinged feet! I would have thought that's something that Mary would do, so maybe she's not as far removed from her in real life after all. 😏
I sincerely hope she's not as trusting! 🤧

Patti plays a funny and likeable character on 'Coronation Street', though with a sad background, and as we've been seeing so much of her over the recent weeks, it's been easy to take in her height, which isn't as short as I once thought. I would have expected 5ft2.5, but Patti's character Mary doesn't wear high heels much and dresses far older than her actual age in the Soap.
However, she has a tuneful little voice (most of the time!), and I quite enjoyed her rendition of Abba's 'Fernando' when she was in the car next to David Neilson's Roy Cropper, who does look some 5 or so inches taller than Patti when he stands up straight.
It's lovely to welcome Patti to Celebheights - thanks Rob! I've been observing her for ages. I can't see her having lost any height yet* and I reckon she wakes up to 5ft4 and an eighth and throughout the main duration of the day, 5ft3.75 seems as good an estimate as ever. 😊💐
*Patti was born in 1976, but plays a bit older.
Generally from what I've seen I'd have guessed her somewhere between 5ft 3.5 and 4.
