Star treating nurses after her recovery
KEEPING Up Appearances star Patricia Routledge is giving tickets for her show to nurses who helped her.
The 88-year-old, who played Hyacinth Bucket, had to ditch a one-woman show after hurting herself in a fall at Buxton, Derbys.
She is returning on Friday to talk about her career and decided on the giveaway. Dame Patricia said: “The show will be a very special memory. I cannot praise the services of the NHS too highly. .”
Tickets are being given to A&E nurses at hospitals in Buxton and Stepping Hill, near Manchester, where she was treated.
Nurse chief Alison Lynch said: “We’re delighted.”
