The soap icon further requested for her body to be burned after her death at the Rochdale Alzheimer care facility.

The will she completed in 2012, nearly 11 years after her death.

Meg played a key role in a number of some major Emmerdale episodes, such as being caught in a burning house during the Sugden house fire, forming an addiction to gambling and then creating fake Alzheimer’s.

The Manchester-born actress who was able to pursue an acting and screen profession after her family was evacuated in the Second World War, battled Alzheimer’s disease for several years before she passed away.
