Poisonous Hazel made one of her mercifully rare visits to Ambridge in summer 2005 and only left having failed to persuade Jack to sign Grey Gables over to her.

She never visited her father in all the time he was in a care home. But when Jack died in January 2014, Hazel arrived full of crocodile tears and became a very wealthy woman - although she had hoped for even greater riches, to Peggy's disgust.

She also became the owner of the building used by the Ambridge Community Shop, and Keeper's Cottage, rented by the Grundys.
