Esther Hayes was a Coronation Street resident in the 1960s. She was a spinster who lived at No.5, and frequently came to the aid of the neighbours when they had a problem. She moved to Glasgow in 1963.



Esther Hayes lived in Weatherfield in 1960, but she was originally from London. She lived alone and worked at a mail order firm. Some of the younger residents of the street, especially Christine Hardman and Ken Barlow, went to her for advice and she was always willing to lend a helping hand if it was needed.

In 1961, Esther's conman brother Tom got out of prison and showed up at Esther's door. Esther was obligated to take him in but she quickly saw that he hadn't changed his ways and couldn't cope with him. Fortunately he wasn't around for long.

Esther moved to a luxury flat at Moor Lane, not a great distance away from Coronation Street, in 1962, and moved to Glasgow in 1963 but was a regular fixture at weddings and funerals for a few years, including Ken Barlow and Valerie Tatlock's wedding, Val's funeral and Ernie Bishop and Emily Nugent's wedding in 1972.
