Maud Grimes (née Michaelson) was intent on destroying the relationship between her daughter Maureen and Reg Holdsworth. She succeeded over 20 years ago but was powerless to stop their courtship and marriage in 1995

Maud despises Reg, thinking him to be an unsuitable partner for her daughter and has tried many times to cause trouble between them. However, tables were turned when she overheard her two sons-in-law arguing over who was going to be "lumbered" with looking after her during Maureen and Reg's wedding reception. Perhaps the fear of being unwanted and left alone is the reason why Maud strives to control her daughter's life.

For a while Maud was engaged to be married to Percy but he broke off the engagement when he discovered that Maud had an affair with an American soldier during World War II, and that Maureen was the resulting child of that relationship. She has since proposed to Percy again, but he turned her down thinking that she was joking.

Still living in her old home in Nightingale Road, with a penchant for bizarre tea-cosy shaped hats, reading the tea leaves and other spirit-related skills (remember how she tried to "summon" the ghost of Ivy Brennan?) Maud is an easily recognizable character in the Street.
