Pam Hobsworth (née Compton), played by Kate Anthony, made her first appearance on 16th July 2008. Pam Hobsworth's arrival was announced in April 2008. Initially planned along with the news about Jackie Dobbs and John Stape's return, set to arrive as Molly Compton's "Auntie Pam", this fits in well for the development of Molly and Tyrone; whose mother is returning too this Summer, Jackie had previously been seen for a year between 1998 and 1999.[1]


Pam was originally introduced in July 2008, seen as a stranger selling ham to Blanche Hunt in the Rovers Return. When Molly arrived at the pub, they recognised each other instantly. Pam appeared in the next episode, waiting with Jack Duckworth - Molly and her boyfriend, Tyrone's lodger - whilst Molly and Tyrone went to a restaurant, with Tyrone attempting to propose marriage to Molly. When they returned, Pam and Jack found out that Tyrone had not yet proposed, due to another couple announcing their engagement in the same restaurant before Tyrone had had the chance to propose. In an episode on 25 July Pam extravagantly bought Tyrone a mimick egg, in order to propose to Molly. Tyrone decided to propose in The Rovers instead of in a restaurant, but things went wrong. A surprise proposal from Molly was later organised the following episode, Molly also used a mimick egg, and the two finally got engaged.

Pam told Jack, Molly, and Tyrone that she could leave if she'd worn out her welcome, but they insisted she stay. Pam had led them to believe her husband had died, but confided in Molly that he'd thrown her out for having an affair with the renderer.

Pam convinced Tyrone that Molly wanted a lavish wedding, and began teaching him how to make more money.

Tyrone became concerned that Pam's sales were affecting Ashley Peacock's butchers-business but Pam sold him twenty jars of pickle for £20 but Molly soon found that she had lost her engagement ring and they both were convinced that it was in one of the pickle's but when Molly told Tyrone he said that Jack had found it and kept it safe.

Pam entered into a small row with Tyrone's mother Jackie after Jackie had upset Molly and Tyrone, Pam then stated "that she is tougher than she looks".
