While poor Tyrone struggled to take in the news that his mum had died, it seemed Corrie fans also found the news hard to digest…

Even EastEnders actress Gillian Taylforth was shocked by the sudden off-screen death…

Despite only being in the soap for a short time, Jackie certainly made her presence felt.

She first appeared on our screens in 1998, played by actress Margi Clarke, but was written out a year later.

After making a few more appearances before being written out for good in 2010, it seems fans had been clinging on to the hope that we might get to see Tyrone’s troublemaking mum back on the Street one more time.

While the details surrounding Jackie’s death remain a mystery for now, the timing couldn’t have been worse when it comes to Tyrone and Fiz’s relationship.
