Percy Sugden and Albert Tatlock in 1983.

Percy Sugden moved into Coronation Street in 1983. He lived at the community centre flat. He was a know all who always rubbed other residents up the wrong way and made this clear when he moved into Coronation Street. Percy briefly knew Albert Tatlock but Albert went to live with his daughter and later died. Percy clashed with Fred Gee over a motor car he was selling. Percy once told Fred to clean his pipes out, and gave him money for a bus fare when he said the raffle is still on. Fred grabbed Percy by the throat and had to be restrained by Terry Duckworth. Percy started checking his neighbours back yards in a Neighbourhood Watch scheme. He was once mistaken for a burglar until Alf Roberts vouched for him.

Percy soon gained a reputation for being a nosey parker. He later lodged with Emily Bishop.

In July 1997 Percy was against the new Battersby family moving in as they were loud and uncouth. They gave the quiet Coronation Street a bad name. Percy was told to back off by Toyah Battersby when he turned her radio off after it was playing loud music. Percy often had disputes with Les Battersby.

In October 1997 Percy left to move into a retirement home called Mayfield Court. Several Coronation Street residents may have been pleased that the nosey old parker had left the area.

After 1997Edit

Percy never returned to Coronation Street after he moved to Mayfield Court. He has not even been back to see Emily.

As of 2017, what has become of Percy is uncertain. If he is still alive he will be 95 years old.

Memorable infoEdit

In 1972 there was a character called Arthur Sugden, a sea cadet officer. May be a cousin of Percy.

One time in 1984, Percy was jokingly called "Percival" as Percy is often a pet name for Pericval but Percy is a name in its own right. Whether Percy's full first name was Percival is unknown.
