Teaming up with value communications provider Plusnet for a new video, Antony Cotton, 45, who plays Sean Tully in the soap, asked his mum what she wants for Mother’s Day this weekend. Enid was left unimpressed when he asked: “How would you feel if I bought you a nice big, beautiful, gorgeous scented candle?”
She replied: “Urghh. It’s like burning pound notes.”
Instead, she told him to not waste his money and keep Mother’s Day simple.
The video is being released by Antony and Plusnet as part of an ongoing campaign celebrating the simple things in life, like good value.
The clip begins with Enid struggling to get to grips with the video call, leaving Antony in dismay with his hands over his face.
While he offered to help her set it up, Enid said she was fine figuring it out for herself.
After seeing it up, he went on to ask her: “Okay Enid. I want to ask you what you want for Mother’s Day because every year you tell me that you don’t want anything.”
She replied: ‘I don’t need nowt. I really really don’t need anything at all.
“Mother’s Day is to have a family gathering in front of the video call so that I can see them and talk to them. I don’t want any gimmicks.”
Antony then told Enid he’ll buy her the biggest, bestest cake she’s ever seen.
She said: “Antony! You won’t be told, will you? Now bl**dy well listen. Simple, Antony. Just keep it simple. That’s all I need.
“Antony – you tell me this – the more complicated you make things, the more money you throw down the drain.”
The actor and his mother agreed to meet in the middle with a four layered “vicky sponge”, to which Enid responded, “That’ll do!”
It comes as new research from Yorkshire-based value communications provider Plusnet revealed 92 per cent of mums think it’s important to teach children about the value of money from a young age, so they grow up understanding what a good deal is.
Like Enid, 72 per cent of women plan to pass down advice about personal finance to their children, compared to 63 per cent of men, according to a survey of 2,000 UK adults commissioned.
The mother and son first worked together on a campaign for the company last year.
In the clip, she joked he wasn’t too old for a slap as she told him off being cheeky to her.
Enid currently volunteers for Bolton NHS Foundation but has also been on screen like her son.
She has starred in the likes of Doctors, Cutting It and Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights.
Antony has been playing his Corrie character since 2003.
As well as this, he stared as Alexander Perry in the original Queer as Folk series.
In 2007, he also secured his own programme titled That Antony Cotton Show.
