CORRIE bosses sparked a North-South difference after a impression used a word “mingebag”.
Southerners were frightened during what they suspicion was a pre-watershed anxiety to women’s private parts.
But amused Northerners were discerning to indicate out that a tenure is indeed jargon for someone who is parsimonious with money.
Tracy McDonald called hubby Steve a “mingebag” for holding her to a curry residence that had a ignored dishes offer.
Taurean Bordeaux wrote on Twitter: “Mary Whitehouse would be spinning in her grave if she had listened Tracy McDonald saying mingebag.”
Jody Irwin wrote: “Surely this isn’t authorised to be pronounced on TV?” But Northerners insisted a term, believed to have originated in Liverpool, was excellent to use.
Merseysider Kelly Jones, 27, said: “We use it all a time, we didn’t realize it was uncanny until we spoke to people in a South.”
But it does not seem to have done it to a East Midlands, where mum-of-three Amy Kyne, 27, was examination in Newark, Notts.
She said: “I was utterly repelled when we listened it. we only kept meditative about my nan examination it during home.
“I haven’t dared ask her about it — she’s really old-fashioned.”
A Coronation Street source said: “The word mingebag is a Scouse jargon tenure for a tightwad.
“The author is Scouse and Steve was perplexing to get divided with a inexpensive dish so they used a tenure to report him.”
