Grotbags, alter ego of Carol Lee Scott, has died at the age of 74. She first caught the eyes with an appearance on Rod Hull’s Emu’s World.

Her character Grotbags was a dastardly pantomime witch, with a bright green wig and face to match. She famously hated “brats” and did her best to spoil the fun of children, using her “Bazazzer” – a pointy stick with a gold hand on the end of it.

Fans of the show flooded Twitter with comments, with Gary Dewar writing: “Daleks. Zelda. Skeletor. Nothing – NOTHING – terrified me quite like Grotbags. Bravo!”

Noob added: “Rest in peace Grotbags. You made my early years awesome. I was so scared of you!” … The show, set in the Gloomy Fortress, also starred puppeteer Richard Coombs.

If you never saw her, this is what you missed:
