- It appeared that Nellie (and the Dingles in general) had a widespread infamous reputation due to the fact that a female store detective at Hotten department store let Mandy off for shoplifting once she knew Nellie was her aunt. She told her colleague that when they previously had “that Nellie Dingle in court, it turned into a riot. They converged from all over the country. Dingles. Evil hoardes of throwbacks reeking of pigs. Never again.” (episode 2210, 27th May 1997)
