Margaret "Peggy" Skilbeck (née Sugden) was the daughter of Annie Sugden and the wife of Matt Skilbeck. Peggy married Matt Skilbeck in 1968 and had two children, Sam and Sally, in April 1973. Peggy died in July 1973 of a brain haemorrhage, leaving Matt a widower.
- Jo Kendall left the role of Peggy in early 1973. Peggy was killed off in July 1973.
- Peggy's headstone, which appears in Episode 104 (16th October 1973) displays her date of death as 12th May 1973. This date would later change to reflect the transmission date of the episode featuring her death - 16th July 1973.
- Peggy's birthdate is also inconsistent. Her headstone in Episode 104 says she was born 8th August 1946 but in Episode 716 (25th February 1982) her headstone says she died June 6th 1973 aged 29 years, thus giving a 1943/1944 birthdate.

"Well, to be quite honest Janie, I was in two minds about having them christened at all, but it's probably all for t'best, taking into account how t'family feel about it." (Final line)
