Alice Springs Horton (née Tinker) is a main character in the hit British comedy series 'The Vicar of Dibley'. She is married to Hugo Horton. Alice Horton is the verger at the town of Dibley and first learned under Reverend Pottle, until he died in 1994. Alice was then rather bewildered until the new "Vicara" came along.

Personality Edit

Dim-witted and naive Alice is the vicar's best, and most loyal, friend in the mad village of Dibley. Having lived a very sheltered existence, and been reared by a clinically insane mother, Alice often drives the vicar to distraction with her useless advice, empty-headed comments and general misunderstanding of the world outside the village. However, there have been notable occasions where Alice has offered very loving and sincere advice, and has shown genuine concern for the vicar. Despite this, she is generally held in extremely low esteem by the other villagers, particularly David Horton, who detests her and her low intelligence.

Profile Edit

Alice of course lives in Dibley. However, it was never actually stated whether or not she was born in Dibley, however this is most likely as she states that she and Hugo had known each other for twenty six years prior to their marriage. Alice became the verger at the local church, learning under the late Vicar, Reverend Pottle. When the Reverend Pottle died and Reverend Geraldine Granger (or "Vic-Stix" as Alice liked to call her) arrived, and she and Alice quickly befriended each other. She has an unnamed mother, who was later sectioned in an asylum, and a sister named Mary, who is in fact even more unintelligent than Alice, and is kept in the house, occasionally let out to meet guests.

Alice and Hugo were shown to be fond of each other and eventually married after the Vicar played Cupid. She gave birth to her first child, Geraldine (named for the Vicar), and then went on to have nine more unnamed children.
