Yes, very sad, but sadly a long time coming with her illness. Oh how I long for the day of Jack and Vera on the cobbles - a lot of the new characters haven’t a clue in comparison to Corrie of yesteryear.

I've just read she's showing signs of recovery, thankfully!

Classic Corrie last night with Eva and Aiden's sham wedding and this is their first week of six episodes... which I think is unnecessary as the quality isn't back up there yet to justify.

I hate the Wednesday slot for the new episode - now we don’t get any standalone episodes. I agree the quality isn’t back up, but it’s gettinng there - lots of storylines at the moment.

Poor Rita :cry:

Where the hell is Gail? She’s been missing for ages now.

No sign of Emily returning :evil:

RIP Liz Dawn. Such a wonderful actress playing such an iconic role.

Katy Armstrong killed off screen! All just to give Chesney a storyline? He should've been axed years ago :-?

Katy is no loss, and it makes sense to build a family unit around Chesney, considering he is in desperate need of a storyline. I don’t dislike him, but he’s such a bore - I hope the kid is a little shit :lol:

Hopefully with Katy dead Izzy will be inspired to move away too. I actually laughed at her attempts at dramatic crying :lol:

No she's no loss at all but I always find it a cheap plot device. I guess they've done it to explore Daniel's obsession with Sinead more, now she's been thrust closer to Chesney than ever.

Can't believe Phelan killed Andy AFTER ALL THAT! :roll:

Andy had so many chances to get away though, so he was a bloody fool. He'll be coming after Anna now, and now he's lost his daughter and already killed a man he's not going to hold back.

I don't get it, should he not have been suspended pending the results? Ken Barlow was accused of much worse and he wasn't axed!

We don’t know the facts. Best not to speculate, but his sacking doesn’t indicate anything good. Ken Barlow was found not guilty of all charges.

But as far as I'm aware he hasn't been found guilty yet. It's just an investigation at the moment.

Absolutely. But clearly Corrie know more than has been publicly released.

There must be more to it surely for him to be sacked like this. For continuity purposes it's a nightmare! Wonder how they'll explain Todd's departure on the show?

An argument with Billy and a swift return to London I suppose.

They have already said they won't be filming anymore with him. Sounds like the whole nazir family drama when the granda was axed for being a racist.

I feel for Anna, she's had nothing but awful luck since she hooked up with Owen and it seems like it's only going to get worse.

She brings it on herself though. Well, maybe not legs burning, but she should have called social services. Those kids were living in a horrific environment with a ghastly mother. Although I absolutely love the woman who plays her - she was always my favourite in Shameless.
