Same! He seems so sweet-and utterly besotted with Eileen. Maybe a bit of a father figure for Seb too? 

Anyone else absolutely hating Chesney and Gemma together or is it just me? Gemma was actually quite comical at times before, when she was just a background character, but now shes on screen ALL the time, and to be honest I find her constant gurning and ridiculous behaviour so irritating I have to fast forward her scenes.

Omg, I just wrote something similar a few days ago on a Facebook group. I couldn't stand Gemma at first, back when kylie was around. Then she grew on me. She was funny and had a caring side. Now,  good lord,the writers destroyed her. She's awful.  I ff through most her scenes too. Just so over the top reckless disgusting behavior.  I get that the writers need keep things interesting but Gemma isn't interesting she's gross, licking a plate clean ugh. It annoys me because I really liked her. Much like Tim who I still really like. The character changed for the better.  Abi too.  They regressed Gemma, no she's not mean Gemma, but she's  gross. 

Peter is also annoying me.

Don't know if it's true, but I read that Jan isn't exactly what he seems.

I was just thinking this! I’m a little behind with Corrie, and I’ve just watched the episode where Seb takes the girl from the nail bar to speed Dahl and she scarpers after seeing Jan, made me think her ‘landlady’ is a brothel Madam and Jan is either a paying customer or he helps to run it! Like some sort of human trafficking racket

I LOVE Abi now, she and Tim are two of my favourites. And she’s got a cracking pair of legs 😂

Yes, I read Jan would be involved with human trafficking.  Why are all these women after him for heaven's sake?  I sure don't see it

So many leaving. 

Just read that Sinead and Alex are also leaving.

So Michelle, Robert, Alex kate and Sinead Bethany. I also thought I read Dev but I'm not positive if he was leaving for good or just taking a break.

I love coronation street but lord it has been so boring lately.  I dont care about Carla and Peter.  I cant think of any other story that's even a bit interesting.  Steve and Tracy at least give me a laugh.

I’m with you there! I 100% blame McLeod, ever since he took over the storylines have been getting more and more ridiculous. Not to mention there’s a mass exodus of actors coming up. (Some are welcome, like Kate)but the likes of Bethany leaving?? There’s so much more that could be done with her but they’re just wasting her with this juvenile ‘on again, off again’ story with Ryan. 

In all my years I’ve never missed an episode of Corrie, now I have it on but I’m not really paying attention. It’s background noise while I’m doing housework, or reading. I can’t face watching the entire programme

I will note one thing - the shows obsession with making Everything About Carla is maintained no matter who the show runner is. This is just another rehash of the time she thought she was responsible for that stupid fire that killed Leanne’s fella. It doesn’t make me root for her justice. It just irritates me that every single producer ever to step foot on this show apparently thinks she’s the one character who should get every storyline going and then they Mary Sue the crap out of her throughout.

I could cheerfully punch Geoff in the nose. What a passive-aggressive whiny bully he is. Can’t wait for Yasmeen to tell him to “do one”! 😄

I’m so BORED of this whole Carla storyline now. The way they’ve made her lose her marbles is so out of proportion with the whole event. With the one exception of ‘post Frank’ Carla, when she went off the rails a little bit, it’s so out of character with who she’s supposed to be. The Carla before McLeod came aboard would have turned to the red wine and fought tooth and nail to find out who is responsible. 

Now we discover it’s Gary, and quite frankly, I’m relieved. Gary used to be a favourite character of mine, but in the last couple of years he’s become so pathetic and down and out, going from one (boring) dodgy escapade to the next. 

I’ve been a fan of Corrie since I was old enough to walk,  but it’s become more farcical than eastenders, and I gave up watching that 15 years ago!

Respectfully disagree. When she thought got the blame for the Victoria Street apartment that killed Alyas dad and Leanne’s fella Kal she also feel into a similar self pitying spiral. The storyline is almost the exact same only a) they’ve put a mental health spin on it and b) at least there’s an actual culprit who tampered with the roof when last time although it was Tracy who left the candle lighting the whole idea that she was solely to blame the fire getting so out of control and killing people was hilarious. Fair enough it’s deathly irresponsible but nobody questioned the lack of fire alarms and slow response of the firefighters. 

God that storyline was ridiculous and much like all Carla storylines draining and eye rolling to watch.

I stand corrected, I’d wiped that whole ridiculous debacle from my memory, but yes, I remember how she spiralled. Not quite as extreme as this time, but they did make her go loopy. At least in the Victoria flats fire  she was actually there, so narrowly losing her own life added to the trauma of what happened to Kal. 

Nevertheless, the storyline is still mind-numbingly boring. And the whole ‘let’s make Robert and Nick behave über suspiciously with a slightly evil edge to make them look suspicious’ is nothing short of pantomime writing. 

Now, if it had been Kate that died in the roof collapse, then took Leanne, Pointless Maria, Geoff, Brian, Gurning Gemma and her brother with her, I wouldn’t mind so much 😂

At least there’s Kate’s exit to look forward to. The rest of the characters you’ve listed above were stuck with for the foreseeable. 

I’d be happiest if they got rid of Carla. She sucks up so much screen time and Apparently producers think she’s the only actress on the show as every storyline goes to her. I laughed when it was announced there was going to be a Carla centric episode.. isn’t every episode at this point more or less one.

I do agree about Carla, but it pains me to, because once upon a time I absolutely loved her. I was so excited when it was announced they were bringing her back. But apart from the initial first few months, when she was her usual, sassy, loaded self, they’ve utterly destroyed her and shoved her in our faces so much, that I actually can’t wait for her to get written out again. 

And Peter! I’ve always loved Peter, but Carla’s decline is ruining him too. He needs a good shave and to get the hell away from that happiness vacuum

Can someone please tell me where the writers brains were when they had Gary go round to Vicky’s house and ask for £200 in order to get her passport back!?

a new passport costs a maximum of £85, all she has to do is report it stolen! Dear god, are they employing children as writers!? 🤦🏻‍♀️

I'm watching some episodes n YouTube from 1999. The show was much better.

Sally looks exactly the same ,wow.

I'm so surprised Gail and Roy were so close. He thought of asking her to be his best man lol. To see them now, they barely interact.

Nick omg, the actor was so bad. Leann and he were not a good match.

Adam Rickitt 😂😂 he was shockingly bad! 😂😂 He and Leanne still aren’t a good match, she’s not a good match with anyone, she needs to get run over by a tram and leave for good. 

On a side note, I HATE that chipmunk voiced older son of the new family. What on gods earth were the casting people thinking of choosing him!?!?
