Last night took telly viewers on a sad and sombre trip to Coronation Street. There were no spats in the pub, no sparky exchanges in the corner shop… The two half-hour episodes instead focused on the departure of a well-loved character.
After 16 years on the cobbled streets of Corrie, Hayley Cropper said her goodbyes, taking her own life after her cancer became terminal.
Coronation Street fans were impressed by the show’s handling of a difficult issue, and many were moved to tears…
Ellie is an entertainment, TV and film journalist writing news and (hopefully incredibly witty) comment for RadioTimes.com. She loves light-hearted dramas and glossy US series - and is more than a little bit obsessed with Downton Abbey. Foodie, sun-seeker and aspiring novelist in her own time. Likes the fact that her name rhymes with telly.
