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…

Even celebrities were struggling to hold back the tears…

One very dedicated fan even decided to honour Hayley with his choice of outfit…

While the actress who played Hayley Cropper, Julie Hesmondhalgh herself, took to Twitter to say her final goodbye to the red anorak-wearing Corrie character…

Sob. Someone pass the tissues! 

Coronation Street continues on Wednesday at 7:00pm on ITV.
