Carol Vorderman slams 'tragic' Coronation Street for lack of humour

Share article:

Carol Vorderman has slammed "tragic" "Coronation Street" and has begged bosses to make it "funny again."

The former "Countdown" host has asked producers to turn the long-running soap around because she hasn't laughed watching it since last year and has admitted even comedienne Mary Taylor - played by Patti Clare - who is known for her hilarious one-liners, has been slapped with some sombre storylines recently.

Taking to her Twitter account last night (20.12.17), Carol said: "I've put this on my list to Santa this year..

"PUR-LEAZE Father Christmas make Corrie funny again....the last time I had a laugh watching it was in about September 2016.. even wonderful Mary is now tragic. #BringBackCorrieComedy (sic)."

And some of Carol's fans agreed with her as some had said they'd given up watching in recent weeks.

To which the 56-year-old star replied: "Agreed.....just watching the bit where Anna (bless her) who has just nearly murdered Eileen, Rosie not said that Phelan went into the office to plant evidence, Anna and Fay(e) lying in a car surrounded by police and Anna says to her "Faye have I ever let you down?"...er....????? (sic)"

But it seems there will be no humour on the soap this festive season as Connor McIntyre has teased that his evil alter-ego Pat Phelan will take a dark turn over the next coming weeks.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I haven't seen much further up the road for Phelan but I imagine it will get darker Let's put it this way - I think my long-term future on the show is in serious doubt. I find myself asking what happens to a person once they realise a problem can be solved his way - does that become a default position?"
