Sarah Lancashire slams Coronation Street

Sarah Lancashire would never return to "Coronation Street".

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 there was certainly no humour over the festive season as fans have just seen Carla Connor (Alison King) reveal that she has kidney failure and needs an operation desperately.
