I love Corrie but with this new storyline I'm finished watching it. If I want to be depressed I can watch EastEnders. I hate seeing little kids sick in soaps and just feel they didn't have to go down this route? Anyone else going to turn off?

I'm not sure I'll be able to watch much of it. They are planning a huge episode on Xmas day for what could be hopes last Xmas and I know I'll be an absolute wreck so I'll maybe give it a miss

Hope is Fizz and John Stapes daughter.

I was watching it on Monday with DS2(18). He said "if they're doing a child with cancer story, I'm not watching it anymore." He probably wouldn't have watched it for much longer because he's off to uni, but I can see why he doesn't want to watch it.

I'll see how they handle it before I make my mind up, but I do hope that Christmas isn't her last . sad

Oh, no. They haven't gone down that road?! Jeez. Why??

Love Corrie but not sure I want to be 'entertained' by it. Christmas sounds like it's going to be a weep fest. No thanks.

Oh ffs as if the drawn out Hayley saga wasn't bad enough hmm I actually stopped watching after that. Who do they think would put on such depressing tripe on christmas?

That's a real shame. I think it's great that they are raising awareness for Neuroblastoma which kills 100+ children a year in the uk.

I understand the storyline is based on the experience of this little boy and his family

And here's his mum's response to feedback on the programme

YANBU

I don't want to watch a young girl get sick and die tyvm.

Oh, that's awful.

I just somehow see it as gratuitous. The Christmas special based on it and all. It's obviously good to raise awareness of childhood illness but it just doesn't seem right on a soap. Maybe I'm wrong.
