Vera leaving the cobbles really made me blubbing. I'm not sure if Hayley's departure will make me feel the same?

I think this will be worse than verand jack put together.

I do wonder how people that are suffering with terminal illness cope with this in soaps. Aren't soaps supposed to be an escape? Very sad.

Last time I watched Corrie Curly was in it.

I'm going to try and watch it but have a feeling it might get a bit overwhelming. The acting so far has been amazing.

I have to watch this but know it is going to bring up a lot of feelings as my kids just lost their dad to cancer.

My tissues are well and truly ready. I have watched every episode so can't miss this one and need a good cry anyway.

It's very close to what a friends sister is going through at the moment. The youngest is only 12. Apparently she can't stop watching it sad

SamU2 Mon 20-Jan-14 19:44:23

That is how my boys are, they want to watch it although I think it will be upsetting. They are around the same age as your friends sister and their dad passed 5 weeks ago.

Except for the suicide part everything else is really similar.. the timeline as well.

It must be very close to home for a lot of people. sad

SamU2 Mon 20-Jan-14 19:47:33

Lighthouse that was meant to say the same age as your friends sister's child.

Yep, hits close to home for loads I am sure sad

I don't know if it's true but someone said it in all the soaps at the moment.

zizzo Mon 20-Jan-14 19:56:48

I thought she was meant to do her big goodbye scene on NYE?

Have I got confused? Maybe I read "in the new year" somewhere.

Oh heck I'm away already.

RhondaJean Mon 20-Jan-14 20:00:05

Not often you turn to eastenders for light relief eh.

SamU2 Mon 20-Jan-14 20:02:10

sad

Sparklingbrook Mon 20-Jan-14 20:06:11

I think there's a cancer storyline in eastenders.....

SamU2 Mon 20-Jan-14 20:19:01

Yes, Carol has Breast Cancer.

sonlypuppyfat Mon 20-Jan-14 20:20:17

I've been blubbering already it's very sad.

FamiliesShareGerms Mon 20-Jan-14 20:23:02

I will be watching Corrie tonight for the first time in over 10 years with my hankies at the ready...

DelightedIAm Mon 20-Jan-14 20:23:10

Yes Carol and Hayley. I think Carol's storyline isn't terminal though. I don't even properly follow the soaps, will watch Corrie later.

LemonMousse Mon 20-Jan-14 20:27:21

The bit that set me off was when Fizz said she'd have to go with the children and the sudden realisation on Hayley's face that that was the very last time she'd see them sad

Great acting by Julie Heckmondwycke(sp?)

LemonMousse Mon 20-Jan-14 20:29:00

That would be Hesmondhalgh blush

Ahhh Roy sad
I appear to have something in my eye now.

Shhh, I'm on +1, she's still in the cafe!

squoosh Mon 20-Jan-14 20:47:43

Why are they forcing Tyrone into the scene?

BelleateSebastian Mon 20-Jan-14 20:51:08

I sort of want Roy to go with her, I cant imagine how he will go on without her itsnotrealitsnotrealitsnotreal confused sad
