I know it isn't real but some characters make me want to either scream or vomit!

The top two contenders are the vile Sharon and her son 'Denny' in Eastenders!! Are some mothers really as blind sighted as she when it comes to her horrible son??

Anyone else??

NotYoMomma Thu 24-Oct-13 11:55:32

I can't even watch kirsty on strictly come dancing. I find it so hard to detach her from her corrie character!!!

I dont have that problem with anyone else!

except maybe Gail and David platt

Writerwannabe83 Thu 24-Oct-13 11:56:32

Gail Platt is definitely another....what a pathetic woman she is!! smile

I want Darren in Hollyoaks to have a long, slow grisly death.

He's just too smug. And ridiculously stupid but can't see it.

Hideous character.

sally in coronation st gives me rage, possibly one of the most pathetic characters of all

I hate "Fatboy" and "Tamwar"...Tamwar isn't even a Muslim name....I don't think it's a name at all. He's like a piece of dead wood drifting along with a horrible monotonous tone of voice. I don't understand his point in the whole programme. He's not even funny.

Fatboy is just annoying for obvious reasons.

I have too much time on my hands watching EE. <ashamed>

I can't stand Sally and Gail from Corrie either. It's Gail's chin (or lack of) and mouth and Sally's accent.
I don't like Debbie from Emmerdale either. She's so vile and rude I can't understand why everyone runs around after her.

I don't watch telly soaps but I've been listening to The Archers since childhood and find all the characters intensely irritating, some I outright detest.

Can't stop now tho...

valiumredhead Thu 24-Oct-13 15:02:09

Ive had to stop watching EE completely, all the characters were annoying me!

BigOrangePumpkin Thu 24-Oct-13 15:04:00

I actually had to stop watching Hollyoaks due because of Mercedes.

Tracey Barlow is such a vicious, manipulative, lying, spiteful convicted murderer. Deirdre is as blind as Sharon from EE when it comes to being blinded by parental love. I know Our Chesneys a good lad but I can't stand his face, his nose seems to fill the screen whenever he's in a scene. I hate Samantha Janus' character in Mount Pleasant, another manipulative, scheming lying bitch. Ryan from Corries fit but shit. I'm not keen on that whiny sister of Leanne's from Corrie and I can't stand Peter Barlow either, his characters loathsome and he looks like an elderly and confused owl.

Some soap characters give me the rage! At the moment it's...

Sharon and Denny from Eastenders and Sienna from Hollyoaks. Especially Sienna though. I loved Nancy and Darren together and hate her from pulling them apart. I also hate Darren for being such an arsehole and abandoning his sick wife.

Olbasoil Thu 24-Oct-13 15:37:55

Oh the Archers.... I don't know who irritates me the most out of....
Helen
Jill
Brenda
Joe
Elizabeth .

Emmerdale has to be ...
Betty Eggleton
Priya.
Dom
Katie
Victoria .

Don't watch the others much thank goodness

UncleT Thu 24-Oct-13 16:02:06

There are too many irritating soap characters to list, but I still can't help watching some of them (Corrie and Eastenders primarily).

Honourable mentions for major irritation go to the following, off the top of my head and without too much thought:

Kat in EE (horrible over-acting and very annoying speech)
Sharon in EE (vile person and with that nasty brat of a son)
Norris in CS (quite funny sometimes, but I'd love to smack his face)
Ronnie in EE (terrible, whiney acting)
Gail in CS (where IS her chin?? Is she ET's mother?)
Carl in EE (what a nasty piece of work!)

There are many others, but these few came straight to mind.

SamU2 Thu 24-Oct-13 16:16:42

Can't stand

Gail- Corrie
Sharon in EE has been ruined
Gormless Chesney in Corrie
Michelle Connor is a whinge bag
Alice and her dopey ways in EE
Rita Mrs Dogoody in Corrie
Dexter in EE, as well and the dad
Abbey in EE is quite sweet but what is with her baby voice?

Fakebook Thu 24-Oct-13 16:46:14

I need to stop watching EE too. It's more habit now than anything else. I certainly don't enjoy it anymore.

Who needs soaps when you have MN anyway. grin.

UncleT Thu 24-Oct-13 16:52:24

EE is definitely not what it used to be. I get so sick of all the quasi-touchy-feely crap, rather than actually having some decent stories with some action and decent cliff-hangers.

Corrie is where it's at these days.

LineRunner Thu 24-Oct-13 16:57:58

I am not enamoured of Liz McDonald's return. Even though she's nearly learned her lines.

GoldenGytha Thu 24-Oct-13 16:59:20

I can't stand whiney, whingey Laurel in Emmerdale,
Cain in Emmerdale,
Rhona In Emmerdale

David and Gail in Corrie,
Nick in Corrie,
Michelle in Corrie,

And not so much the characters, but far too much of the gangster stuff in River City.

ajandjjmum Thu 24-Oct-13 17:00:49

I am sure 'Kirsty' won't win Strictly, because too many people identify her with the husband beater on Corrie. That's why they're coming out with this PR hype about her bad back, as they know she's good, but she hasn't got the public behind her. My theory!!! grin

Maybe she could appear in the next episode her her Strictly get-up, and ask Tyrone for forgiveness, so that she can move on.

Tracey is just vile and I hate her - although some of her lines are excellent. I just don't believe that anyone could be that awful. Why Liz didn't bar her from the Rovers yesterday I don't know.

Note to self - get a life!

FeckOffCupofBatBlood Thu 24-Oct-13 17:12:54

Ken Barlow really pissed me off, smug, sanctimonious, hypocritical old bastard. I hope he doesn't come back from Germany/Canada/Timbuktu/wherever it is he's meant to be.

KCumberSandwich Thu 24-Oct-13 18:15:32

Kirsty in eastenders bugs the shit out of me- brush your hair and deflate your ridiculous top lip ffs.

Nancy66 Thu 24-Oct-13 18:18:20

Alfie Moon fucks me right off. Annoying bastard.

Tracy n Corrie is horrible too. And her hair always looks greasy

CaptainSweatPants Thu 24-Oct-13 18:18:54

Is Emily still in corrie?
Her self righteousness used to pee me off

Nancy66 Thu 24-Oct-13 18:21:53

yes she's still in it although she only gets about one line every six weeks
