Is it just me or is the new guy in Coronation street an appalling actor? I have to look away when he's on.

itchyandscratchy Thu 29-Oct-09 21:34:20

haven't seen tonight's yet- have recorded it. But the first day he was in it dh and I said exactly the same. DIRE. didn't seem to know what accent he wanted to use. hope he's not in it for long

Far too breathy. Look out for the line 'can you blame me? She's gorgeous.'

Haven't seen but is this the guy who's gonna walk in on Michelle Connor in the shower in a tacky attempt to show off her new frontal space hoppers?

And they're bringing Nick Tilsley back but rather than Adam Rickett it's gonna be the guy who played Conrad in Footballers Wives who is about a decade too old [ghmm].

He's gonna get it on with Tina.

Will Carla come back again? I love Carla!

Lilyloooohhhh Fri 30-Oct-09 21:14:23

He is awful

Twointhebush Fri 30-Oct-09 21:14:47

I like Carla too. And I thought the writers were leaving the door open for Tony to come back. Whatserface has become a bit of a slapper of late too.

kittya Fri 30-Oct-09 23:22:27

Is Tony going to die? whos whatsherface? the girl in the shop or behind the bar? That guy is a crap actor, I cringe whenever he comes on

Michelle. I like her character though. My DH has also become addicted to Corrie since I gave birth. These long winter nights simply fly by in our house.

kittya Sun 01-Nov-09 18:58:31

Its the best. I dont watch any of the others, I hate Eastenders.

The thing is, he sexually assaulted Michelle and she still went out on a date with him.

If some stange man came up to me and kissed me, I'd scream and report him to the police for molestation, not go off on a date with him. It's a really stupid storyline.

kiwibella Mon 02-Nov-09 21:25:31

it's awful... so many crap storylines atm but still so damn addictive! I blame it on the lazy wintery evenings grin.

Tony made me shiver tonight... ugh, a gentleman's silence agreement.

He's going to be a horrible stalker though, surely. No women really like men this do they. Michelle is meant to be a bit more savvy.

Monadami Mon 02-Nov-09 22:09:26

He's very weird, told Michelle he loves her when they barely know each other and how loose is she to tupp him on the first date, especially when she professed not to be interested.

Mmmm imagine shagging someone when your son is in bed and you live in a tiny flat. Poor Roy, whats he going to do now?

yada Tue 03-Nov-09 19:46:59

michelle really does get the crap storylines, both her brothers have been bunked of, her bro in law is a murderer and her son was switched at birth but she seems to have forgotten all about that now hmm

bananaskins Tue 03-Nov-09 22:17:10

Michelle is STILL wearing that tiny black jacket - did anyone else notice her struggling to get it round her enormous new hooters the other night?

Ivykaty44 Tue 03-Nov-09 22:19:33

is tony going to die?

BettyTurnip Tue 03-Nov-09 22:46:36

grinbananaskins - they are huge aren't they? I think Kym Marsh has made a big mistake tbh, prior to the op all those tight tops showed off her fab figure...now she's got the "enormous new hooters" she justs looks really tarty. Can't abide her character now either - rather loud-mouthed and common.

<purses lips and peers over pince-nez>

Don't think Tony's going to die, but Roy Cropper should be worried.

Monadami Wed 04-Nov-09 00:30:16

Oh yes, forgot about the stupid swapped at birth storyline and don't really remember the outcome. Her boy really needs to sort his big barnet out.

yada Wed 04-Nov-09 15:38:52

was there a outcome to the switched at birth story?

i think they realised how crap it was and just forgot to carry it on.

Iklboo Wed 04-Nov-09 15:45:48

Need character name so I can google him cos I don't watch corrie

bananaskins Wed 04-Nov-09 17:55:32

I don't remember what happened with the swapped son, was he called Alex? I think maybe they let the story die a merciful death due to it being both tedious and unbelievable.

I once saw Kym Marsh in real life, just passed her in the street - very very pretty girl. I hope the caked-in-slap look is just one she's adopted for this part, because at the moment she looks like a rival to Becky.

Cobblers Wed 04-Nov-09 20:57:21

Is Sally going to do a breast cancer storyline?

BettyTurnip Wed 04-Nov-09 23:04:50

Iklboo - character is called Jake.

Cobblers - apparently so.
