Teresa Morton - from tramp to triumph?

Is anyone else enjoying Teresa Morton a lot more than they used to do, these days?

She started off badly, trying to poison Sinbad from Brookside, neglecting her kids and blackmailing Lloyd into thinking little Finlay was his. But her recent comedy partnership with Lloyd has turned Teresa around and without the rest of the Morton clan to drag her down, she's comedy gold. Although I have to admit I'm a little uneasy that some of the comedy stems from the fact Teresa's an alcoholic - and that can never be good.

Theresa's an alky? What about the rest of the Corrie folks that seem to spend EVERYDAY at the Rover's...alcohol flows underneath the Cobbles...

I always enjoyed Teresa, she was horrible but the actress is soooo good! As for the alcoholic.. I hope they scale that back a bit. If she really does stop drinking she won't be nearly as good/bad. My prediction, she won't be able to knock the drinking on the head and in the end Lloyd will chuck her out. Tough love.

She really is fantastic. She's a likeable Cilla Battersby - a rough as hell old slapper with a wicked tongue. The actress who plays her is fantastic. I was so glad when they kept her instead of kicking her out with the rest of the Family of Sinbad. I'd just like her to get her own place, as shacking up with Lloyd can't be forever. Dev should kick Michelle out of the flat over the kebab shop and stick her in there.

I wasn't sure about Teresa to start with, especially as her clan have all left but she has really become a character in her own right.

Yes I like Teresa as well, but hope she doesn't lose too much of her nasty streak! I like her banter with Liz, and her relationship with Lloyd is brilliant.

I think she's hilarious!

She's great! Best addition to Corrie in a while. The neighborhood needs someone who's got a clear-eye to the goings-on just because she herself is an outsider.

I'd like to see her give it to Liz, the old slapper.

I like Theresa better now she seems to have got a proper story. The character seemed a bit pointless when she was first brought back. I love the way she gives it to Liz, she so deserves it the way Liz treats people. Her hair didnt look any different after coming out of Audrey's time warped salon though!

I like her but I wish they hadn't got rid of the rest of the family

Always loved her as Karen Henthorn is an effortless character actress. If she seemed not to work so well when she first returned it was simply because the writers weren't ready for yer and were not doing her character justice. ANY character can work well if they write for them (apart from that brother of Eddie Windass, obviously)

I've always enjoyed Theresa as well. I loved seeing her getting her hair done by Audrey in the salon. She's really "moving on up...to the east side..."
