I really really hope it's going to be the end of Paul tonight. Sick of his selfish face and his spluttering way of talking. Surely Eileen would want to sell her house now that someone died in it?

Rick the loan-shark again and again. Is there a plausabile explanation to the idiocy of the characters who absolutely refuse to call the cops? I's so moronic I can't stand it.I guess it's so that Tommy (whover is plaing him) can show us more of his massive acting skills. One liners all the time. "I'm skint. Me dad took the moneh" I'm skint. Bah..wake me when it's over.

What a useless, poorly written, lame exit for Terry. Fight scene before the commercial break then, "Oh, I should help my father.... we will all be better off, it's OK that you are a scum dad, I'll give you the money anyway...." Are the writers all "on" something? If this continues, Corrie will never win the "Best Soap Award"!!!

Yes corrie has lost touch with the real world no one would hand that much money to a dad who doesn't care

Eileen should have at least one friend to tell her she's wasting her time with Paul. You can support a friend by being tough and telling it like it is - but they aren't. But if the writers want them to live happily ever after, that's fine with me as long as they do it in a town far, far away.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who wonders why Tommeh doesn't simply call the cops when he is being threatened with menaces by a gangster to whom he doesn't even owe money. Can he really be that dense?

And now he has persuaded Tina not to report Dad Terreh to the police for assault and grievous bodily harm. Yeah, right.

I do realise that one sometimes requires the willing suspension of disbelief, but this just taking the piss.

And yes, I do know that Paul is grieving for the loss of his wife, but even so, being such an arse in the way he is behaving makes you wonder why Eileen doesn't just tell him to sling his 'ook.

I know that sometimes life isn't always happy but come on, at least make some of the people happy on Corrie part of the time. There are some who always get into happy relationships but then are some would deserve one for a change, don't get one.

It wasn't too long ago that Paul left Lesley on her own (when she couldn't remember their wedding pics) and Eileen came home to find her crying in the corner and Paul holed up in Roy's cafe. Stop being such a hypocrite Paul!

Good riddance to Paul! Sadly, this seems to also mean the end of Eileen. Despite popular belief, there are lots of women who never seem to get to have a happy relationship. However, this storyline was plain old crap.

The scenes with Eileen and Paul nearly did my head in. His acting for one thing, but more than that what are TPTB thinking of with the most awful whining “I love Lesley, she is the love of my life” dialogue and in the next breath “I’m seeing a solicitor, please marry me Eileen”. I was unaware that they were running Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia at the same time. Coronation Street has been pretty awful in the past couple of years but I think this is the all time pits. Has Paul left for good....? Because to tell you the truth, towards the end I was pressing the mute button every time he came on it really was that bad!!!
