Groan how much longer is this Paul business gonna be dragged out? He should have just stayed in Yorkshire.

I'm assuming this boring 'Paul' story is a filler for the storylines that couldn't take place due to Ken and Kevin's absences. I see Stephanie Cole is poorly and has had to leave for a while which must've also disrupted filming / storylines of Hayleys demise. And then there's Chris Fountains 'you tube ' stuff. I'm sure TPTB are under a lot of stress to cover all these problems.

Its not a filler for Ken and Kevin's absences for goodness sake. Why do people have to keep using this? Paul isn't being dragged out, the reason he never stayed in Yorkshire because these scenes would of been filmed under Phil Collinson, and Stuart Blackburn axed him and the actor would of still been under contract to appear until later this year. They cannot just write someone out. That's why he remained after that.

Apparently every story is a filler for Ken, like he really makes that much of an appearance, same with Kevin. Its like 6 months since Kevin last appeared, but apparently they are trying to fill his shoes.

Hey that is why we never see Tyrone anymore....he is covering at the garage for Kev! lol
If we all close our eyes...and count to three...and yell "Shut up whinging Eileen!" Do you think she would shut up for a change? ;-)

I, for one am not missing neither Kevin or Ken. The actors they have now are far more talented. Bill R rode the Corrie gravy train for years which is very clever of him because he's not a very good actor. Neither is Michael LV for that matter.
