Corrie cast Liz and Jim's 'dead' daughter


As we know now, Liz and Jim's 'dead' daughter Katie isn't dead at all and is returning to Coronation Street as a 28 year old.

Yes, I know.  But what can we do? Nowt. So if we want to continue watching Corrie (and we do) then we just suck it up and go with it. So that's exactly what we're going to do. It is, after all, not real. Isn't it?

The Sun now reports that Australian actress Hannah Ellis-Ryan has been cast to play Katie McDonald in Coronation Street.

Katie, you might remember if you're old enough, died at just one old day in hospital.  Why is she now "coming back"?

We'll have to wait and see just what's really going on.

Horrible, disrespectful story line. Not looking forward to this at all

The baby switch story line did not work with Michelle and her two sons so why try it again?

Tilly Flop said...

So it's actually happening then? I was hoping it was a bad dream. I really can't see how this will pan out. Does anyone actually like the thought of this storyline? I know I certainly don't

Two baby switches on one street. Leanne growing up without ever knowing about half-sister Eva. Norris and Ramsey. Keep retconning and pretty soon we’ll have Pat Phelan’s even eviler twin. ����‍♀️

The nonsense at the end: Facepalm, female white brunette

No, it's not real and that's more or less what the story liners are saying. At least for these fantastical stories. Then when they do an 'issue', it's really real and we have to be pay attention. The traditional mix of dark and light in Corrie has been replaced by distressing and silly. Clever stuff, they might have managed both with this storyline.

Is this some sort of alternate universe? I quit watching "Dallas" because of the ever-more ridiculous storylines. Are the Corrie powers-that-be not afraid of the same thing happening here? 'Struth!

So is this Jims way of getting revenge on his family by paying an Australian woman to say she's Katie.

Eryn Clarke said...

And just who is going to be her love interest? Adam or Ali??

I'm sorry to be a one note commenter, but why does this actress look so much like Kate Connor? Ancestry.com would show that people on the street belong to a very small gene pool:)

“Deliverance” watch the film and you will understand.

Oh God I hoped this was a joke!

Rebecca said...

I was really hoping the rumour wasn't true. I've started fast forwarding through the stories I don't like again, this looks like more to fast forward through.

Well I assume there was a funeral for the baby so who exactly did they bury?

This is just ridiculous.

njblas said...

I can only hope Anonymous is correct and this whole hideous storyline turns out to be a fabrication of Jim's as some sort of revenge against his family...

Louby said...

Nora, you're right. We either stop watching or we put up with it. I will definitely be doing the latter because apart from this Corrie has improved greatly just recently in my opinion.

I still think it's really stupid though.

Sharon Boothroyd said...

Really, really silly.
Why are they asking us to suspend our belief with this?
The baby swap storyline with Michelle was absurd. There's been no recent coverage of the other mum with Michelle's two sons about either, has there?
Yes, this new actress looks like Kate Connor, but to me, Kayla's mum looks like Jenny Connor.
So they'll be a Kate and a Katie. Mind you, there's a Beth and Bethany so...

oh, puhlease!
don't do this! there's no way to make this story line even slightly believable.
please please please please don't!
