Why People Have A Problem With Kylie’s Corrie Death

Well. Friday’s Coronation Street was dramatic, wasn’t it?

Kylie Platt was killed off in an incredibly emotional episode, being stabbed in the heart by thug Clayton.

She’d just announced that she and husband David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) were moving to Barbados, and was returning from buying champagne in the Rovers to celebrate.

But her bubble was burst after Clayton – an associate of her ex Callum Logan – attacked Gemma Winter (Dolly-Rose Campbell), leaving her unconscious on the cobbles.

Kylie (Paula Lane) rushed to help her – before Clayton (Callum Harrison) ended up turning on her.



Realising what had just happened, David rushed to her side, telling her she was the ‘bravest person he had ever met’ as he cradled her in his arms. And then she was gone *sob*.

Paula – who’s played Kylie since 2010 – had previously opened up about her character’s exit, saying: ‘I’m not just saying this because I’m involved, but I don’t think I’ve ever read an ending like it.

‘It’s almost not Corrie, if you know what I mean, it’s very different. It’s something that’s never been done in soap before and I think the audience are going to get a real sense of shock and surprise.’



That they did. But some people thought the scenes were a little too shocking.

Tweets included: ‘Bit much before watershed, now got a six year old asking questions! #corrie [sic],’ and: ‘Bang out of order showing such violence before watershed #corrie.’



However, others had a different opinion. One viewer wrote: ‘Mum told me to tell ’em that, “Life doesn’t happen before the watershed! Deal with it!” What a legend. #Corrie.’

Another wrote: ‘Corrie was brilliant last night forget about watershed.’
