‘Coronation Street’ Spoilers: Here’s Who’ll To Die In ‘Saddest Scenes Ever’ (But It’s A Bit Underwhelming)

Well... that was unexpected.

Earlier this week, ‘Coronation Street’ star Samia Ghadie teased that she’d been busy filming the “saddest scenes ever”, promising fans that an emotional exit was upcoming for a “well-loved member of the cast”.

Well, the identity if the departing character has reportedly now been revealed, and we’re sorry, but the truth is a little underwhelming, as it’s reportedly her character Maria’s pet dog, Ozzy.

We’ll obviously wait to see how things play out, but we were expecting something a little bigger, to be honest. Not to be morbid, but it seemed as though the death of a (human) Weatherfield favourite was on the cards.

It has to be said that Ozzy has been pretty important to Maria, though, as he used to belong her husband Liam, who was killed in 2008.

There’s no shortage of drama for ‘Corrie’ fans this summer, as a number of storylines, including Maria’s affair with Aidan, are already in full swing.

Elsewhere on t’cobbles, Steve McDonald is in quite the pickle, after impregnating two women, while David Platt is on a quest for revenge, following the murder of his wife Kylie Platt.
