Coronation Street fans devastated by TWO exits as fan favourite leaves Weatherfield

Coronation Street fans were left devastated last night after the sudden departure of two characters - one of which being a firm fan favourite.

It was a tough week for Evelyn Plummer (played by Maureen Lipman ) on the cobbles after her daughter Cassie (Claire Sweeney) made a shock reappearance.

Tyrone had always believed that his mum was Jackie Dobbs, but discovered in 2018 that he was adopted and connected with grandmother Evelyn.

She had previously told him that his biological mother was dead, however it was revealed this week that Evelyn hadn't actually trusted Cassie to look after him because of her drug habit and the fact that she had abandoned him at a police station.

After spotting her across the street, Evelyn chose to ignore her daughter but was later stopped in her tracks after receiving a call telling her Cassie has been rushed to A&E.

Evelyn later called in at the hospital but found that Cassie had discharged herself. Yet when she arrived home, Evelyn was met by Tyrone who says that someone called Cath had come to see her.

Horrified, Evelyn walked in to see Cassie grinning at her from the sofa and when Tyrone asked how they know each other, Evelyn panicked.

Deciding that she wanted to get her daughter help, Evelyn arranged for a cab to take them both away so Cassie could detox.

Tyrone was left shocked by her very sudden departure - and so were viewers, who flocked to Twitter to share their disappointment.

One tweeted: "This is Evelyn's temporary leaving story. She can't come back soon enough. Lipman's been superb these last few weeks and has been on screen a lot more than usual #Corrie."

Another agreed, writing: "Maureen plays Evelyn so bloody well like i actually have ghost bumps from her acting this week #Corrie."

A third wrote: "Casting Dame Maureen Lipman and Claire Sweeney as Evelyn and Cassie Plummer is genius Incredible scenes for them both this week so excited for more to come #Corrie."

*Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV
