Bring Coronation Street into line immediately. The soap itself wants putting back to two episodes a week and the cast should consist of 25-35 characters at all times. sign now

We the undersigned request that Coronation Street be overhauled completely.

At this moment in time Coronation Street is in a terrible state and it doesn't look like getting any better any time soon. The programme has more problems than enough.

1. It is on far too much and the number of episodes broadcast a week need cutting back to two.

2. The cast is far too big and needs to be split in two.

3. It needs some of the old bosses, scriptwriters and characters on board again to get it back on track.

4. There are far too many kids in the show.

5. The stupid pantomime storylines and characters are ruining the programme. You do realise Coronation Street is supposed to be a soap opera, not a sitcom. Soap operas are supposed to be serious, but not totally depressing though.

The one thing that annoys me the most though is that two parter on a Monday night. It always ends on a cliffhanger to make damn sure the viewers comeback and it is such a big let down. When they first introduced that two parter on a Monday night, it was only for special occasions, but now it is a regular thing, it has taken its toll on the programme. The storylines are terrible and are just padded out. There is no proper story told and the stories go absolutely nowhere. Even worse on two occasions if I remember rightly, Coronation Street was shown three times in one night, one of which was when Mad Maya blew up all of Dev's shops. ITV have relied on Coronation Street too much in the last ten years and it is now looking a very tired old show.

See below the full cast list in alphabetical order. I have indicated by the side of each character who should be axed, who should be spared, who is leaving and who has already left.
