I watched Corrie for many years but about ten years ago the humour disappeared and was replaced by serious, sometimes unbelievable, story lines. Explosions, fires... It seemed to be emulating Eastenders which I never bothered with. So I lost interest and stopped watching. Now the story lines seem to be worse - that story where some young girl was being used and abused by a man, this male rape now. No thank you! It's bad enough reading about it in the newspapers.
