Coronation Street fans all have same demand as soap legend quits after six years


Coronation Street fans all have the same demand after one soap legend quit after six years.

Sharon Marshall recently announced the “sad” news that she was leaving her job as a writer over on rival soap Emmerdale after a lengthy stint penning scripts for the Dales-based programme.

The 51-year-old also regularly appeared on shows like This Morning to give the latest soap gossip to fans.

Announcing the news of her moving to pastures new, Sharon explained: “My last Emmerdale is on tonight at 7:30pm.

“Off to writing pastures new now but it’s been an absolute joy and privilege to play in the Dales for six years. I’ll hugely miss the fabulous team.”

Her co-stars, including Bernice Blackstock star Samantha Giles, soon rushed to support her amid the big announcement.

Samantha penned: “You’ll be missed lots of love and luck in your new adventures xxxx.”

Now fans think she would be a perfect fit for the cobbles instead – and that we could soon see her writing dialogue for the likes of Ken Barlow and killer Stephen Reid.

Taking to Reddit, one user said: “So she’s leaving Emmerdale as a writer, please come to Coronation Street!! I really love her work and always felt her passion for soaps over the years so she would have our back as fans!!!”

As another agreed: “Yeah I feel like Corrie could actually be a natural move for her. Although the storylines have been quite similar between both soaps recently anyway.”

Meanwhile, there was also plenty of speculation on Twitter, as one viewer told Sharon: “Sorry to hear you’ve left Emmerdale, always enjoyed your episodes. Will we hear of your next venture very soon? I’m not so secretly hoping there’s cobbles there.”

“Please say you’re going to the cobbles to write some decent episodes @itvcorrie the Stephen story line is terrible #please,” someone else begged.

While a fifth posted: “Can you come and sort Corrie out pls it’s in desperate need of new writers!”

Over on the cobbles, fans are growing increasingly sick of Stephen’s killing spree after he took the lives of Leo and Teddy – though some are still sure Teddy is still alive.

After being whacked over the head with a giant stapler, Teddy’s body was bundled into a roof-box by Stephen and taken for a drive around the Peaks.

When he eventually got the box back, Stephen chucked it in a lake – but fans noticed he was able to easily carry it, where before it had taken four adults to lift.

Could Teddy have woken up and walked away relatively unscathed, only to take Stephen down at a later date?
