Corrie fans are still reeling from the death of Becky Macdonald’s half-sister Kylie Platt, with the character’s funeral prompting an outpouring of emotions on Twitter from devastated viewers.
One user wrote: ‘OMG I can’t stop crying’ while another agreed that the scenes were ‘Unbelievably sad’.
A sad farewell
“When Liam was killed in a hit-and-run it was Ozzy who was her main source of comfort,” a Corrie insider told The Sun.
“His absence couldn’t come at a worse time with heartache already on the horizon now she’s tangled up in a love triangle with Aidan Connor and his girlfriend Eva Price.”
“It’s been great fun filming, but this week I’ve been recording some of THE saddest scenes I’ve ever done in my 17 years at Corrie,” she said.
“When I first read the scripts I was in tears so getting to film them has just sent me off. You may need your tissues when they air.
“And we say a sad goodbye to a well-loved member of the cast.”
