Coronation Street fans were NOT happy with Kate Connor's 'diabolical' exit
Coronation Street fans said goodbye to Kate Connor last night [September 13] as Faye Brookes' final scenes on the soap aired.
And fans were not impressed with the character's "diabolical" exit, with many feelings the actress deserved better.
Faye announced earlier this year that she would be leaving Corrie, after four years on the soap - although the door has been left open for her to return, if she wants to.
Kate bid farewell to her family and friends at the Rover's Return last night, before flying off to Singapore to travel the world.
In teary-eyed scenes, Johnny raised a toast to his "beautiful daughter" - in what would turn out to be Faye's last on-screen appearance, as Kate wasn't shown actually leaving Weatherfield.
And they definitely weren't impressed that she didn't even get the final scene in the hour-long episode.
Diabolical. Kate should've been seen in a taxi - at the very least - going away. This was @Faye_Brookes' exit. Especially after her huge groundbreaking storyline with @BhavnaLimbachia. Ali is still going to be there on Monday. Kate isn't. Departees should ALWAYS be last. #Corrie

@Faye_Brookes Didn't even get to see Kate drive off in one of Streetcar's cabs, NOT even a 'Farewell Speech' final Rana mention really babes? After everything she's been through in the past year really NOT much of a exit for her was it? #Corrie #GoodbyeKate ?

Being serious right now but Rana's exit was more respectful than Kate's and they killed Rana on her wedding day and gave her no acceptance from her Mum. That's how shockingly bad Kate's exit was. #corrie #kana

So that’s the exit they give Kate after 4 years? Faye deserves so much better #Corrie

i expected more from kate’s last scenes, that felt like she was just going on a two week holiday, not leaving indefinitely #corrie
