*** And of course let's not forget the original ED married couple, the Ogdens, Stan and Hilda, even 25+ years after his [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim demise]] and her [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere exit.]] In spite of the fact that many fans and even Corrie producers want her to return, her actress has refused every time due to her disapproval of the quality of the show in its [[SeasonalRot recent years.]]

** Some people have argued this with Simon Barlow's actor Alex Bain. Although Bain's race has never been publicly disclosed, some viewers believe that Simon has noticeably dark skin for a child fathered by a Caucasian couple.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Nick Tilsley, especially during the whole "Who's the Daddy?" storyline and its aftermath. As unfortunate as it is to have lasting brain damage, it was still his own fault ''for sleeping with his brother's wife on Christmas.'' He should have known by now who his brother was, what, if pushed far enough, he was capable of and should have just manned up and confess to David and Leanne in the first place. Plus, in addition to being an unsympathetic character already, it may come off as a form of LaserGuidedKarma for sleeping with his then-best friend's wife in a year earlier while said ex-best friend was [[{{Irony}} recovering from serious injuries he had sustained.]] It's not helped by the fact that after the accident, Nick (falsely) claimed that his brother David had tried to kill him, resulting in David being ostracized from his family, kicked out of his own home, denied access to his children and treated like a complete monster on par with Richard Hillman.

* StrictlyFormula: The stories can become a bit repetitive but the only difference being that the problem is held by a different character but there is some noticeable repetitiveness such as the pub being set on fire whenever there is a new owner. A villain that isn't arrested for their crimes and sent to jail then they are killed off by either murder or by accident or by a fortunate chance of leaving the street and never intending to return.

* {{Narm}}: When Izzy took a strong form of cannabis in 2016 and was freaking out and having hallucinations because of it was obviously meant to be serious and scary but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGe470HOLPU came across as]] hilarious and ''badly''-acted instead.
