I cant say they will be missed - all rubbish characters
I actually don't even know who they are.....and i watch Corrie......definitely didn't make an impact!
Hmm, it's unfortunate for the actors but I suppose sometimes characters come into the show and don't seem to be going anywhere - but surely that's down to their storylines??
Paula Carp I can understand as she clearly just came in for the whole story about her daughter (can't remember her name just now). Mary is quite a boring character but I don't think we've had enough of Poppy to judge really - she never really had any story lines of her own. I think she's got potential to be a good character. Like we don't really know anything about her - she could have some dark secret lurking
ya I actually though there was going to be something between herself and Lloyd and then it would all kick off with her and Liz... they really didn't give her a chance at all did they
'Coronation Street' favourite Sunita Alahan is reportedly returning to the show after three years - with a glamorous new look.
Actress Shobna Gulati, who plays Sunita, has gone from brunette to blonde, and the Daily Mirror reports that her comeback is scheduled for later this year.
On her return Sunita is expected to make life very uncomfortable for her cheating ex-husband Dev (Jimmi Harkishin).
Sunita left Weatherfield in February 2006 after discovering that Dev had had several children with different women.
Sunita had not long given birth to twins and Dev was heartbroken that they and his wife would no longer be part of his everyday life.
The Mirror quotes a 'Coronation Street' source as saying: "Talks have been going on for some time to finalise a deal acceptable to all those who are involved.
"Sunita was a great character, so to have her back is exciting."
Mary's no loss, though it was funny tonight with her trying to jump poor Norris. Looking forward to seeing Andrew Sachs' arrival...he seems like a sweet little man.
Poppy had potential for an affair with either Lloyd or Dev. Sunita was a nice person, it took me a minute to picture her though...can't imagine the blonde hair suiting her.
Paula I assume, is Julie's mother? I think she's very dull...her face seriously lacks expression.
John Thomson is to become embroiled in a screen love triangle when his character returns to Weatherfield later this year.
The 40-year-old initially signed for three episodes as comedic kids' entertainer Jesse Chadwick.
Following his brief stint, which aired at the end of last year, it was announced in January that he would make a permanent comeback next month.
On returning to the cobbles, Jesse finds himself at the centre of a complicated love triangle between the lady of his affection, Eileen Grimshaw (Sue Cleaver), and her new found half-sister, Julie Carp (Katy Cavanagh).
According to the Daily Star, Julie manages to convince Jesse that she should be his stagehand, prompting her to become a Debbie McGee-style assistant. Their time spent together allegedly results in Jesse dumping Eileen after embarking on an affair with Julie.
A source said: "Eileen is devastated at losing Jesse - especially to Julie. She thought she had finally found a man she could trust."
Another two Coronation Street characters are to be written out of the show, Digital Spy can confirm.
Darryl Morton and Vicki Dankowska - played by Jonathan Dixon and Wanda Opalinska - will bow out of the show later this year owing to "natural story progression".
Meanwhile, Nikki Patel (below), who portrays Dev Alahan's (Jimmi Harkishin) daughter Amber Kalirai, will now appear on an "episodic" basis as opposed to an ongoing contractual one. Her storyline will see Amber leave for university in September and make numerous reappearances thereafter.
However, reports claiming that Andrew Whyment (Kirk Sutherland) it to be written out of the Weatherfield soap are unfounded as he recently signed another contract to remain with the show for at least another year.
A spokeswoman for the soap this afternoon told DS: "Some characters will be leaving Coronation Street later this year as part of natural story progression. Characters have always come and gone in Weatherfield, some stay for years, others pass through. This is not about cost cutting it is about storytelling."
Dixon, 20, joined Corrie in March 2007 and is now the only remaining original member of the Morton family - most of whom were axed last year. Polish actress Opalinska, meanwhile, first appeared on the Street in February 2007 and has mainly served as a background character at local knicker factory Underworld.
Other recent or upcoming storyline-based departures include Sharon Duce (Paula Carp), Sophiya Haque (Poppy Morales), Pattie Clare (Mary Taylor), Edward de Souza (Colin Grimshaw), Ayesha Dharker (Tara Mandal) and Andrew Sachs (Ramsay Clegg).
In March, Philip McGinley was written out of the show as his character Tom Kerrigan had 'run his course'.
Omg! Spoiler alert! I hear that kryten, the cat, rimmer and dave lister are due to make an appearence soon. Apparently kryten is going to go work in the knicker factory.

I dont like Claire as a character or Julia as an actress...
Not looking forward to these storylines, although i'm sure corrie writers will write them perfectly.
There is rumours of Karen McDonald returning
I hope they stay rumours. Wouldn't like to see Karen back on the street, dont see any point to her.
...hmmm...not sure I like Claire and Ashley storyline - doesn't it seem rather pointless? (as I'm presuming she'll sort herself out within no time at all and Ashley and Claire will just go back to being invisible) ...also- the roof connection seems a bit strange given what happened with Casey (...I realise it wasn't technically a roof but near enough).
Jason and Tina get it on next week - David wont be happy
