Soap characters you want to smack!

    There are always annoying characters or vilains on soaps which are there to provide storylines and we're not supposed to like every character - that's what makes it more interesting.

    But sometimes a character develops to be so annoying that they'd nearly make you stop watching the show.

    For me it's David Platt - a former winner of Best Vilain at the soap awards but lately has turned into the most spoiled, selfish, immature, smug and infuriating brat. I just cannot stand to watch him anymore. Everytime he get's brought down to earth he resurfaces more smug than before - aaaaaaahhhhhhh

    (Yes, I know it's not real but for the purpose of this topic.....)

    Who else would make you switch over?

    I want to smack Ian Beale from Eastenders. He's an ugly, skinny, evil, moaning, money grabbing miser who makes his whole family truly unhappy. That leather jacket and the bluetooth in every episode annoys me to the core.

    David Platt, Coronation Street, the guy's a [word removed] :mad:


  • Registered Users Posts: 62 ✭✭Mary D


    I agree with the David Prat one. I also can't stand the one in fair city, Heather. She has about 3 expressions and uses them for every situation. She always looks stunned by what the other actors have just said to her, worst actress ever.

    Not only that, but what about Dev's uncle? And why, when he met the uncle, did Dev have to start talking like Peter Sellers?

    That wanker William from Fair City a while ago! :pac:

    I'd actually nearly give him a smack if i saw him in the street - although i know he doesn't exist....as in his character....i'm sure he's very nice in real life...ahem...:D His voice CREEPS me out big time


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,190 ✭✭✭jos28


    Any member of the Platt family. Probably hit Gail first, especially when she does that stupid lovey dovey look. Creepy !
    Give Dev a slap too, the Coronation St writers have turned him into a panto dame.

    Rosie Webster in Corrie. She really bugs me with her piercing mad looking eyes and her total diva attitude. And what really gets me is the fact that her parents don't see anything wrong with her and how she behaves.

    I once saw an interview with the actress that plays her and she is basically the same in real life - all pouty and 'look at me'.........scary!

    Heather in Eastenders... I'm all for putting "comedy" into soap opera's, but lets please keep it in some way realistic people!! Her clothes, the fact that she acts like a 6 year old etc etc :mad:


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 458 ✭✭ohanloj3


    Oh my God there are so many characters in all the soaps that drive me crazy

    Eastenders; Ian, The Massuads (or however you spell it), Archie, the winger-can't remember her name but shes Ronnie's daughter

    Coronation Street; Gail, Dev, his uncle and girlfriend, that new hairdresser, Norris and his girlfriend

    The new hairdresser in Corrie is an unbelievable pain alright. She's so desperate and gobby. As for Eastenders, don't know her first name but Massuads wife- such A Little Mrs. Perfect wannabe-don't know how her husband has put up with her nit picking and pedantic ways for this long.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,891 ✭✭✭Stephen P


    Has to be Gail in Corrie for me too, the last time I saw a mouth like that it had a hook in it.
    Ali (sp?) from Fair City bugs the sh!t out of me. Her voice is irritating and she can't act for sh!t!

    +1


    Ronnie, Roxy and Danielle in Eastenders.


    Una, Ali, Leos new love interest, Turlough in Fair City.


    Belle in H&A really really annoys me.

    1. Ken fcukin' Barlow - I'd love to kick him in the face....what an assh*le..and your one in the boat-what a boring individual..drown the two of them, that's what I say:mad:
    2. Gail is just asking for a good hard slap too...with all her compulsive blinking and peeping up through her fringe at your man, trying to be all flirty:rolleyes:.
    3. Sally, words fail me...I just can't bear her:(.


  • Registered Users Posts: 296 ✭✭BeansMeansHynes


    Oh god! Where to start.

    I have given up watching Corrie cos I dislike so many of the characters

    Gail Platt and the stupid faces she makes

    Norris, Rita and Emily. They drive me crazy.

    Sally Webster.......

    Liz behind the bar and thank god they got rid of Vernon! He drove me demented.

    Ken & Deirdre Barlow - Eugh that womans neck

    Hmmmm I could be here for a while talking about Corrie

    The only one I despise in Fair City is that Annette the Solicitor one! :mad:

    Eastenders: I think the only one I dislike is Heather. She is always moaning and complaining.

    I feel sorry for Billy. Is he ever going to be happy in it?


  • Registered Users Posts: 690 ✭✭✭Lorrs33


    Coronation Street - Gail, Tony, Michelle, Liz, Deirdre, Janice.

    Eastenders - Ronnie, Archie, Peggy, Heather, MAX (god that guy is irritating!), his daughter who can't sing, not Lauren, the other one, the Masoods, Ian.

    Emmerdale - Lexi, Aaron, VICTORIA (whiney effer!), Nicola (used to love her), Diane, Andy, the Wyldes, PADDY (no way could he get someone like Chas).

    I think the best question is, who would I NOT hit, the list is a lot shorter :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,423 ✭✭✭tinkerbell


    Lol, I just watch Corrie - Gail (those batting eyelashes, aaargh!!)

    David drives me mad too but he's amusing!

    Ken acting the whole playa these days with his bit on the side.

    Who really bugs me though? That idiot who is Kirk's gf, she does my head in!! Aargh such a busy-body!!

    Oh I forgot Deirdre and Norris! Urgh!

    One of my favs is Blanche, she's hilarious :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 146 ✭✭tesslab


    Corrie has so many i cant watch it without feeling physically ill. Ken & deirdre should be shot in the face. And whats the deal with Bill! Why is he there??
    I would happily dance on your one Pam's head. And emily and the rest of the coffin dodgers should be long gone.
    Eastenders most annoying is ian beales son! Such a lick a**e! UGH! :mad: Bianca is so ugly she makes me sick. and she is wearing those grey leopard print jeans and spaceman puffy jacket for bout 10 months now. Do they need to be surgically removed at this point??:confused:
