Coronation Street fans frustrated over Angie Appleton’s exit for one big reason

Angie Appleton left the cobbles today along with son George as she looked set to start a new life in South Africa.

But Coronation Street fans were left frustrated with her early black cab exit for one main reason – they felt she had so much more potential as a character.

Initially, Angie had been introduced as Mary’s long-lost son Jude’s wife and the pair clashed at the start.

However viewers began to warm to Angie as the truth about Jude was exposed.

Her relationship with mother-in-law Mary was equally touching to watch as well as her spark with Adam Barlow.
