For months Moira Dingle has been having an affair with farmhand Nate Robinson behind husband Cain Dingle’s back.

The pair have been sneaking around but they were recently caught out by Moira’s nephew Pete Barton.

Sick of having to share a house with Moira and Cain knowing the truth, he moved out and raised suspicion with Cain’s mother, Faith.

Although things look like they’re coming to an end, viewers have not been happy with the storyline.

An ED viewer wrote: “Too right. It’s getting boring.”

A couple of months ago, Kathy managed to get Rainie painkillers for her ribs, however, Rainie is an addict.

Getting bored of this Rainie drug storyline!

As she left Abi for a moment to take the pills, Stuart caught her.

He threw the pills in the dirt and took Abi home, leaving Rainie searching for them.

But when Rainie got back to Kathy’s, she called the police and once they turned up, she punched Kathy in the face in order to get arrested so she could get away from painkillers.

An ED reader wrote: “I’m sick to death of seeing this storyline, it’s been going on for weeks.”

Another said: “Hate the character, hate the story.”

Viewers have been getting fed up with Amy and Kerry.

Back in August, they accidentally started the fire at the Sharma & Sharma factory which killed Frank.

However as Frank had been sacked from the factory that day, villagers started to assume Frank caused the fire as revenge on his boss Jai for giving him the sack.

But it turned out that he was only in there to collect his belongings – which included an engagement ring for his girlfriend Megan.

Recently his daughter Tracy found out the truth about how the fire started leading to an altercation with the mother and daughter.

Kerry ended up hitting her head and Amy threatened to tell the police how Kerry got her injuries if Tracy told them about the fire.

Tracy decided she was going to tell the police, but when she heard teen Amelia say she couldn’t bear to lose Kerry, who was a mother figure to her, she decided against it.

Viewers are getting sick of the storyline going on and on.
