Laura told Kelly she has terminal cancer

| Updated:

Coronation Street fans are convinced Laura Neelan is lying about her terminal illness.

Recently Kelly found out her mum Laura was diagnosed with cancer and has months left to live.

She has spent the last few weeks looking after her mum as well as going to school and working at the barbers.

This week, Kelly’s guardians Gary and Maria found out Kelly had been looking after Laura and offered for Laura to move in with them in order to help Kelly out.

After Laura moved in, she told Gary that she wanted to hire a private investigator in order to find her ex-husband, Rick’s money so Kelly has money when she dies.

However Entertainment Daily readers don’t think she’s ill and believe she is faking to get her hands on Rick’s money.

On Entertainment Daily’s Facebook page, one fan wrote about Laura: “I never thought she had anything wrong with her. One thing, she is a good con artist.”

A second wrote: “She is a chancer I think. Nothing wrong with her. Time will tell.”

Another added: “I don’t believe she’s ill.”

A fifth commented: “She’s conning them.”

“Shes lying about having cancer,” added another. “She needs her husband’s money and knows Gary has something to do with it so the only way she can get close enough to find out the truth is say she is dying.”

Fans on Twitter also think Laura is lying about her illness.
