Coronation Street news: The Chase star Jenny Ryan hits out at soap over Seb’s ‘heartbreaking’ death

The harrowing scenes were too much for Jenny

News of Seb’s death on Coronation Street last night (May 7) hit The Chase star Jenny Ryan hard.

So hard, in fact, that she’s taken to Twitter to hit out at soap bosses for killing him off.

Like millions of others, quizmaster and X Factor star Jenny was left broken hearted when Seb died from the horror attack by Corey Brent’s gang.

Coronation Street news: So what did Jenny say about Seb?

Shortly after the scenes aired, Jenny tweeted: “Why would you do this, #Corrie? Heartbreaking stuff.”

She added: “Absolutely devastated. Abi and Nina have already lost so much. Roy will come through for both as ever, but at what cost? Too cruel, too cruel.”

Jenny added that he was “too young” and said she couldn’t “bear watching part two”.

And Jenny wasn’t alone.

In Wednesday’s double bill of Corrie (May 5) Seb and Nina were viciously attacked by Corey Brent, Kelly Neelan and their friends.

The couple were taken to hospital.

Whilst Nina went in for surgery, Seb was taken for a series of tests.

In last night’s episodes of the soap, a nurse explained to Abi that Seb’s brain stem tests were inconclusive so they repeated them.

Why would you do this, #Corrie? Heartbreaking stuff.

Meanwhile Nina remembered seeing Corey before the attack, but couldn’t remember who attacked her.

Later, the nurse came back and told Abi that Seb failed the brain stem tests. His body has shut down, his heart stopped and he had died.

However, in harrowing scenes Abi was told the news and she broke down – falling to the floor screaming in agony for her lost son.

Soon Kevin made a call to Seb’s former landlady and friend Eileen to tell her the devastating news.

However, Roy had to break the news to Seb’s girlfriend Nina that he had died and she broke down.
