Coronation Street viewers are furious as "Fat Brenda" quit Street Cars in last night's episode.

Fat Brenda is an unseen character in Coronation Street who occasionally works the switch at the taxi firm.

In last night's episode (May 13 2019), it was obvious business wasn't great for Street Cars.

Things got worse when Fat Brenda handed in her notice over the phone as she was going to join GoLucky, leaving Steve distraught.

Steve wasn't the only one disappointed, as viewers expressed their upset that Brenda had quit.

I can't believe Fat Brenda has turned her back on Street Cars. It's the end of an era.

Although Brenda has not been seen on screen, she has been mentioned many times before.

She was involved in four part spin-off Street Car Stories which revealed Brenda had a daughter named Imogen.

Imogen was involved in the last two episodes named The Switch and The Showdown.

In the third episode, The Switch, Steve oversleeps and is late relieving Brenda from her shift. But when Steve and Lloyd Mullaney arrive they find Imogen in her place as Brenda has won a skiing holiday at Bingo and has gone unannounced.
