Corrie fans turn on ‘overused’ Gemma and demand she is axed

Fans are absolutely sick of her on their screens and are switching off

Coronation Street fans have had enough of Gemma Winter being 'overused' in the soap.

The barmaid has been featuring heavily in the show of late and it’s set to continue after it was revealed she is pregnant with Chesney Brown’s baby.

But fans have had enough of her over the top behaviour taking up so much screen time in the nation’s number one soap - and they want her axed.

Posting on Digital Spy forums, frustrated viewers vowed to switch off unless she is axed.

One said: "Personally, I've never liked the character Gemma but Iain's relying so much on Gemma to bring the comedy into the show and is using her all the time, it's made me have strong negative feelings for her.

"I can't stand her now and I've switched off because of her!"

I find her rather vile now - they've over-egged the pudding.

A second said: "Why can't Iain bring in comedy into every day life for the rest of the characters?

"He needs to be better at rotating the characters on screen."

A third said: "I did quite like her - but for the last year or so it's been Gemma, Gemma and more Gemma..... they make her more disgusting with her habits - eating, personal grooming, attitude to housework and expect us to like her?

"I find her rather vile now - they've over-egged the pudding."

Another said: "Gemma is a background character who has been wrongly pushed into leading status.

"Also, she was far more convincing when she was playing the menacing role as one of Callum’s goons.

"She was realistic in that but the comedy shtick doesn’t suit her at all, mainly because anyone in real life who would act like her would be given a wide berth by everyone."

A fifth agreed and added: "If they continue with these Gemma stories I for one will be switching off, ridiculous."
