Coronation Street fans were left heartbroken after Sinead Tinker found out she only had five months left to live.
The popular character, played by Katie McGlynn, broke down alongside her husband Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) following the devastating news.
And in an emotional monologue at the end of the tragic episode, the star once again won over the hearts of her fans.
Clinging onto her husband with tears in her eyes, Sinead howled: ‘In the end all I’ll be is a story, someone make believe, like the bear from The Bear Hunt.
‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea.’
Smashing up the house, she shouted: ‘I’ve been a good person, it’s not fair, I’ve been a good person why doesn’t that count?
‘I was so full of it, “oh I wont let this define me,” what a joke, that’s all I’ll be, wont I? A joke.’
Daniel tried to comfort his love and wrapped her up in his arms telling her he wants every second they have left together.
‘I’ll have died of cancer, I would have been better drowning in Windermere, getting hit by a bus.
‘Now I’m going to have to spend the next few months dragging this body around while it slowly falls apart.’
Stumbling over her words she questions whether or not she will continued treatment, before telling her hubby: ‘It’s not even the dying, it’s the leaving do you know what I mean?’
After the heart-wrenching scenes aired, fans took to Twitter in tears, as they congratulated the actors on their performance.
‘That episode was utterly heartbreaking. Katie and Rob were exceptional tonight #Corrie,’ one wrote while another added: ‘Aw tonight has been two of the harder @itvcorrie episodes to watch but absolutely incredibly acted #Corrie.’
Someone else said: ‘Oh my heart. What a emotional episode, poor Sinead and Daniel, devastating outstanding performances well written. Well done @itvcorrie.’
The storyline marks the end of Katie’s time on the show, as she recently confirmed that she asked the bosses to kill off Sinead.
She said: ‘Daniel and Sinead are just broken, we just tried to play it with as much realism as we could, they’re both in disbelief.
‘Sinead doesn’t understand she just wants to be a mum to Bertie, she wants to know how long she’s got left.
‘They’re both completely devastated and in shock and all the emotion just comes pouring out.’
