Coronation Street fans threaten to boycott soap as Kellys fate hangs in balance

Coronation Street fans have shared their impatience for Kelly Neelan's sentencing decision and pleaded for 'justice to be served'.

The teen, who is portrayed by Mollie Gibson on the ITV soap, is currently awaiting her official sentencing after being found guilty of Seb Franklin's murder earlier this month and placed in a juvenile detention centre.

Seb's real killer Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) walked away scot-free thanks to his dad and his expert legal team.

Corrie fans on Facebook have since pleaded with the show to "hurry up" and 'see justice served' by squashing Kelly's conviction or giving her a more lenient sentence.

They have also requested that Corey's own sentencing decision be "overturned" and for him to be punished for the crime.

One viewer wrote: "I certainly hope [Kelly goes free].

"She does deserve to get something because she was there…however I don't believe she should get life.

"I hope that Corey's decision is overturned because he is a nasty piece of work."

Another commented: "I just wish they would hurry up and get on with [Kelly being freed and Corey getting sent down].

"Otherwise, it's going to get boring and people will forget why they did this story in the first place."

A third hopeful fan concluded. "She will get free eventually.

"It's a soap they have to see justice served."

Kelly's sentencing decision is due to take place next week.
