Keep Pat Phelan in Coronation Street

This petition had 114 supporters

Pat Phelan (played by Connor McIntyre) has been a regular character in the ITV soap "Coronation Street" since 2013, and during that time he's:

Swindled Owen Armstrong out of payment for work, whilst bankrupt.

Blackmailed Gary Windass and Owen Armstrong after Gary attacked him on CCTV with a large plank of wood.

Slept with Anna Windass in order to settle up Owen Armstrong's debts with him.

Constantly lied to Eileen Grimshaw about his dealings throughout their relationship.

Swindled the residents of Coronation Street out of money with VInny Ashford for new build flats that were never going to exist.

Ensured that Kevin's new pick-up truck was delivered to the wrong address and stole it for money.

Was behind the fire at Kevin's garage.

Hounded Michael Rodwell after he became suspicious of his dealings and watched him die of a heart attack without coming to his aid.

Blackmailed Andy Carver after he wanted to get revenge on Phelan for Michael Rodwell's death.  

Supposedly Killed Andy Carver (not that a body has been found), and married Eileen Grimshaw wearing mud stained shoes.


He's not been a very nice man has he?  However after follwing him on twitter, I tweeted Connor personally to say "I hope that Phelan never gets caught for all of his crimes, it will be a sad day if he ever leaves", and found that myself and a lot of other fans of the soap have a lot of love for not only the character too, but Connor himself who plays the part superbly.  

I know that baddies in TV shows should always get caught out in the end, but I think that Phelan his just a misunderstood character who has a lot of love to give in his life - this perfectly summed up in his reaction to when he found out that Nicola Rubinstein is his daughter after they both did a DNA test.

Please keep Phelan on the cobbles for as long as possible, of he leaves, Coronation Street will not be the same without him.  Likewise not seeing Connor McIntyre on our TV screens will be a dark day for all of us, he is such a lovely man and and superb character actor.  Not to mention his work outside of TV with his art projects.

Please sign this petition, and while he may not stay on Coronation Street as a result, at least we can demonstrate what love we have for him as a person and am actor!
