Coronation Street fans heartbroken by Sinead's emotional cancer scenes
Coronation Street fans were left in tears after watching Sinead Tinker’s heartbreaking cancer scenes in Wednesday’s episode
Sinead, played by Katie McGlynn, was seen confronting her husband, Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) after they had decided she should undergo one last round of chemotherapy to try and buy her more time.
She told him: ‘Seems to me like you’re the one making all the big decisions about my life. Well, what’s left of it.’
Sinead added to Daniel that she will try the final round of chemo, but if she is still feeling as ill as she is now, she will stop the treatment, leaving him devastated.
She later said: ‘That’s the one thing they don’t tell you about cancer, how lonely it is’, and said she wouldn’t blame Daniel if he wanted to walk away.
‘I don’t want you to look back on our last days together and only remember the bad times,’ she continued as he apologised for ‘letting her down’, and she agreed this round of chemo would be the last.
Viewers were left in tears at the emotional scenes, tweeting: ‘My heart breaks for Sinead and Daniel’ and ‘Watching coronation street balling [sic] my eyes on a Wednesday night’.
Fans of the show have seen Sinead battle cervical cancer, before receiving the devastating news that she had only months left to live after the cancer returned and spread.
Coronation Street’s producers recently confirmed that the cancer plotline would end in Sinead’s death, with Katie McGlynn’s final scenes set to air next month.
Katie had previously revealed to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning that she didn’t want to give the character a happy ending in order to be true to the suffering of many women affected by cancer.
She explained: ‘I had a meeting with Kate [Oates] and said, “I think I might want to leave, I’ve been there for so long and I’ve not had that big of a story”.
‘They told me this storyline and I thought this is amazing, please do this. I know it sounds very sadistic but I wanted her to die because that’s real life and life isn’t a fairytale.
‘Loads of women are dying, so many people are affected by cancer and this storyline triggers so many emotions for so many people because it’s absolutely heartbreaking.’
