Coronation Street villain Pat Phelan has reigned over the cobbles for the last few years… but it seems an EastEnders star could be set to sort him out. It’s been a dramatic week for Coronation Street fans, who were tantalisingly teased by show bosses into thinking the nasty Phelan could be facing his comeuppance. Tim Metcalfe recorded Phelan confessing to his huge fraud scam on the taxi radio, not knowing wife Eileen was listening.
But Eileen chose to forgive her husband, telling Tim that “he doesn’t seem like such a bad man”. Eileen’s repeated inaction has seen Coronation Street fans chip in on Twitter, calling for one particular soap bruiser to intervene and kick Phelan out the Street for good. Yep, it seems the EastEnders cast hard man Phil Mitchell is the only person who can put a stop to Phelan’s reign of terror in the cobbles, after he so expertly ousted Aidan Maguire from Albert Square.
And Phil’s brutish nature have seen fans take to Twitter to call for him to swap Walford for Weatherfield and run Phelan out of town. “Can they send Phil Mitchell over to Coronation Street to get rid of Phelan once and for all?” queried one fan. A second urged: “Good on you Phil Mitchell. Get yourself up North to the cobbles and sort Phelan out now.” “Would love EastEnders and Corrie to have a merger and have Phil iron out Phelan,” a third suggested, speaking for a nation. “I wish Phil Mitchell could just pop over to Corrie and sort Pat Phelan out too, I mean, that would just be fab,” a fourth said.
