One wrote: “Loved #CoronationStreet tonight. But Ken can’t leave!! @itvcorrie.”
Another echoed: “Bravo #CoronationStreet I’ve laughed, cried and been shocked that Ken Barlow is leaving, certainly is an end of an era! Thank you.”
“Dennis Tanner and Ken Barlow bow out together. Elsie would approve #Corrie @itvcorrie #CoronationStreet,” wrote a third.
A fourth asked: Anyone else disappointed with Ken Barlow’s final goodbye?? #CoronationStreet.”
As Corrie bosses have insisted Bill Roache is not leaving for good, will Ken be back on screen again sooner then fans think?
Coronation Street continues on Monday at 7:30pm on ITV
