Just as a side note, what was the last thing, or even first for that matter, Nicola McLean presented?

I'll bring my post from the Corrie thread.

If I were (for a moment) to take her "concerns" seriously...



I'd tell her to actually parent her child. Soaps have always had adult themes, unsuitable for 7 year olds. You can control what a 7 year old watches on TV.

That said. Kids are mollycoddled far too much and I was watching (and enjoying) the Saskia Duncan murder storyline in EastEnders when I was 9 so... Kids can deal with more mature things better than bloody some grown ups.



The real McLean doesn't stay hidden for long.

TV presenter ? The only thing she'll ever be is a 'Nicola' presenter picking up a few quid for a few moments on various tv shows.

Presenter 'my arse' she always spouts rubbish .

Who died and made her mother Tereasa ? If she is worried about her kids being badly influenced she better sweep her own doorstep before she starts trying to tell others what they should do.

Every time Kate Oates spoke I kept expecting to hear Nicola shouting "Vile" in the background or "Don't you come to her!" when she started on Kate Garraway.

I really can't abide the woman but for once I agree with her. Coronation is horridly morbid and miserable these days and totally lost it's humour. The David Platt rape storyline made me feel really uncomfortable and I switched off. So soon after the paedophile storyline too that was depressing. Bring back Corrie of old I say.

Not the point really. Nicola's whole argument was about it being inappropriate for her 7 year old. Simple answer: Her 7 year old shouldn't be watching anyway. Soaps have told murder and abuse plots for decades. Time for her and all those like her to take responsibility for what they watch on television, and not expect television to parent their children for them.
