Coronation Street fans in tears as Gail Platt is forced to move out of No8

Coronation Street viewers were left in tears on Monday night after watching Gail Platt (Helen Worth) move out of No8.

She and son David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) packed up their things and said goodbye to their home, after initially being hopeful they might be able to stay.

And as Gail gave one final look at her home of many years, viewers couldn't cope and rushed to Twitter to share their own sadness.

One said: "Got choked when the Platts were saying bye to No8."

Another tweeted: "Gail is so good when she gets something serious to do. She can really break your heart."

A third wrote: "Seeing the Platts' house all empty is making me [crying emoji]."

Someone else said: "Aww it was so sad seeing the Platts leaving their home."

A fifth added: "Nah Gail crying is killing me."

"Gail Platt is a national treasure [crying emoji]," someone else said.

While others wished Gail and David a sad farewell.

After news spread around the street that other people who had sold to Ray Crosby (Mark Frost) weren't having to move due to his money issues, David and Gail were hopeful.

However when David went to speak to Ray and find out more, Ray reminded him that he already owned No8, and that they were just renting it from him.

Gail was left devastated, sitting on a packed up cardboard box in the middle of the empty living room.

She began crying, telling David: "I can't help it, this is our home. I want to stay here the way we were."

The fan-favourite then asked David if they would still see each other now that they weren't living together.

Gail would be moving in with her other son Nick Tilsley (Ben Price).

And David assured her they would, joking: "Yeah of course we will – our place doesn't even have a washing machine."
