Coronation Street viewers expressed their disbelief as Andy Carver’s latest escape bid failed and he was thrown back into Pat Phelan’s cellar.

The storyline has been rumbling on for weeks, with evil Pat keeping Andy (Oliver Farnworth) hidden in a basement and all of Andy’s efforts to get away being thwarted.

It's reminiscent of Fair City's recent storyline which saw Katy held captive in a box.  Her ordeal lasted over a year and viewers were mightily fed up by the time it was resolved.

In Monday-night’s double helping of episode of Corrie, Andy made a break for freedom after he was in a car crash with Pat (Connor McIntyre) and the builder was knocked unconscious, but was captured and returned to the cellar.

Corrie fans complained the plot was getting “ridiculous”, “repetitive” and “monotonous”, and many said it was time for Pat to get his comeuppance.

“The Phelan/Andy storyline is now ridiculous to the point of absurdity,” one fan wrote on Twitter.

“Getting bored of this kidnapping storyline now. Getting beyond ridiculous now,” posted another.

Another fed-up fan said: “The whole Pat and Andy storyline is getting boring and repetitive!”

One asked: “Corrie – how on earth do you not realise this Phelan stuff is monotonous.”

Many viewers said it was time to wrap up the storyline and see Phelan brought to justice.

“Ffs when is pat phelan going to be caught????” said one.

“When is pat going to get caught it’s getting boring now,” moaned another.

Another insisted: “There has got to be some karmic justice served up to Pat soon surely?”
