Coronation Street fans are calling for Gemma Oaten to permanently stay on the hit Manchester-based soap in light of Isla Haywood’s dramatic exit.

Gemma made her Corrie debut earlier this monthas Tyrone Dobbs’ new interest but things came to a sour end for the pair after Isla’s husband appeared.

Things appeared to be going well between Isla and Tyrone until Isla’s husband, whom she told Tyrone she was separated from, emerged out of the blue and caught the pair on a date which ended with Tyrone being punched in the face.

Prior to Coronation Street,Gemma played Rachel Breckle on Emmerdalefrom 2011 until 2015.

While it appears as if Isla’s time on the cobbles has come to a close, Corrie viewers have taken a liking to Gemma and have been campaigning for her to remain on the show full time.

One person tweeted after her debut: “I just wanted to say that @gemmaoaten has been truly superb as Isla in tonight’s #Corrie! Hope she gets a longer stint!”
