Indeed, there has only been 4 new characters join the Street (for more than 1 episode) according to Wikipedia. One's died already (Eric) and another is leaving soon (Tim) with these 8 others characters set to leave and only 3 former cast members returning the Street will look a bit thin on the ground.

Also bear in mind the new Street set is larger the place will look deserted!

Apparently Sylvie is going now, Stephanie Cole is taking a break due to ill health. I hope she gets better soon and returns to Corrie. She is one Corrie actress I would like to see back.

Sylvia wasn't in it on Friday. She was mentioned but unseen, which I felt very odd as would she not want to wave off Roy and Hayley as they went on their holiday?

Must be spmething quite serious for her to quit so suddenly.
I wonder how on earth they will write her out in view of the support she has been giving Hayley.

Her absence was explained away again tonight (headache).

I hope Stephanie gets well soon. If she has had to leave due to ill health during the Hayley and Roy storyline then she has to, her health comes before her career.

Her departure looks permanent.

Poor Roy, widowed and 'orphaned' in the same year.

Laziest exit ever.

A note!

I presume Cole is not well at all if they could not film any final scene at all. Hope she gets well soon.

Yes we are going to meet very soon the brother of Steph (Katie's mate).

As an aside-roughly 50 new people appeared onscreen in Corrie in 2013, 41 of them are 'one offs*' with 9 joining the main cast, of that 50, 10 of them are just for Hayley's cancer storyline. I can't remember the last time so many characters were written in for just one storyline.

*One off meaning anything from just being in 1 episode or central to 1 storyline and then disappearing.
