Tracy Barlow’s sleuthing skills were top dollar when it came to finding out who the real ‘Katie’ is, but fans could not get past the storyline which they branded "boring."
Steve McDonald’s father, Jim, told the family how their long lost daughter, Katie, actually never died and is alive and well, having contacted Jim.
She searched him through his Army records and tracked him down, having realised both of them have exactly the same illness.
But in reality, Jim and Hannah, who is posing as Katie, are in a sexual relationship and are trying to con Liz and Steve out of their businesses and money.
Tracy gave it her best shot to find out some information about Hannah, when she met her along with Tracy, and Steve was amazed by her wonderful sleuthing techniques, saying she was "scarily good" at her work.
They ended up finding out she actually was called Hannah Gilmore, but Jim found a way to wriggle out with a lie about her escaping a jealous boyfriend.
Fans agreed, and it took their eyes ff the "boring" storyline for a while.
One said: "Never fear Tracy’s on the case #Corrie"
But fans were mainly concerned with the storyline itself, which they found totally "boring" and "unrealistic."
One said: "What a ridiculous, unbelievable & borng "plot" this Liz/Jim/Katie story is #Corrie"
Another added: "#Corrie when I learned Jim was coming back I thought nice 1 but this fake daughter thing is so far fetched and so f**** boring"
A third said: "You can tell it is near Xmas as all the rubbish #Corrie storylines are getting out of the way now.
"1 fake baby swap – again
"2 sisters sleeping with the same man – again
"3 Kathy & Brian – need I say more
"I really liked the ep weeks ago with Mary & Tracy dancing – more of that pls!"
