'Enough is enough!

'Coronation Street viewers call for the Nazir family to be axed from the ITV soap. Loyal fans of Coronation Street have voiced their opinions, suggesting that it's time for the Nazir family to depart from the beloved cobbles.

Since their introduction to the show in 2013, the Nazirs have been central to many major storylines on the street.

However, some viewers believe that the family has outstayed its welcome.

Sair Khan, who portrays Alya Nazir, is currently gearing up to exit the series due to her real-life pregnancy.

The actress is expecting her first child and will soon be taking maternity leave.

In the storyline, Alya has expressed a desire to move to Dublin with Rich, but recent developments have complicated matters.

After being paired with Adam Barlow on a case, emotions run high, leading to an unexpected kiss between them.

Fans are now speculating whether Alya will continue with her plans to move to Ireland or stay in Weatherfield for Adam.

The latest plot twist has sparked debate among viewers, with some suggesting that the entire Nazir clan should be written out.

A comment from one viewer on a soap forum read: "Yasmeen and Stu could vanish tomorrow and nobody would even notice, both are incredibly boring characters! "

Coronation Street viewers have taken to social media to express mixed opinions over the recent departure of Alya Nazir.

Some fans believe that Alya's character should make a return with a new family, while others believe that the Nazir family has run its course and should be written out of the soap.

One fan stated: "Alya is wasted, she should return with a new family of her own in tow or not at all. The Nazir clan have run their course, they could easily be written out."

Another echoed: "You're not wrong. They're not the strongest family unit mainly due to Stu. Started off as interesting, but he really sucks the life out of them."

A third viewer agreed, stating: "Yasmeen worked better as a single character altogether, but I don't know what else they could do with her."

However, other fans disagree and believe that Alya is a valuable asset to the show. One fan noted: "I hope she isn't away for long, she's one of the best things about the show right now."

Another viewer blamed the writers for the unconvincing exit storyline, stating: "It's been idiotically written but she has been OK" .

Previous controversial storylines involving the Nazir family include Yasmeen's experience of coercive control at the hands of her abusive partner, Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew). After Yasmeen stabbed Geoff in self-defence, she faced a court trial and fought for her freedom.
