Coronation Street: Summer’s boyfriend Felix is ‘pointless,’ fans complain

It wasn't love at first sight for Corrie fans

Fans of Coronation Street have been left complaining that the Cobbles newcomer, Summer’s boyfriend, Felix, is a ‘pointless’ addition to the soap. Summer Spellman recently returned to Weatherfield from a trip to America with her new man in tow.

Having returned home, she was eager to introduce Felix to her three dads – Paul, Billy and Todd. However, his big moment was upstaged by Paul, who had taken a tumble from his stairlift and was recovering on the sofa.

Todd didn’t do much to make Felix feel welcome either, questioning (albeit jokingly) whether Summer was dating ‘older men’ now.

Poor Felix didn’t do much to win over viewers either, if the reaction on social media was anything to go by.

Fans of Coronation Street react to ‘pointless’ new arrival

As Felix’s debut scenes aired, fans shared their thoughts on the new arrival. And, unfortunately for Felix and Summer, the early opinions weren’t very flattering – with many deeming him to be a ‘boring’ and ‘pointless’ addition.

‘Felix. Another pointless character,’ said one fan.

‘Summer has a new boyfriend called Felix. That’s the long and short of it,’ sighed another.

‘Felix an extra with lines?’ wondered a third.

‘Well Felix is a fun sponge. Get back to America and take Summer with you,’ said another.

‘Felix is so boring,’ a fifth agreed.

Can Felix win viewers over, or is Summer onto a non-starter?
