I for one was less than bowled over when Kylie Turner made her debut in the Street. Just another mouthy tramp, I thought. The storyliners have obviously gone for the slow burn on this one. This particular leopard will probably never change her spots but we are starting to see a slightly more reserved, doubtful versuion of the hideous spitbag who first graced the cobbles. On Coronation Street, dopery David aside, she is friendless and one wonders who on earth Collinson and co will eventually team her up with. Katie? Amber? Sylvia? Will Kylie be to Gail what Gail was once to Ivy?
Anyway, we are several months into the dubious delights of Kylie Turner and this particular blogger has decided to nail his colours to the mast (or to Tracy if she's within hammering distance . . .) and declare . . . I quite like Kylie!
Does she have a future in the Street and, if so, who on earth is going to give her the time of day?
