Corrie fans fume as Simon Cowells new show Walk The Line ruins ITV schedule

Coronation Street fans were left fuming as they attempted to tune in for the latest instalment of their favourite soap to be met with Simon Cowell's new ITV programme.

Walk The Line debuted on the channel on Sunday in hope of finding undiscovered talent, who will all be in with a chance to win some serious cash.

However, soap goers were not impressed that Corrie had been sacrificed for most of the week as a result of the singing competition, as episodes will air every night at 7:30 instead of double bills of the soap every other day.

Upset that the ITV scheduled had been tampered with, they took to Twitter to file their grievances.

One person fumed: "I would rather have the extra episode of @itvcorrie than #WalkTheLine! #boring #corrie."

Another raged: "Where the hell is #Corrie?????? What's this s***e 'talent' show that's replaced it?

"FFS @ITV whoever made this decision needs to get fired instantly! #CoronationStreet #ITV."

While a third penned: "Who gave ITV permission to air #Corrie once a night this week to make way for some absolutely s***e singing show with average talent and boring judges? #WalkTheLine."
