Coronation Street fans are devastated over the news Ozzy the dog has to be put down

As with all soap operas, every now and then there has to be a death. It’s the circle of TV life.

But the latest death on the Coronation Street cobbles has left fans of the show particularly devastated, as Maria Connor’s dog Ozzy has to be put down.

In the latest episode of the ITV serial drama, Maria (Samia Ghadie) learned of the tragic news after her flatmate Caz Hammond (Rhea Bailey) and brother Kirk Sutherland (Andrew Whyment) took the dog to the vet.

Maria had not quite realised how serious the situation with the dog’s health was until she was given the massive blow that black Labrador Ozzy had just one more day left to live.

Talk about tugging on those heartstrings!

The next episode is going to be a weepy one as she has to say goodbye to Ozzy, but the fans are already up in arms and a nation is devastated over the storyline.
