If ever there was a character who you know is going to be axed inside 12 months, it's her

Far too old and frumpy to be a realistic love interest for ladies man Lloyd. Totally charisma free yet has wormed herself a job in the Rovers and is now being greeted "alright Mandy" by people who don't even know her

Does anyone actually like her?

I like her, she didn't have a good entrance, but I think she's settling in nicely I did find it strange when Fiz and Dev were so pally with her last night though.

I quite like her! I didn't initially but now she's settled in and is integrating with more characters I think she's good.

She's so uninteresting, I wasn't even sure who you were on about initially.

She's great, if you thought her relationship with Lloyd is unbelievable, then you must have really fell hook line and sinker for his relationship with Cheryl.

I like Mandy, and I usually give new characters more than two months to bed in.

It was at least believable that Lloyd would fancy Cheryl

He's a cheeky chappy who still thinks he's 21. He wouldn't settle down with a woman who looks older than he does

She's actually quite natural behind the bar and interacting with other characters. Her introduction was awful though with all that running off to Nottingham rubbish every time Lloyd got close to her.

I don't mind her

I reckon Cheryl, the sexy lap dancer was Lloyd's most unbelievable love interest.

Sorry but HAHAHAHA you are so right, this is how I feel too.

A normal bloke - after seeing his old flame for the first time in decades and noticing that she has let herself go a bit would not be interested in rekindling that relationship, it is the larger and the not so beautiful brigade that believe in this relationship as it gives them hope.

I am prepared for the no sense of humour brigade to tackle me on this subject

She has not made any impression on me but I would rather see her annoying physiotherapist daughter axed first.

I also think Lloyd and Stella would've made a better pairing, and find it very unrealistic that he's spending so much time with her but isn't attracted to her

I'm with the majority on here: disliked her entrance and initial stories but surprised myself by actually enjoying her on Monday's episodes. I like her interactions with Steve and in The rovers. She strangely seems to have fitted in suddenly.

I don't know what to make of her and Lloyd tbh so I'll give it a while and see where it goes.

I hated this story initially and felt uncomfortable with Lloyd's scenes with Jenna when it appeared like he was flirting with her

I think we all have to accept that at his age he can't pull 21 year olds

She does look like a natural behind the bar . Far more realistic than Stella or even worse, Gloria. I hope she stays

I don't like her, she's like another character forced on us like Stella, her storyline was so out of the blue
I don't really think she's a very good actress either and why is everyone so friendly with her like they've known her for ages, she hasnt even spoken to most of the street

Maybe, like most people when they have children, or in his case has discovered he has a daughter, he has realised it is time to leave the party.

edit: changed word

Oh - and I like Mandy She has grown on me.
