While another put: 'I'm struggling to remember a more disturbing half hour of soap than tonight's Coronation Street. Bloody hell.'

'Can’t stop thinking about that episode. It was harrowing to watch and at some point, that hidden camera will come to light - there is a year’s worth of proof on it,' tweeted a third.

With another dramatically adding: 'Tonight's #Corrie has got to be one of the most disturbing episodes ever!'
