Before the most recent episode of Coronation Street, viewers were warned to be ready for “difficult conversations.”
Fans of Coronation Street have taken offence at an ITV warning issued prior to Monday’s episode of the ongoing soap.
The announcer warned viewers who had tuned in to ITV to be ready for “strong emotions and difficult conversations with scenes some viewers may find upsetting” as they caught up on all the most recent Cobbles drama.
Many viewers rushed to Twitter after the announcement because they believed the warning was unnecessary.
There are too many cautions these days; what happened to the good old days? wrote @VampLover27.
“Strong emotions, challenging conversations, and scenes some people might find upsetting,” yelled CeCe. FFS. Has there ever been a Corrie episode in the last ten years without this bulls**t before it even begins? (sic)
Doreen Mortfitt said: “Difficult convos, upsetting scene = hilarious tweets #Corrie.” (sic)
“#Corrie,” wrote Jonty. More disturbing chats and sights. Do we enjoy watching this? We once did.
The images of upset warning, though, is clearly effective, as Owen admitted, “I’m in bits at the prospect of Paul dying with Billy by his side. #Corrie.”
Guy further stated, “#Corrie finding this story with Paul quite moving and somewhat upsetting the patient he’s with in the hospital is very convincing.”
Paul Foreman (played by Peter Ash) spoke with Shelly, a member of a motor neurone disease support group, during the moving episode, and she urged him to pursue his aspirations.
Paul ultimately revealed to his partner Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) that Shelly had aided in his emotional processing and that he had a question for him.
Billy informed Summer Spellman (Harriet Bibby) that he was expecting a marriage proposal and believed Paul would do so.
When the time came, Paul eventually asked his boyfriend if he would assist him in taking his own life.
The grieved vicar vowed never to assist in putting his cherished companion “down like a dog” and expressed his sorrow to the man.
Billy replied to Paul, “When you said you wanted to talk to me, I thought you were going to propose.
“It’s a good idea, I can’t get down on one knee, but we should.”
