Sean is trying to raise money for a flat of his own so he can bring his son Dylan to live with him.
But when he demanded Gemma and Chesney pay him the commission from his make-up pyramid scheme, he revealed his true age.
Gemma told him: “I feel about 50 today.”
And Sean replied: “Don’t – that is my next significant birthday I mean it’s in a while but even so.
“How is it even possible that I’m going to be the big 5-0?”
Viewers were in shock at Sean’s age as he dresses like someone who thinks he’s much younger.
One wrote: “F off Sean get your life sorted .. it’s not all drama and look at me.. even your kid is embarased.”
A second said: “What the heck peacock has Sean got on. The top doesn’t do it.”
Another added: “Why is Sean from #corrie wearing a black tshirt with peacock feathers stapled to it!”
Others were furious at Sean for involving his neighbours in the scam and putting Gemma and Chesney through hell for £85.

A second said: “Why does Sean want money from Gemma? Have I missed something.”
Another added: “Micheal is right Sean can’t pressure Gemma.”
