Coronation Street hit with over a hundred Ofcom complaints after Corey gets let off Seb murder charge


CORONATION Street has been hit with 137 Ofcom complaints from furious viewers upset by the Seb Franklin murder trial verdict.

Ofcom will assess the complaints to determine if action needs to be taken against the soap.

In the episode, Abi visited Stefan to try and get him to confess to bribing witnesses during the trial. 

But in a disastrous turn of events, Stefan called the police and got Abi arrested for trespassing. 

In heart-wrenching scenes, the jury then found Kelly guilty of murder.

Abi rushed into the building to hear the verdict and was stunned to see Corey walking free. 

“Come on,” he shouted. “Dad I was like what is she going to say. It was like a game show or something. You should have seen your face.”

Corey then asked his dad to go for a curry and turning around, winked at Abi before leaving.

Corrie fans were disgusted with the verdict, with one tweeting: “F*** off as if Corey got to walk and free and Kelly didn’t. Fuming.”

Another added: “FUMING with that result!”

A third chimed in: “OMG, that wink! Corey is pure evil.”

Nina Lucas’s harrowing flashbacks confirmed that Corey was responsible for Seb’s death. He was shown repeatedly stamping on Seb’s head on the night of the attack.

Viewers have watched in horror as Corey took to the stand and lied through his teeth, claiming Kelly viciously attacked Seb as he tried to stop her. 

Things only got worse when Corey’s mate Eli took the stand and backed up Corey’s version of events.

Kelly started to realise something wasn’t right as Tommy Orpington took to the witness box and gave Corey a glowing character reference.

But when she kicked off and accused Stefan of paying the witnesses, she was ordered to leave court.
