Corrie fans in Twitter rant at massive baby
CORONATION Street viewers have moaned on social media that a birth scene aired in Monday’s episode was not realistic.
The ITV soap welcomed a new addition for Leanne Battersby, played by Jane Danson ( above), but the baby’s dramatic arrival in a lift posed questions for viewers.
Fans wondered why the character’s labour was so quick, why the baby looked older than a newborn, and asked why there had been no umbilical cord to cut or placenta to deliver.
Viewer @hazel8630 tweeted: “Waters break, and with one push out comes a toddler! Wow, what an unrealistic birth! Did she even take her knickers off?!”
Another, @triciac475, wrote: “Well that was the cleanest and most mess-free labour and birth I’ve ever come across...fair play to you Leanne #Corrie #notpossible.”
And doubting viewer @Barbaraoshea7 added: “One push, no umbilical cord and the baby’s about 3 months old. brilliant.”
