Corrie viewers FURIOUS after someone snorts COCAINE before watershed

Coronation Street viewers were raging on social media after thug drug dealer Rich snorted cocaine before the watershed

It seems like Coronation Street producers are really pushing the boundaries at the moment.

They're currently being investigated by Ofcom for showing the Bethany Platt gang rape scene on a Saturday morning omnibus - which is obviously pre-watershed.

And now viewers have slammed the show after one of the characters appeared to actually take a Class A drug on the show last night.

Yep - drug dealer Rich literally snorted cocaine whilst doing a dodgy deal in a car with Robert Preston.

Robert's dodgy past has been uncovered this week, and when Rich offered him the bag after snorting away himself, there was a heart-stopping moment where we thought he might do it.

Thankfully, he didn't - before confessing to his new girlfriend Michelle Connor that he was actually setting Rich up with the police.

Despite being over the moon that he did not indulge his old habit, viewers took to Twitter to blast the show for showing someone taking the drug so explicitly.
