Yesterday the soap’s Twitter page released it’s Saturday first look spoiler pictures from filming.

One of them sees Gemma Winter and Chesney sharing adult times on the sofa but it’s what’s covering Gemma up that’s caused the trouble.

She’s clad in just an American flag blanket, and it has not gone down well with North America’s other country.

One furious fan tweeted: “HEY??? What’s with all the American love on the show?

“The American blanket???? Do they watch as much as we Canadian’s. I think NOT.”

Another added: “What’s with the blanket with the American flag?? Why not a Hudson’s Bay blanket???”

Hudson’s Bay is a classic Canadian company known for its distinctive blankets.

Last year actresses Katie McGlynn and Lisa George toured Canada to visit Corrie’s loyal following over there, so the soaps a big deal.

But it wasn’t just the blanket causing decorative fury with fans – Chesney’s choice of staircase accoutrements also had fans hitting out.

One said: “What the hell is that all about with the skulls up the staircase? Poor Joseph must have nightmares!”

And it won’t just be Joseph having nightmares if recent reports about Gemma falling pregnant with quadruplets is true – the couple will need to build up into the loft.

A source told The Sun: “The show’s new boss, Iain MacLeod, is keen to inject a bit of old-fashioned ­humour into Coronation Street like in the years gone by and this ­storyline will have viewers in stitches.

“Gemma doesn’t miss a trick and instantly thinks of ways she can make some dosh out of her and Chesney’s unexpected news.”
