Coronation Street viewers spot cruel blunder with Sinead Tinker’s cancer story

Sinead broke down sobbing in the hospital but a cruel blunder made it all the worse for viewers

Coronation Street viewers spotted a cruel blunder in last night’s scenes after Sinead Tinker was told she had cancer.

The pregnant factory worker, played by Katie McGlynn, rushed out of the consultation room sobbing and wailing over the tragic news.

But as she sobbed and clutched her stomach in the hospital corridor, multiple nurses wandered past her without a second glance.

She was left alone to cry while they sauntered by her, and now viewers have hit out at the soap for the unrealistic portrayal of NHS nurses.

One furious viewer tweeted the soap to say: “@itvcorrie Portraying Sinead distraught at the hospital…

“No nurse would just walk past without asking or checking if she was okay.. Disappointed for all those caring nurses that watched that episode. Bad call Corrie.”

Another added: “I would be devastated if the nurses ignored the distress my daughter was in #Corrie #Sinead could do better scriptwriters.”

A third said: “In real life if you was crying and panicking in a hospital corridor a nurse would say something.

A fourth commented: “#coronationstreet Has slipped up badly with that nurse just walking by a clearly distraught Sinead.”

But while some were taken aback by the blunder, other fans were blown away by Katie’s acting.
