The massive arachnid was brought into the restaurant by its youngster owner as he joined his mother and grandmother for a family meal.

However midway through the meal the Mexican Red Knee burst through its carrier and went exploring into the dining room.

It left other diners utterly terrified with them fleeing once they spotted the beast.

And it was too much for viewers.

Coronation Street fans hit out at spider shock

They are demanding to know why there was no warning before the spider appeared.

One said: “Really not happy at you featuring the giant spider in #CoronationStreet tonight #ITV #Corrie @itvcorrie #Corrie”

A second asked: “Why no spider warning? I’ve just screamed the house down. Scriptwriters run out of ideas!!!”

A third raged: “Hope there’s a helpline at the end of this episode for those affected by the [expletive] HUGE spider #Corrie”
