Bethany Platt has had sex for the first time since she was gang raped by a vile grooming ring, and it was a momentous occasion in the young girl’s life.
So it’s a shame, thought some Coronation Street viewers, that her beau Ryan Connor had to spoil it with a cringeworthy post-sex remark.
On Wednesday night (May 8), Bethany and Ryan got intimate – the first time Tina’s teenage daughter had slept with someone since her harrowing grooming ordeal at the hands of Nathan Curtis.
It’s been a long road to recovery for Bethany, and she finally felt comfortable enough to have sex again.
In sweet scenes, Bethany made an emotional confession to Michelle’s son, before agreeing to rekindle their romance.

She confided in Ryan about her devastating rape ordeal and he, in turn, promised never to hurt her and to always get her consent.
After kissing passionately, the pair disappeared off to the bedroom for some privacy…
In the next scene, they were seen lying naked in bed and Bethany asked if he was okay.
And THIS readers is when Ryan lost the respect of Coronation Street viewers!
Channelling his inner Simon Cowell, Ryan TOTALLY ruined the romantic moment by giving a reply straight out of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent.
He told Bethany: “I’m going to say it’s a yes from me.
“In fact, golden buzzer straight through to the final.”
When Bethany replied: “I’m not in competition, am I?”
Ryan reassured her, adding: “No, you are definitely not in competition.”
And the awkward reference to the talent show was called out by viewers, with one tweeting: “#Corrie. Did he really just reference #BGT?”
Another said: “Yikes. But fine. You do you, Bethany. #Corrie.”
Yikes. But fine. You do you, Bethany. #Corrie

Soap fans are desperately hoping that Bethany finally gets a shot at happiness, and are worried that she IS in fact in a competition – after all, Ryan had arranged a date with Alya before sleeping with Bethany.
Will he break Bethany’s heart?
