KRONUNG Street onlookers all said the same thing about the wine prices at The Rovers Return Pub.
In the scene on Friday’s episode of the ITV soap, Dee-Dee Bailey (played by Channique Sterling-Brown) walked into the pub and asked for a white wine.
Landlady Jenny (Sally Ann Matthews) asked, “Small, medium, or large?”
The lawyer replied, “Make it huge.”
Jenny added: “Oh bad hair day?” before I suggest “Tell you what. Why don’t I just give you the bottle and a straw?”
“Don’t tempt me,” Dee-Dee joked.
Jenny then asked for £5 for the glass of wine, shocking ITV viewers at the extortionate pub prices.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: “£5 for a glass of screw top wine??? #Corrie”
Another chimed in: “Not even a jar that big. Back in the real world, pubs are struggling.”
Also in the episode, Gail Platt (Helen Worth) made fans blush when she revealed a rude-looking “stimulator” that helps her sleep.
In one scene in the episode’s opening moments, Gail goes into the kitchen to talk to son David (Jack P. Shepherd) and his partner Shona (Julia Goulding).
Gail was standing in her dressing gown, carrying a small box in one hand and an orange device in the other.
She said: “I just had one of the best sleeps of my life.
David asked what she was up to before taking a sip of orange juice, but he spat it out immediately when Shona told him it was “Gail’s stimulator” as his mum said the same thing.
As he grabbed a towel and dried his mouth, he exclaimed, “Ugh damn it! I didn’t want to hear that…God!”
Gail put the hand with the object in his face and said, “It’s a sleeping pill, look!”
However, David continued to feign horror before Shona gasped and said: “No! You didn’t think it was…”
When she grinned, David cut her off and while pointing his finger at her, he said, “No! I didn’t… stop it, stop it. Don’t finish that sentence.”
Shona giggled while Gail went ahead and read the box anyway.
She said, “It says it offers CES, Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation.”
She then presented Shona with the orange stimulator and the shape certainly caught the attention of Corrie viewers too.
As David begged his mum to “stop saying the word stimulation,” one fan of the ITV soap tweeted: “I would have spat out my orange juice too.”
Another added: “OMG I’m ashamed what is this device.”
A third wrote, “Oh dear Gail,” and a fourth wrote, “This is Corrie at his best.”
