Coronation Street has been labeled “disgraceful” as eagle-eyed viewers noticed a shocking song choice on tonight’s episode.
As Michelle Connor was rushed off to hospital during Leanne Tillsley’s baby shower, the jukebox in the Rovers Return was blasting the Bay City Rollers hit Bye Bye Baby. Pretty insensitive, seeing as Corrie viewers will know Kym Marsh’s character is about to suffer a stillbirth in Wednesday’s episode.
And viewers of the ITV soap were very quick to call it out. One said: “Bye bye baby on in the Rovers whilst Michelle’s having a miscarriage? Disgraceful #corrie.” Another agreed: “Michelle’s losing her baby and ‘Bye Bye Baby’ is the song playing in the pub. Harsh. #Corrie #coronationstreet.” A third hit out: “#Corrie playing bye bye baby while Michelle is having a miscarriage? Distasteful.”
