'Corrie' Producers Appear To Forget THIS Character Is ALREADY DEAD In Horrific Gaffe
Producers of the long-running soap might need to go back and brush up on the history of the cobbles.
Scriptwriters for Corrie made yet another horrific gaffe last night when they mentioned a character that had already died.
During a scene in the Rover's Return, Todd Grimshaw told his partner Billy Mayhew that Adam Barlow had been looking for his dad in the pub.
However, his dad Mike Baldwin died 11 years ago!
Of course, the embarrassing mix-up didn't go unnoticed by viewers at home who quickly took to Twitter to slam the producers.
Adam was "looking for his dad", Todd? Really? The DEAD Mike Baldwin?! #Corrie— Daniel (@sirdanielmeyer) 15 February 2017
Did Todd just say Adam was looking for his dad?! he'll be looking a long time, his dad is Mike Baldwin and he's been dead years #Corrie— Lucy:) (@Lucy_Marie14) 15 February 2017
@itvcorrie why did Todd say to Billy that Adam was looking for his dad? His dad is dead!— Tanya Pollard (@TanyaP2015) 15 February 2017
@itvcorrie Todd just said Adam was looking for his Dad in the Rovers??— Laura Worsley (@Lauradj_1985) 15 February 2017
Isn't Mike Baldwin his Dad?? Have a shock if he found him eh!!!!
Why did Todd say Adam was looking for his Dad? His dad is Mike and he is no longer here. His REAL Dad is his grandad on the show! #corrie— eyesascandles (@eyesascandles) 15 February 2017
So what could possibly have been the reason for such an epic gaffe? Well, it's likely Todd was supposed to say Adam was looking for his granddad, Ken Barlow and said, 'dad' instead.
However, if he was genuinely looking for his dad, then boy...he's about to get a shock!
