Coronation Street fans shocked as Sally Metcalfe is attacked by prison cellmate

CORONATION Street fans were left shocked tonight as Sally Metcalfe was attacked by her prison cellmate.

The character has been having a hard time in prison and it went from bad to worse tonight as Marcia attacked her.

Marcia wrongly thought Sally had grassed her up for having drugs in their cell earlier in the episode.

While Sally had threatened to tell the guards, it seems someone beat her to it, however Marcia refused to believe it wasn’t her.

As Marcia pinned Sally to the bunk beds, the camera headed out into the corridor while Sally could be heard screaming and crying for Marcia to stop.

In the second episode of tonight’s double bill, Sally’s injuries could be seen, as she returned to her cell with bruising and cuts all over her face.

Viewers took to Twitter to share their shock at the attack, with one writing: “I feel so sorry for Sally @sallydynevor #corrie @itvcorrie.”

Another wrote: “I get it needs to be aired but omg #Corrie I actually feel a bit sick now poor sally!”

A third tweeted: “Hearing Sally crying as she was being beaten, by her cell mate, was really disturbing and upsetting. I hope Sally manages to get out of there soon! #Corrie.”

A fourth agreed, posting: “Honestly couldnt bare listening to Sally getting beaten up then proper horrible #corrie.”
