Coronation Street fans have been left divided as two of its legendary characters continue to row.
Audrey Roberts got the hump with pal Rita Tanner after Norris Cole revealed her secret from beyond the grave.
After teasing that the paperboy outside The Kabin contained a secret – only for it to be a final prank from the nosey neighbour – Roy finished by reading Norris’ letter which revealed that Rita used to surreptitiously have her hair coloured by Audrey’s rival Claudia Colby.
A row between the pair led to Rita saying she didn’t trust Audrey to do the job, leaving her crushed.
Her upset continued at the start of this week as she appeared deeply hurt by Rita’s betrayal.
But on Wednesday night, the tension between the pair spilled over at Audrey’s birthday meal.
Audrey was already underwhelmed to find only her daughter Gail and grandchildren Sarah and David there.
She then appeared offended by her gifts and felt like her family were treating her like an old woman.
After inviting Rita to the meal, Gail quickly tried to cancel but she showed up anyway, leading to the birthday girl walking out.
As she got in her car to leave, Gail tried to convince her to stay but in her haste, she ended up reversing into Rita’s car.
Rita was furious and the pair squabbled in the street – with Rita calling Audrey a menace and Audrey telling her to ‘shut up’.
And Corrie viewers have been left divided over the row.
“Audrey needs to stop this vendetta against Rita. It’s getting petty now. Audrey’s clearly just jealous #Corrie,” tweeted one.
Another said: “This thing between Audrey and Rita is just pathetic now #Corrie.”
However, another argued: “This Audrey vs Rita feud is hilarious #Corrie.”
“Love it when Audrey and Rita argue with each other #corrie,” a fourth added.
Another joked: “Do you think could we drag out the Rita, Audrey argument till Easter lol!! #Corrie.”
But there is a concern for Audrey because her repeated references to death.
Annoyed at David, Sarah and Gail in the Bistor, Audrey hit out: “Write a list [of gifts] and send it to me on my death-bed, because that’s clearly where I’m heading!”
“Was that a bit of foreshadowing there? Does Audrey die in the sinkhole in big soap week? #Corrie,” one viewer qeustioned.
Another echoed: “is audrey about to die ? #Corrie.”
