Corrie viewers swearing over 'evil' detail in upsetting Gemma's wedding scenes

Soap watchers were warned of "upsetting scenes" as they settled down to watch Tuesday's episode of Coronation Street - but they didn't expect to be left rattled by a detail at Gemma Winter and Chesney Brown's wedding reception. Gemma Winter wowed in typical exuberant style as she walked down the aisle in a giant orange light-up gown hailed by fans as the 'best wedding dress ever.'

Co-designed and made by drag queen and fashion designer Liquorice Black, Gemma's dress, with a seven-metre long train, had 125 metres of tiny fairy lights activated by remote control and approximately 10,000 stones individually glued on by hand. Chesney beamed with pride as his bride walked towards him to the song The Promise by Girls Aloud in Monday's Coronation Street.

And the mouthy mum of quads delivered another surprise as the bride and groom took to the dancefloor for their first dance - to the eighties earworm song Agadoo by Black Lace. Gemma was uncharacteristically downcast as she was awkwardly forced to dance to the holiday and school disco classic, once voted the fourth most annoying song of all time, just after finding out that her twin brother Paul Foreman has Motor Neurone Disease and thinks he has just three years to live.

Her new husband had no idea of the distressing news she had just received as she switched on her fairy lights and held him tight as they took to the dancefloor. @mishybabez_ tweeted: "Agadoo as a first dance song really? Wow." And @ElaineWharton1 grumbled: "Aga bloody doo."

@MatthewMitt6 complained: "The evil Agadoo." @penniless_poet said: "Trust Gemma to have Agadoo as her first dance." And @soaps_extra gasped: "Agadoo!"

@Momrocks50 laughed: "Agadoo god love Gemma keeping it classy." And @itzzzo_remarked: "Poor Gemma, imagine being told your brother has got about 3 years left to live and then you've got to do aga f***ing doo, as if everything's fine."

@ASuperGav said: "You can tell a classy party when Agadoo plays." And @GregDav94758992 exclaimed: "Agadoo! First dance at your wedding."

Later, after Chesney found out the family's devastating news, he huffed: "I can't believe all this was going on while I was goofing around to Agadoo."
