Emmerdale viewers shocked by X-rated remark as Gabby slammed as 'inappropriate'

Emmerdale viewers were left shocked after Bernice Blackstock made an x-rated comment and slammed Gabby Thomas for her "inappropriate" behaviour.

During the latest episode on February 23, Bob Hope gets accused of cheating by his partner Wendy Posner. Wendy overheard Bob telling Bernice that "there must be no more sex at work", leaving her thinking the two had slept together.

When Bob stops by at Wendy's house, she refuses to open the door for him and instead dumps ice cold water over him from an upstairs window. Not sure what to do, Bob confides in Bernice and tells her what happened.

Bernice, slightly horrified, marches off to confront Wendy to tell her it had been Tim, the harpist, Bernice had a fling with and not Bob. During their conversation, Bernice says that she would never go for Bob and even if she tried, she was sure he would reject her advances.

Bernice also decided to share more details than necessary about her crush on Tim and praised his musical skills, saying: "Oh, Wendy, you should've seen him. Wonderful fingering." However, Emmerdale viewers found her choice of words hilarious.

@teamkinGZioN tweeted: "Watch now when the fingering comment gets a load of complaints."

@penniless_poet wrote: "No wonder Bernice liked the harpist - 'wonderful fingering' - ahem!"

@MattZeeMiller joked: "Amazing fingering and such a powerful instrument. Think we all need a good harpist."

Meanwhile, fans were not happy with how Gabby Thomas has been behaving towards Nicky the nanny. The young mum has been relentlessly 'lecherously' pursuing him, despite his multiple rejections.

In her latest efforts, she fires him, hoping it would make him feel more inclined to get romantically involved if she wasn't his boss.

@Ems03700691 wrote: "Gabby’s pursuit of the child minder is just creepy. If it was a bloke chasing a woman that way, Ofcom would be inundated."

@Ockeghem1497 commented: "Switch the genders around and what Gabby is doing would be considered sexual harassment."

@CPTSDBiDisaster criticised: "Gabby's behaviour with Nicky is gross (and so was dawn's 'joke')."

@realmarkjames20 said: "Gabby still sexually harassing Nicky then… If it were Nicky harassing Gabby there would be cancellations right, left and centre."
