On the Corrie cobbles Tina's character left viewers horrified as the Underworld manager continued her affair with drug dealer Damon Hay. The pair have been flirting and frolicking behind her husband Adam Barlow's back for weeks.

It was a close call in Monday's episode (May 8) when they were nearly caught by Adam, brother Nick Tilsley, his partner Leanne Battersby and her friend Dee-Dee Bailey, who works with solicitor Adam, as they romped at the Bistro. But as Sarah hid, Damon got them out of the predicament by telling their unexpected visitors that they had to evacuate the bistro.

Later, on her way to meet Damon again, Sarah was warned by Dee-Dee that she knew what she had been up to and had put her in an awkward position. Fans of the ITV soap complained that they felt sickened by her antics as she returned home and bedded Adam instead.

@Gemma42981517 tweeted: "Sarah’s going from one man to another." And @RhysThompson5 complained: "Sarah makes me sick from one bloke to another. She’s got the cheek to look her husband in the eye and still sleep with him."

@julesywoolsey exclaimed: "Eeeu Sarah…" @RikkiMellis_said: "The sudden sexualisation of Sarah in #corrie is making me so uncomfortable." And @LillyBelle19 messaged: "You make me sick."
