Unhappy Emmerdale viewers 'want to vomit' after 'forced sex agenda'

Emmerdale viewers were left unhappy and "wanting to vomit" following tonight's episode.

Mary Goskirk has recently tried her luck on dating apps in the hopes of connecting with a lovely woman. When she finally agreed to go on a date with Joy, she had a chat with daughter Rhona and revealed she has bought some sexy lingerie in case it goes well.

Rhona voiced concern and pleaded with her to only do what felt comfortable to her and to keep her expectations in check. Things turned a little awkward when husband Marlon Dingle finds the matching set and assumed it was Rhona's.

Marlon who had feared his wife no longer fancied him since he had his stroke, told Rhona he had found her "present". While he said she would look amazing, he said it felt a bit overwhelming.

Showing her the bag he found, he told her: "They're beautiful and oh my God you'd look amazing in them, but I was hoping for a bit less... just with it being our first time in such a long time...."

Rhona then had to tell him the lingerie was her mother's but reassured him she loved him and took him upstairs. Viewers found tonight's episode a lot to take in.

@sociablemimi asked on Twitter: "Why does every soap seem obsessed with forcing the 'older people have sex' agenda. It’s boring and awkward watch."

@Margare16040532 commented: "My God.....the writing is embarrassing."

@gffcontwitch criticised: "Whoever wrote this episode wants their pen putting in a safe, with a don't ever open again timer."

@PaulPoeUK wrote: "Dinner coming back up watching Emmerdale tonight."

But not everyone agreed. Others quite enjoyed the scenes.

@yorit1 said: "Mary is so cute about her date and her sex positive."

And @funkygibbons commented: "I like Mary, one of the very very few characters this set of producers have brought in that has worked."
