Coronation Street viewers have complained on social media that a birth scene aired in Monday’s episode was not realistic.
The ITV soap welcomed a new addition for Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson), but the baby’s dramatic arrival in a lift posed some questions for soap viewers.
Fans of the programme wondered why the character’s labour was so quick, why the baby looked older than a newborn, and asked why there had been no umbilical cord to cut or placenta to deliver.

Giving birth to 3 month old in a lift! #sounrealistic— catherine mchale (@cath2411) February 20, 2017
Those watching the episode were surprised by the size of the baby.
Plenty of people complained about the lack of detail in the scene.
Even Jane and her husband agreed that Leanne had a remarkably quick labour.
However, one viewer praised the soap for not dragging the scene out.
