Corrie fans brand Tyrone Dobbs ‘insensitive’ after Seb death announcement

Coronation Street fans have been left reeling after a blunder involving Seb Franklin’s tragic death.

He and girlfriend Nina Lucas were viciously attacked by Corey Brent’s gang in a brutal hate crime on Wednesday, which left them both in hospital fighting for their lives.

But Seb, tragically, didn’t make it, leaving mum Abi 'hauntingly' devastated as she fell to her knees, wailing.

Roy Cropper had to tell his niece Nina that her boyfriend had passed away.

And on Monday night it was down to Tyrone Dobbs to break the news to his girlfriend Alina Pop and flatmate Emma Brooker – two of Seb’s exes.

Blundering Tyrone, portrayed on-screen by Alan Halsall, bluntly announced the news that Seb had died to the gathered women.

"Has something happened?" Emma asked, noting Tyrone’s frantic look as he took a phone call from business partner Kevin Webster – who is engaged to Seb’s mum Abi.

"Seb’s er, Seb’s died," he told his stunned flatmates.

Tyrone rushed out of the flat, leaving Alina and Emma in stone cold shock.

But viewers were stunned by his insensitivity in delivering the devastating news, and flocked to Twitter to share their bafflement at the blunder.

"That wasn’t very sensitive of Tyrone!" one complained.

Another wrote: "What a way to tell two of his exes, Tyrone!"

"Tyrone delivered the news to Emma & Alina so dead-pan omg," another penned.

While someone else posted: "Really Tyrone you were full of heart and compassion there."

Seb risked his own skin in 2019 to rescue his then-girlfriend Alina from a human trafficking ring after she was smuggled into the country from Romania and forced to work at a nail salon.

But after she returned home, Seb went on to date barmaid Emma.

He became embroiled in a love triangle upon Alina’s return in February 2020, which was made even worse when the girls became best friends.

Seb also dated Faye Windass, who is currently serving time in prison for unwittingly assaulting Adam Barlow, when he first arrived on the cobbles in 2016.

Faye helped him escape from his home situation, as mum Abi overdosed on drugs.

Now Alina is dating Tyrone as the pair prepare to buy a house together, after Tyrone abandoned fiancée Fiz Stape for the Romanian beauty.
