Coronation Street fans beg show to scrap controversial student-teacher storyline

Coronation Street fans have begged ITV bosses to scrap a controversial storyline between Summer Spellman and her tutor Daniel Osborne.

As their one-on-one sessions continue, viewers are convinced there is a horrifying storyline waiting for the 17-year-old Summer as some fear her 26-year-old teacher may have ulterior motives.

In addition to this, the young teacher has also been accused of favouritism in his classroom through his private tutoring sessions with Summer while he ignores the needs of other students such as Max Turner.

During last night’s episode, viewers watched Summer gush over Daniel after she confessed she had copied his personal statement to use on her application which would have cost her a place at the prestigious university.

Luckily her boyfriend Aadi Alahan contacted Daniel and convinced him to stop her from submitting the application.

But fans many fans felt uncomfortable that Summer was relieved that Daniel stopped her through his kind understanding words towards her situation.

This caused an outpour of viewers to share their disgust at the blossoming relationship between the two online.

A third agreed: “Hope this Daniel/Summer story isn’t going where I think it is … #corrie.”
