Coronation Street viewers were furious after Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dynevor) was found guilty of fraud, money laundering and bribery on Monday night’s episode.

The former major of Weatherfield collapsed when she heard the decision, as her husband Tim and daughter Sophie were left in tears. 

Mayor Sally had previously been tricked into handing a council grant over to Duncan over the summer, under the false impression that he ran a charity.

Viewers have been waiting with baited breath to hear about the trial verdict, and it seems that her sister Gina may have sealed her fate as she admitted to the jury that she wasn’t 100 percent sure that she wouldn’t have cheated. 

During the trial, Sally begged the jury to believe her, as she said: ‘I have never stolen any money. I have never had an affair. I love my husband. I would never cheat on him. He is everything to me!’

But alas it was to no avail, as they named her guilty, and all Sally could do was cry out ‘I didn’t do it’ as she was taken back to prison.

Fans have likened the unfair trial to Deirdre Barlow and her false imprisonment, as well as the historic ‘Free the Weatherfield One’ campaign of the 1990s.

With many calling for the show to ‘free Sally’, some even went so far as to blast the showrunners’ decision to present the justice system in such a way. 

One wrote: ‘#Corrie The Sally guilty storyline is so horrible, that I am boycotting Coronation Street until Sally is released!’

Another user added: ‘So glad I only watch #ClassicCorrie now. Where it’s 1992 & young Sally has just given birth to Rosie. Life was better back then.’

While another slammed: ‘I’m so bloody fed up of Corrie having innocent people being found guilty in court all the time. It happened with Anna, now it’s happened AGAIN with Sally. We NEED to see justice PREVAIL. Anything else is just an unsatisfactory end to a court battle storyline.’ 

 One Twitter user said: ‘Shows how British society has deteriorated. 20 years ago the nation demanded justice for Deirdre, now poor Sally is rotting away in prison and no one gives a damn.

While she is going to prison, Sally won’t be leaving the show as viewers can expect to find out the length of her sentence, as well as see her life behind bars.
