Coronation Street viewers said they were heartbroken as Rana’s parents caught her in a clinch with her lesbian lover Kate.
In Mondays episodes of the ITV soap, Rana (Bhavna Limbachia) and Kate (Faye Brookes) thought they had the house to themselves and stripped off on the sofa.
They were kissing under a blanket when Alya (Sair Khan) arrived, with Rana’s parents in tow.
Rana’s mother and father were stunned and her father disowned her – leaving Rana in floods.
One fan posted on Twitter: “When Rana’s parents disowned her just then really broke me and now i have tears in my eyes.”
“Aww feel so sorry for rana. How can her parents treat her like that,” said another.
Many fans also praised the way both actresses have been been handling the complicated storyline.
“Poor Rana. My heart bleeds for her. @BhavnaLimbachia is playing a blinder here. She’s so good. A very talented actor,” said one.
Another said the soap was “blessed” to have Limbachia and Brookes among the cast.
“Brilliant performances tonight by the both of you,” the fan said.
“Well done you ladies are beyond amazing with your ability to portray emotions. Corrie is blessed to have you both.”
Coronation Street continues on ITV.
