It wasn’t all about the Callum drama in last night’s #CorrieLive, and fans were delighted when Twitter user Adam won a competition, and used his chance to have his message on the Rovers’ specials board to propose to his girlfriend.
However, the tale has now taken a twist, as it’s being claimed that the proposal may have been a fake.
Shortly after the show aired, the ‘Coronation Street’ Twitter account shared a congratulatory message to Adam, posting a picture of Stephen Mulhern with the sign, and tagging his account:
Now, less than 24 hours after the episode, Adam’s account has been deleted, and a source tells The Mirror that the soap’s bosses are having trouble contacting the couple, stating: “They’re looking into trying to find Adam and Katie but they haven’t had any luck let.”
Fans on Twitter have questioned whether the proposal was a sham, with some citing the other tweets which were on Adam’s timeline as proof that it was a spam account.
Further digging reveals that the account @LiterallyAdam sent over 100 tweets to the ‘Corrie’ account, in a bid to get the message into the show.
When contacted by HuffPost UK, a ‘Corrie’ spokesperson declined to comment on the matter.
It’s been a rollercoaster few weeks for the soap’s team, who were dealt a number of blows in the run-up to the big night.
Earlier this month, it was announced that executive producer Stuart Blackburn will depart the soap in the New Year, and though she recovered in time, Barbara Knox was forced to miss rehearsals due to illness.
In the coming weeks, soap fans will see the fallout from Callum’s murder, as Sarah and Kylie start to buckle under the pressure.
