Corrie fans left in hysterics as Sharon tasers Jenny in sudden attack twist

Coronation Street fans were left in absolute hysterics at the use of a "random" prop during Monday night's visit to the cobbles.

It came as Jenny Connor uncovered Sharon Bentley's connection to notorious drug dealer Harvey, and realised Sharon was behind Sam's kidnapping as part of her sinister plot to lure Leanne and Simon out of hiding.

And as Jenny called Rita to warn her away from Sharon, the villain overheard her.

But as Jenny turned to storm off, she froze in place – and as the camera angle switched, it showed Jenny was twitching because Sharon had produced a taser and shot her in the back with it.

Far from being concerned for the Rovers landlady, the look on Jenny's face as the electricity hit her in the back had fans in absolute hysterics.

"'Ave it!" Sharon muttered as she tasered Jenny once more.

"What the actual f?? Who randomly has a taser in their handbag?!" one posted.

Another said through the giggles: "Omg hahahaha I'm crying!" as a third penned: "Tasering Jenny in broad daylight, Sharon? There must be at least one witness out and about?" with a cry-laughing emoji.

"Are you kidding? She just happens to have a taser?" someone else typed through the giggles, while another said: "It's amazing what you can get on Amazon these days!"

"How f***ing long is that taser and why did no-one else see that happen?!" another social media user said, referring to how the taser wire had managed to stretch past the social distancing length of two metres.

Thankfully, Tim Metcalfe turned up to Jenny's rescue, and urged Sharon to call an ambulance – which she did, reluctantly.

Jenny had found out about Sharon's plot through some digging of her own, and had her connection to Harvey cemented in her mind when lawyer Imran confirmed Harvey was trying to lure Leanne out of her safe house.

"You're not dead. Not yet, anyway," Sharon later threatened Jenny while she lay recovering in the hospital, holding the button which would summon help away from the prone Jenny. "Are you gonna tell the nurse how the big bad lady tasered you?"

She threatened to tell Johnny about Jenny's affair with Ronnie – leaving her terrified into silence, especially as Johnny said he wouldn't be able to live without his wife.

Tim let poor Rita in on the shock news of Jenny's collapse, after being fobbed off that she'd just passed out in the street.

But it looks like Sharon's plot could be about to come to light regardless, as Rita listened to Jenny's frantic voicemail, which warned her against staying with Sharon.
