Corrie fans call for newcomer to be sacked over Peter Barlow liver selfie

Coronation Street fans have called for Dr Thorne to be given the boot after he took a selfie with Peter Barlow as he operated on him.

Peter received a new liver last summer after he sustained serious damage to his own because of his troubled alcohol addiction.

His transplant storyline was recently revisited and during Monday's (May 9) episode of the ITV soap, fans were left raging after a photo emerged.

Peter and his partner Carla Connor were shown a photo of the former on the surgery table, while his doctor, Henry Thorne, posed for a selfie holding his liver.

After Peter saw the picture, viewers watching the ITV soap fumed on social media.

One fan raged: "Taking a selfie of someone's new liver before you operate on them! F***ing a*****e!!

Another wrote: "Wow? What an absolute di***ead of a surgeon. Fancy taking a selfie with Peter’s liver."

A third person posted: "Dr Thorne should be sacked for doing that. Taking a selfie holding Peter's liver is nasty."

While a fourth said: "I am absolutely disgusted…. He took a selfie? Good grief. What a sicko!"
