Coronation Street fans were in uproar tonight after Sally Metcalfe was found guilty of fraud, money laundering and bribery in perhaps the most unfair soap trial since Deirdre Barlow’s.
The former major of Weatherfield, played by Sally Dynevor, collapsed once the verdict was read out.
"No, no, no," her shocked husband Tim was heard muttering.
Sally’s daughter Sophie was seen crying as the judge told her that she would be taken back to jail while he considered her sentence.
Sally was in tears as she cried out: "I didn’t do it, I didn’t do it."

Both Gina and Sophie held their hands to their mouths as Tim stared on in shock.
And fans were seething with rage and flocked to Twitter to express their outrage.
One tweeted: "What!!!!!!!!"
While another commented: "Nooooooooooo!! Sally can’t go down. She didn’t do it!!"
A third wrote: "I’m crying here why have they sent sally down #corrie."
Another seethed: "Omg Sally has been sent to prison for a crime she did not do."
"FREE SALLY," another demanded.
This comes after Sally’s passionate plea about her innocence.
She told the jury: "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!"
