Coronation Street viewers stunned by awful child abuse as Evelyn punishes Hope

Coronation Street viewers were stunned tonight by some horrific child abuse.

Evelyn Plummer was seen dishing out a brutal punishment to her grandaughter Hope Stape.

Tyrone’s no-nonsense grandma was practically torturing the young schoolgirl as she threatened to use violence on her if she misbehaved.

Evelyn, who had begrudgingly agreed to babysit Hope after she refused to go to school, was caught pushing her face up against the wall.

She snarled: "Keep your nose pressed up against the wall you wicked girl. You move one muscle I’ll come down on you so hard."

Fiz and Tyrone were appalled when they came into the living room and witnessed the shocking ordeal.

Terrified Hope immediately ran over to her horrified mum, while Tyrone demanded answers from his nan.

Unapologetic Evelyn insisted Hope needed to be punished for knocking over her jigsaw puzzle and ripping the head off Ruby’s new doll.

The battleaxe has made it very obvious that she strongly dislikes the unruly brat, who was suspended last week for biting her teacher.

She called Hope a "naughty girl" who doesn’t deserve any treats, before buying a present for sister Ruby.

Rita was shocked when Evelyn said that Ruby is her favourite while Hope was standing just yards away.

She got Ruby an expensive new toy and some chocolate for passing her spelling test, while Hope was left with absolutely nothing.

Evelyn explained that Hope was in the doghouse and that she wanted her to stop being "such a nasty little madam".

But she really lost her temper when naughty Hope threw her jigsaw on the floor and stole one of her biscuits.

Shocked Coronation Street viewers took to Twitter after watching the brutal scenes.

One viewer said: "What a horrible woman. Boot her out"

"Keep that nose against the wall Jesus Evelyn bit far, you old bat," added another.

A third said: "Evelyn is more evil than the kids!"

Coronation Street airs tonight on ITV at 7.30pm and 8.30pm
