Eagle-eyed Coronation Street fans have been in hysterics this evening after an epic fail on screen was highlighted on social media.
In a scene where Liz McDonald answered her mobile phone, it looked like she had forgotten how it all worked.
Speaking to the police while in the Rovers Return, there was some wonder as to whether she could hear what was being said.
This was due to her holding the mobile phone upside down, which meant she was speaking into the earpiece.

The phone call was to confirm that her ex-husband Jim wasn’t going to be held in custody, along with partner Hannah.
Naturally, this news was enough to send Liz reeling but instead of viewers rallying around her, there was a glowing mistake that totally distracted those watching.
It started with one fan spotting that Liz was holding the mobile upside down and then that was all anyone could see.
One remarked on Twitter: "“Nice to see Liz can make phones calls while the phone is upside down. With earpiece near her mouth.”

Another called out Corrie for their mistake: “I’m such a phone nerd. Just paused Corrie because I saw Liz “on the phone” yet the phone was upside down!”
Others then joined the banter on Twitter as the fail was highlighted over and over.
It had been a heartbreaking episode of Corrie as well, with many viewers getting upset over the heartbreaking betrayal of Tim Metcalfe.
With his wife Sally incarcerated in prison, the upset and desperate Tim got drunk and ended in the arms of Sally’s sister, Gina.

Fans were distraught at the thought of Tim and Sally being the latest marriage in the soap to hit the rocks.
It’s a good job that Sally hasn’t turned to Liz for advice, as it might be that she will get a muffled response, especially if which way around the phone needs to be, hasn’t been sorted.
