But paedophile Tony King (Chris Coghill) didn't find the situation the least bit funny when he walked in.

Rosie Webster, Tony Gordon, Coronation Street

Rosie Webster (Helen Flanagan) was way out of her league playing the femme fatale with Tony Gordon (Gray O'Brien). She lured him up to a hotel room where he found her draped seductively across the bed wearing not a lot. Tony told her to cover up, she was a silly schoolgirl, and he was in love with Carla. Humiliated, Rosie had one more ace up her sleeve and showed him the mobile phone footage of Carla and Liam Connor kissing. Tony was stunned - but didn't react quite the way Rosie expected…
