These scenes sparked a huge reaction

Coronation Street viewers have been left feeling pretty emotional after Kate Connor and Rana Nazir finally declared their love and vowed to be together.

The secret lovers were discovered kissing by Rana’s husband Zeedan in Friday night’s episode, who was left furious at them continuing with their affair.

‘You’re making a total mug out of me, rubbing it in my face,’ he told the pair.

Rana (Bhavna Limbachia) stood up to him though and labelled him a ‘hypocrite’ following his earlier pass at Leanne Battersby.

She then defiantly revealed that she was determined to be with Kate (Faye Brookes) no matter what Zeedan thinks of it.

‘This so-called marriage is sad and hollow,’ Rana sobbed. ‘Kate means so much more to me. I want to be with her.

‘I know it’s not perfect and we’ll have to keep it a secret to start with, but at least you know it’s only a matter of time until we can be together properly.’

Finally a shocked Zeedan (Qasim Akhtar) was issued with an ultimatum from Rana – agree to remain ‘pretend’ married for another year so that he could get his ‘blood money’ or watch Rana walk away.

Coronation Street fans were left both ecstatic and moved at Kate and Rana – or ‘Kana’ as they’re known to many – making the bold step, so much so that ‘Kate and Rana’ was trending on Twitter during the episode.

‘SO MANY FEELINGS. So happy they’re back together, these episodes were amazing,’ one fan commented, whilst another wrote: ‘I’m just gonna be crying over todays Kana scenes for the next 84 years.’

And one praised the acting in the scene by posting: ‘That scene was so powerful and gave me goosebumps! Rana is finally standing up for who she is! #LoveIsLove’

So will the course of true love run smoothly now for Kate and Rana? We can’t wait to see what happens next…
