A scene where Coronation Street’s Rosie Webster strips down to her underwear in the middle of the road has been cut from tonight’s episode.

Actress Helen Flanagan wore a basque, stockings and suspenders for the plot – which saw Rosie trying to tempt ex Luke Strong back by revealing all.

A show spokesperson has said that the scene was deleted because the episode was too long, but newspapers including The Mirror have suggested that it was cut as it was too saucy for the soap.

The clip will now be shown on Coronation Street’s website after Friday’s episodes have gone to air.

Helen said: “Rosie is outrageous and such a madam and I love playing her. I get to do things that I would never dare do.

“I am delighted that the website are showing this scene as I had such fun playing it.”
