Another shared: "Now that was a plot twist!! Did not expect Spider to be an undercover cop. Great end scene with Martin Hancock & @VixMyers."

A third penned: "Whattt spider is an undercover cop? .. Didn't see that one coming! .. Liking this storyline .. Well done #Corrie #ITV .. It's gonna end in tears.."

However some were not impressed with the epic plot twist, with one viewer writing: "So Spider in #Corrie is an undercover detective. In 2016 he was still in Peru as Emily moved to be with him. In 2019 Emily says Spider is fine. So, in 3 years, he has come back to Britain, got a job in the police and has become a detective. Total s***e. I'm finished Corrie."

As Toyah's upcoming trial finally airs this week, actress Georgia Taylor has revealed that things are not looking too good for the character who is currently being accused of murdering her husband Imran Habeeb.

Speaking to the Metro, Georgia said Toyah will be left with no one by her side.

The Corrie star shared: "She has very little support.

"Spider (Martin Hancock)’s done a runner, all eight legs of him, off he’s popped. She’s basically got Leanne, that’s it."
