Coronation Street viewers in hysterics as Weatherfield’s dating app WhamBam is revealed

CORONATION Street fans were left in hysterics during last night's show – after Eva Price revealed the not-so-subtle name of Weatherfield's dating app.

While singles in the real world can rely on apps like Bumble, Tinder and Grindr, Corrie residents can arrange their hookups on an app called WhamBam.

Hours after dumping boyfriend Adam Barlow, Eva paid a visit to his flat – and discovered that he had a woman with him.

Eva told Adam all about her secret pregnancy – but it was too late; a woman wearing one of his shirts emerged from the bathroom, leaving the barmaid in tears.

When she returned to the Rovers, Eva told Toyah and Peter that Adam had been romancing a "slapper he found on WhamBam".

WhamBam – presumably a derivative of the phrase, "wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am" – is described by the Urban Dictionary as "The act of having sex without even bothering to try to get the woman to orgasm. Usually lasts for about five seconds."

Naturally, soap viewers took to Twitter for a good giggle, revealing they can't believe people on the street use such strangely-named apps.

One wrote: "Classic quote on Corrie tonight. 'some slapper from Wham Bam' 😂😂😂😂@Cath_Tyldesley"

A second viewer said: "So in Corrie the hook-up app is called Wham Bam. Downloading"

A third said: "Wham Bam???? 😂 why has no one thought of this name?! #corrie"

A fourth quipped: "I take it 'Wham Bam' is Corrie's version to Tinder 😂😂😂😂 @itvcorrie @Tinder #corrie #tinder #whambam"

A fifth joked: "@itvcorrie “Some slapper e’d found on Wham Bam.” My heart goes out to Eva but that made me laugh."

Elsewhere on Corrie, The Sun's Bizarre column has revealed that Suranne Jones is returning to the soap – for Comic Relief, after hearing that her former screen husband Steve McDonald, played by Simon Gregson, had a secret ­lovechild last year.

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights on ITV
