Coronation Streets fans were disgusted by Nick Tilsley and David Platt’s ‘sexist and misogynistic’ remarks on tonight’s first episode.
Horrified Corrie viewers slammed David Platt and Nick Tilsley for ‘objectifying women’ with some vile comments.
The brothers came up with a plan to hire women for their new barbers purely based on their looks to attract customers.
Nasty Nick said head stylist at barbers round corner was a "complete stunner", while dumb David asked who the "mystery hottie" was.
Nick, who is funding this new venture with his own gran’s stolen savings, called the stylist their "star signing" and said punters were queuing round the block for her.

The businessman suggested hiring someone "drop dead gorgeous" in a bid to get customers through the door.
Nick said they needed to headhunt someone who meets their exact criteria of attractiveness.
Cautious David asked: "What’s that? Blonde hair and a big rack?"
Pulling a face, Nick replied: "Don’t be so vulgar. She doesn’t have to have blonde hair."
The disgusting pigs then headed to Audrey’s salon to pinch unsuspecting Emma for their barbers.
This left Bethany upset as she wanted to jump ship and join them – but was unaware of their intentions.
Later in the pub, Nick considered hiring someone purely based on their "sexy name".
"I can’t help if men are shallow. If we’re going to run a business we have to give them what they want," said Nick.
Things got awkward when Bethany revealed she had spoken to Audrey and she was fine with her working for them.
Dropping his brother in it, David explained: "He wanted to hire a bit of totty to get the punters in."
The pair said they didn’t want punter "ogling" their niece, but stunned Bethany claimed they were pimping out their staff.
Shona and Leanne threatened to start a "war" when they found out what their boyfriends were doing.
Disgusted Corrie viewers took to Twitter after watching the scenes.
One viewer said: "I can’t believe Nick and David were basically objectifying women. What about gender equality ?"
"Bit sexiest there Nick," added another.
A third said: "Seriously could Nick & David literally BE anymore totally sexiest?"
