CORONATION Street viewers were left stunned during tonight’s double bill after Chesney Brown jilted Sinead Tinker at the altar.
The kebab shop manager and knicker-stitcher have been dating for several years, and after surprising her with an engagement last year, the pair looked like they were set.
Sinead was left gutted as Chesney stopped the wedding
Chesney has gone to great lengths to keep hold of his love – including trying to frame love rival Daniel Osbourne for assault by smacking himself in the face with a brick.
However, viewers became convinced that Daniel would try and put a halt to the wedding, especially after the pair shared a longing glance as Sinead got in the car in her gown.
But bosses dealt everyone a shock twist by having Chesney get the jitters – in the middle of his vows.
Despite something like this normally proving to be a sad occasion on a soap, most viewers actually expressed their RELIEF that Chesney had pulled the plug on the marriage – albeit at a really inconvenient time.
The insecure groom admitted he was scared she would leave him
Chesney is an idiot. Sinead…. count your blessings hun! You'd have a boring life anyway #Corrie

"I do feel a bit bad for Sinead tbh @itvcorrie Chesney shouldn't have done that to her #Corrie if he felt like that he should've told her sooner," said one fan.
Another said: "Chesney has done the right thing. Sinead doesn't deserve him at all #corrie"
The congregation were seen in shock at the moment Sinead had proudly said her vows but it all became too much for Chesney

While one fan disagreed and added: "Chesney is an idiot. Sinead…. count your blessings hun! You'd have a boring life anyway #Corrie"
Meanwhile, Carla Connor, who heard about the drama, was quick to run and tell Daniel that he could be in with a chance of winning the snubbed bride back.
