ITV Coronation Street fans have been left divided after Daniel Osbourne turned violent towards pupil and neighbour Max Turner after Max trashed Daniel’s flat.
The pair have been involved in an on-off feud for months.
Monday’s episode saw Max’s dad David Platt forced to tell Max about his traumatic rape ordeal after Daniel accidentally let slip that something had happened to David during a school workshop about consent.
After telling Max about his ordeal, David angrily confronted Daniel who apologised for his mistake.
Max was shown to also be feeling angry towards Daniel in Tuesday’s episode and despite Daniel apologising to him, Max reignited their feud by trashing Daniel’s flat.
Daniel returned home and saw red when he realised that Max had damaged a precious memento that belonged to his late wife Sinead – who died of cancer.
