Corrie fans are hysterical over Audrey’s son’s accent as Stephen returns after 15 years

Coronation Street fans were left baffled on Friday night when Audrey Roberts’ son Stephen Reid returned to the ITV soap opera after 15 years.

The latest episode of Corrie saw actor Todd Boyce reprise his role in dramatic fashion as he found Audrey unconscious in the living room.

Audrey (Sue Nicholls) had fallen the night before and been stuck under a motorbike all night as her family discussed how to solve her drinking problem.

Stephen was the one who found his mother after she arrived at the salon to see Elaine Jones (Paula Wilcox) trying to get in.

He ended up breaking down the door and was stunned to find his mother collapsed on the floor.

Stephen then reunited with the Platt family when an ambulance arrived for Audrey, and was furious that her mother had been left alone all night without anyone noticing.

Gail Platt (Helen Worth) looked stunned that Stephen was back, but he wasn’t impressed with his brother at all.

“Never mind, and mom? How did you let this happen? Didn’t any of you even notice that she was missing?

He then got into the back of the ambulance when the paramedic confirmed that only one of them could accompany Audrey.

However, viewers were more interested in Stephen’s accent than Audrey fighting for her life.

Taking to Twitter, one person posted, “WTF is that #Corrie accent.”

Another said: “Stephen thinks he’s in an 80s action movie #Corrie.”

A third tweeted: “Okay his voice will piss off the [angry face emoji] out of me, please don’t give it a lot of lines lol.”

And a fourth joked: “Stephen wastes no time showing off his vocal range.”

Someone else wrote: “Uuum! Stephen’s game is a bit OTT. You’re not into Dynasty mate.”

Stephen is Audrey’s biological son but she was forced to give him up for adoption after he was born.

Stephen was adopted by Malcolm Reid and his wife Joyce Reid, and they later emigrated to Canada, which explains his accent.

He made visits to Coronation Street in 1996, 1997 and 2007, with Gail’s family visiting him in Milan from time to time.

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8 p.m. on ITV and ITV Hub.
