Corrie fans were left shocked in the wake of Monday night's episode, after Evelyn Plummer poked fun at Holly Willoughby's teeth, referring to the This Morning presenter as: "Her with the teeth." Evelyn – played by Maureen Lipman – is Fiz Brown's mother-in-law and isn't a fan of the fact that Fiz home schools her daughter, Faith, since she left a behavioural school in Birmingham. Since then Fiz has been trying to get her back into school, and was excited after receiving a letter inviting her to discuss her daughter's education.

Even Evelyn chimed in, saying: "Well they'd better get a move on. Sitting there in her pyjamas." Fiz fired back that she'd already planned out all of Faith's lessons for the day, but Evelyn wasn't having any of it, remarking: "Oh, let me guess - 9.30, Dora the Explorer, 10.30 This Morning with what's his name and her with the teeth. I don't know whether they get on, those two."

Corrie fans were left in stitches 

Evelyn's comments about Holly sent Corrie fans on a Twitter frenzy. One wrote: "I'm absolutely howling at Evelyn. The best thing to happen to Corrie in years," and another added: "Love Evelyn 10.30 this morning with what his face @Schofe and the one with the teeth I’ve heard many different names for @hollywills never the one with the teeth before  #ThisMorning @itvcorrie #CoronationStreet #Corrie @thismorning."

It seems Evelyn's comments left one Twitter user a little confused, however. The unsure Corrie fan tweeted: "'Her with the teeth' – is that Holly or Ruth?"
