A touching moment this evening when Mick talks to his son Johnny about being gay.

Earlier in the week we reported that numerous homophobic tweets had been sent after Gary Lucy and Sam Strike kissed for the first time on the Soap.

Pete Lawson who wrote the episode on Monday said on Twitter:

“2014, and gay teens kissing on a soap still draws complaints. Makes me even prouder to have written that ep.”
