His response was brilliant.

Monday night's instalment of the show saw the couple kissing passionately on a bed in a hotel room.

The response from many viewers was positive with some people taking to twitter to praise the bosses and writers on the show for airing the scene.

Daniel Brocklebank, who plays Billy, thanked fans for the support he received for the scene while acknowledging the negativity.

There was, unfortunately, a lot of negativity surrounding Bruno Langley and Daniel's romantic scene.

One twitter user described the scene of the couple as 'sickening'.

He then added a more serious, but brilliant come back which deserves a round of applause.

He then shared a final message of gratitude after this previous tweet received a huge amount of positive attention.

Last month, Todd and Billy shared a kiss on the show, which lead TV regulator OfCom to receive 67 complaints. But OfCom confirmed that there would be no investigation as the scenes (obviously) didn't break any rules.

We love that Coronation Street is portraying real life in their show and representing love and we hope to see more of it on the soap.
