Fans of CORONATION Street have been debating a very important issue regarding Cassie Plummer’s allegedly flawless teeth.
In June of this year, Claire Sweeney, a former Brookside actor, joined the soap opera as the drug addict.
But because she was wearing so many white pearls, viewers began to wonder if they were in keeping with her persona.
The long-running soap’s writers appear to have made an effort to address the issue in Wednesday night’s episode, though.
As the daughter of Evelyn Plummer (Maureen Lipman), Claire, 52, assumed the role of Tyrone Dobbs’ (Alan Halsall) estranged mother.
In scenes that were broadcast this week, the mechanic attempted to remind Hope, the daughter he has with Fiz Brown (Jennie McAlpine), to wash her teeth.
Cassie wanted to make sure people understood her point by stressing that if she didn’t take good care of her gnashers, she would have to pay a lot of money to the dentist to get them corrected.
Look after them; I don’t want you to have to spend money the way I have had to through the years, Cassie yelled.
In her own words, “These have cost me a fortune.”
Viewers have previously posted on social media to talk about how, despite Claire’s superb acting, her outward attractiveness had somewhat distracted them.
One person commented that, “For someone who has been abusing drugs for so long, Cassie has bright white teeth.”
Someone another said, “Did the makeup team’s talent not extend to Claire Sweeney’s teeth?”
Another tweeted: “There’s no way Claire Sweeney is a drug addict with those teeth. She’s brilliant.”
Four people simultaneously commented: “Tyrone’s mum.. perfect veneers, Botox and eyebrows done.. who cast Claire Sweeney as a druggy?”
