An innuendo-filled 'Coronation Street' app has been described as "smut"
A new 'Coronation Street' game has been labelled "smut" by a podcast.
The innuendo-filled app allows gamers to help Bet Lynch renovate the Rovers Return pub, and is loaded with mischievous lines that have split opinion, the Daily Star newspaper reports.
In one clip, Bet – who was played by Julie Goodyear – says her entrance hasn't been so "tidy" for a long time.
The double entendre prompted a response from the 'Conversation Street Podcast' Twitter account.
The tweet read: "Now that’s definitely rude."
In another clip – which shows the pub undergoing a refurbishment – Bet says: "By ‘eck, we put in some elbow grease there! But it’s paid off, the floor is dryer than Annie Walker's sherry."
Despite the game attracting mixed reviews, the 'Conversation Street Podcast' admitted to being a fan of the "smut".
The podcast said on Twitter: "Filth I tell you. We’re loving all the dialogue in this.
"All of the little references AND the smut, of course. (sic)"
The divisive game is simply called 'Coronation Street' and is available on Apple and android platforms.
The blurb for the game explains: "Welcome to 'Coronation Street'! It’s time for you to step onto the cobbles and help Ken Barlow, Bet Lynch and many of your favourite characters in this new crossword game based on the UK’s favourite continuing drama 'Coronation Street'!
"Help Ken give his old house a whole new look. Design it, decorate it and unearth buried treasures from Ken’s past."
The game had been officially licensed by the ITV soap, with a spokesperson describing it as a "lovely bit of light-hearted entertainment".
The spokesperson added: "We’re excited to have been able to launch to the global market – with a cheeky nod to the spirit of the show."
