Shane Nolan has sparked outrage after moaning about the extended rolling news coverage in the aftermath of Queen Elizabeth II’s death.
The 33-year-old son of Coleen Nolan and Shane Richie has said that he wants to be assured the coverage won’t see his dad’s return as Alfie Moon in EastEnders.
Shane took to social media to question the coverage and said that he “doesn’t understand” why there is constant news coverage on many channels.
He told his 44,000 followers on Twitter that he wanted to watch the BBC soap, tweeting: “I did love the queen, what a woman. I just don’t understand following the coffin around with cameras everywhere and all over TV all day.
“Now I know I know some people will be well into it and that’s fine but can anyone tell me what time @bbceastenders is on tonight. #alfiesback”.
Shane soon faced a backlash for his views and there was outrage among his followers for his seemingly unpopular thoughts on the current TV schedule.
One upset follower hit back at Shane, replying: “Absolutely disrespectful after all the Queen did over the years for the country I’d rather watch her safe arrival on her final journeys rather than EastEnders.”
Another shared their anger, tweeting: “I don’t understand the cameras following your mother everywhere either, but someone somewhere thinks the public want to see it.”
