Coronation Street fans found a spark of rather unexpected humour in the tragic storyline between Emma Brooker and her new beau Curtis Delamere.
It had recently been unveiled that Curtis has a heart condition, which could prove fatal at any moment.
But Emma made a few slip-ups in treating him differently, as she told his boss Debbie that he might be too stressed to work – leaving Curtis feeling betrayed.
Emma was enjoying a latte in Roy's when Curtis came in to chat with her about her slip-up.
But Emma didn't realise that her hot beverage had left a foam moustache on her upper lip.

Fans were left in hysterics by the 'tash, and flocked to Twitter to post: "Emma's coffee moustache!" with cry-laughing emojis.
Someone else giggled: "Emma with her frothy moustache!", as a third fan said: "Emma is hilarious!"
Others were more concerned as to how Emma didn't realise there was foam covering her face, and raced to tweet about the blunder: "She must know she's got that on her top lip ffs, how ridiculous! #Corrie," someone wrote.
"As if she couldn't feel that on her lip!" another fan posted.

A third fan agreed: "There is no way you'd not feel that above your lip."
It came as a bit of comic relief in Emma's tragic storyline as boyfriend Curtis revealed his diagnosis – but some fans are still certain there's something untoward about him.
Some reckon he could be lying in order to get his hands on the money Emma's dad Steve is raising in memory of his late son Oliver.
"Got a bad feeling about Emma's boyfriend, seems a bit far fetched but what if he's lying about this illness and is just after that charity money?" one fan theorised on Twitter.
More still are convinced Curtis has a link to jailed sex offender Ray Crosby – and could even be his son.
When Curtis first began working at the bistro, fans thought he reminded them of a certain silver-haired owner, and swarmed to Twitter to comment their theories.
"I think Curtis has something to do with Ray???" one viewer penned on social media.
Another chimed in: "Oh my god, Curtis is Ray's son!"
"Wonder if he's anything to do with Ray…"
Coronation Street continues on Wednesday at 7:30pm on ITV.
