Ordinary Lies took a particularly grim turn last night, as Jack-the-lad womaniser Rick (Shazad Latif) got far too close to colleague Mike’s (Max Beesley) 15-year-old daughter. The chilling BBC1 tale had a huge reaction on Twitter, with viewers declaring it the most uncomfortable yet most absorbing show drama on TV right now…
Many viewers found the episode gripping…

And it’s not only mere mortals who were tweeting about last night’s episode
X Factor’s Lauren Platt was into it…

As was reality star Mark Wright (although, possibly he’s slightly biased given that his fiancee Michelle Keegan is in the show…)
WOW!!!! I’m on the edge of my seat watching #OrdinaryLies

Even Corrie doesn’t have as many twists and turns as this drama…

But some viewers were sceptical about the controversial storyline…
I really like this drama series.. But I do NOT get this storyline. It’s very weird. And inappropriate. #OrdinaryLies

So #ordinarylies on BBC1 was good up until they did a Paedophile storyline… Wtf is that all about?
