That is just fabulous. Clearly she is not someone you'd want to mess with.

Appended below is a piece from today's BBC website. Granted that (judging by this report) Rangers fans seem to be completely devoid of any kind of sense of humour, I guess they won't be amused by The Optimistic Nun...

Coronation Street bosses have changed the script for an episode of the soap after complaints from Rangers fans.

Supporters complained after the character Tony Gordon - played by Scottish actor Gray O'Brien - made a jibe about the Glasgow club.

O'Brien's character had said: "I could no more be interested in Rosie Webster than I could support Glasgow Rangers."

An ITV spokeswoman confirmed that after "dozens" of complaints, the script for a forthcoming episode had been changed.

ITV said that line seemed "to have caused some upset".

One of the character's lines in a future episode - reported to be a remark that he was allergic to "warm beer, the English national anthem and Glasgow Rangers" - has now been dropped.

Perhaps she should have popped into Black and Lizars next door first to get some new specs before picking her spot!
