Sally had taken a pause from filming while she performed on Dancing on Ice, but the 58-year-old made a return as Sally Webster in Friday’s episode.
The return shows her with husband Tim Met Calfe, played by Joe Duttine, 51, in a steamy scene.
Sally and Tim reunited amid the couple’s sex ban after his open heart surgery a few weeks back.
Despite the ‘cringey’ scene, viewers were distracted by what appeared to be a “red mark” on Sally’s face and took to social media, the Mirror reported.
One Corrie viewer tweeted: “What’s the red mark on Sally’s face?” Another question in a post on the platform: “What’s Sally done to her face? Looks all bruised.”
“What’s wrong with Sally’s face? One side done [sic] look right does it?,” asked one viewer, whilst another responded: “Noticed that too. Really big lump. Hope she’s OK in real life.”
One fan speculated that it might have been sunburn, whilst others thought it could be an injury or an “ice burn” that she had sustained whilst on the ITV skating competition.
This included a viewer who tweeted: “Did Sally fall on the ice?” In response to this, one person said in a subsequent tweet: “I was just thinking the same. She must’ve.”
The Mirror approached reps of Sally Dynevor for comment on the speculation surrounding her appearance in the latest episode of Coronation Street.
Sally was among the contestants on the latest series of Dancing on Ice, with her having been partnered with professional skater Matt Evers, 46, for the popular show.
The pair made it through five weeks of the competition before being voted out during the sixth week. She had been in the skate-off for two consecutive weeks.
