Shane Nolan sparks outrage with Queen comments: I dont understand why its all over TV

Coleen Nolan and Shane Richie's son Shane Nolan has sparked outrage after saying he "doesn't understand" the rolling news coverage surrounding Queen Elizabeth II's death and has asked when EastEnders will be airing.

The 33 year old took to Twitter to ask his followers when he would be able to watch the BBC One soap, which his dad has recently returned to as Alfie Moon.

He wrote to his 44,000 followers: "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"

His followers were quick to respond to his tweet, with one writing: "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."

A second said: "I don’t understand the cameras following your mother everywhere either, but someone somewhere thinks the public want to see it."

While a third said: "EastEnders on every week our wonderful queen needs the respect she deserves so I’m all for following what’s happening it’s history. Catch up was invented for occasions like this."

Other fans wrote: "No respect" and "We’ve had to endure years of Shane Richie being all over TV all day."

However, some of this fans did guide him to find that the episode where his dad returned to Walford was already uploaded to BBC iPlayer, but Shane responded: "Nah it’s not the same."

Others did agree with Shane, with one writing: "its kind of full on mourning, have to say, despite my love and respect for our Queen, I had to turn everything off yesterday & just get some time out.

"Was kind of getting into my head to the point I was confused about how I felt. Don’t follow soaps but sure yr Dad is great in it."

A second said: "I agree. It's like the circus has come to town. And how is that respect mobile phones everywhere they turn. Let them grieve in private. I think they have had to do this to try and save the monarchy."

A third wrote: "I know what your saying I love it as it’s history but it’s quite boring In some parts, can’t wait for 9pm."
