Emmerdale viewers were left complaining during the latest episode of the ITV soap as Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) and Wendy Posner (Susan Cookson) tried to get intimate.
Bob suffered a heart attack recently and during his stint in hospital he learned that he has erectile dysfunction.
He said it had been concerning him for some time, but he hadn’t mentioned it to Wendy because he didn’t want her treating him like a patient.

Bob admitted he felt insecure about the situation and thought that Wendy had been driven into Liam Cavanagh’s (Jonny McPherson) arms because he wasn’t comfortable with the idea of having sex.
During Friday's (August 25) episode, Bob planned a night of passion with Wendy.
As she undressed her partner in the living room, the pair were interrupted by Bob's twins Cathy (Gabrielle Dowling) and Heath Hope (Sebastian Dowling).
Viewers at home couldn't believe their eyes and rushed to social media to discuss the latest instalment of the serial drama.
Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, one fan penned: "Bob getting intimate with Wendy pass me the sick bucket."
Another added: "As Bob and Wendy start total cringe moment … New warning symbol should appear on screen… Exploding volcano time again."
A third person said: "Should have been a pre show warning regarding Wendy & Bob."
While a fourth social media user wrote: "Lol Cathy & Heath walking in on Bob and Wendy getting intimate."
After his heart attack, Bob split up with Wendy but he later changed his mind and they got back together.

Actor Tony Audensaw admitted he was shocked when he first learnt about the affair storyline.
He told Digital Spy: "It's interesting with this relationship – it's the first time you've seen a woman cheat on Bob. It's mainly been the other way around over the years.
"So it's going to be interesting to see how it's going to impact him. Working with Cooky [Susan Cookson, who plays Wendy] has been absolutely brilliant, I've got to say.
"It's been joyful. So to hear that [Wendy] was going to be unfaithful, it was a bit of a shock when we'd only just got together!"
