But then there is an even bigger shock in store for Will when, unknown to him, daughter Phoebe later learns what he is really like when she overhears Will admit to assaulting Cristiano.

Will had managed to manipulate Phoebe who completely blindsided by her love for her father into believing Cristiano was the one doing harm in their relationship, and that he was actually the victim.

His lies drove a wedge between Phoebe and her mother Mairead, who had supported Cristiano.

But then, in next Thursday’s instalment, Phobe overhears Will saying: “I can smash my head off this table right now and say you did it, and Phoebe would believe me. You should just walk away from my family,” he adds in a threatening manner, as an upset Phoebe stands up with tears in her eyes.

Viewers who had been incensed after Will walked away will be hoping he gets his comeuppance. There was a massive social media reaction to the stunning verdict in Will and Cristiano's courtroom drama that followed a lengthy story line which covered the very difficult topic of domestic violence.

“It will be interesting to see what happens after an unjust verdict has been delivered. How will people act towards Will/Christiano in their community, workplace etc. It has been rarely done on a TV show so well,” one person tweeted afterwards.

Another added: “Let’s hope the Court of Public Opinion finds Will Casey guilty. He needs to know he’s no longer welcome in Carrigstown. They MUST make his life HELL. He has to go and take his hostile daughter with him.”

One other person said: “For some reason, I just have a good feeling that there’s a twist in this Fair City storyline and that Will slips up for everyone to see. This isn’t the end and Cris will get what he deserves. If I were one of the ‘I’m never watching it again’ people, I would just in case.”

However, critics also expressed their disquiet at the result with one person writing: "Fair City ..not a great message to send out with domestic violence.”

Another added: “How does that encourage anyone to come forward about domestic violence/abuse when they person that was abusing the person get away with it. I'm so disappointed."
