Viewers have been left feeling seriously grossed out by one particular scene in Netflix new erotic thriller series Obsession.

The four-part series, which landed on Netflix earlier this month, centres on doctor William Farrow (played by Richard Armitage) who is seemingly happily married to wife Ingrid (Indira Varma) with two grown up children - Jay (Rish Shah) and Sally (Sonera Angel). You can see a trailer for the show here:

However, his life is turned upside down when son Jay introduces his new girlfriend Anna (Charlie Murphy) and he finds himself developing an unhealthy obsession with the younger woman.

The series doesn’t shy away from steamy scenes, but there’s one part in particular that has had viewers squirming into their seats.

In the scene, William ransacks a hotel room that Anna had stayed in a desperate attempt to find anything belonging to her.

Unable to satisfy himself by finding any of her belongings, William does manage to grab a pillow that seemingly still has her scent on and… well… he doesn’t hold back.

The horny doc, bites down on, sniffs and rubs himself on the pillow - a bit like a naughty dog - and the whole thing left viewers feeling a little bit weird.

Posting on Twitter one person said: “The pillow in Obsession is disgusting.”

Another wrote: “The pillow scene in Netflix’s new series Obsession is beyond cringe!”

A third commented: “​​I watched that new Netflix show Obsession and honestly I regretted it so bad. Stupid plot, dumb ending, and I’m traumatised by the pillow scene.”

While someone else joked: “After watching Obsession on Netflix, I will now be bringing my own pillow to hotels.”

And the star of the scene has recently revealed that the whole thing was basically improvised on the day.

In an interview with Metro, Armitage said: “It was really unexpected because it was written as quite a different scene.

“There was a tissue with her imprint of her lipstick on which we didn’t feel necessarily worked.

“I was really conscious that it shouldn’t be in any way comedic so we sort of left it quite open and it was a bit of an improvisation, actually.”

He went on: “Charlie had – without me knowing – sprayed her scent that she’d been wearing throughout the shoot into different parts of the bed and I just got the sense of it, and that’s where the scene just opened. But the recording it wasn’t too planned, actually.”
