As the police are on the streets and a 34-year-old secret is revealed in Weatherfield, Coronation Street is in for a week of surprises.
ITV teasers have hinted at a week in which Debbie Webster and Ryan Connor are in trouble when their scheme to solve their financial problems backfires, while Jodie Pregner makes her debut on Coronation Street as George’s sister.
In other soap news, Stu Carpenter will be revealed on the ITV soap the following week as Yasmeen Metcalfe learns the truth about his 34-year-old secret.
Here’s what to expect on the street when Coronation Street returns for three more dramatic episodes next week.
Ryan arrested as Debbie’s money scam goes wrong
Following an event in one of her hotels where Ed was electrocuted in a terrifying tragedy that revealed Ray’s shady shortcuts, Debbie (Sue Devaney) has been struggling.
She revealed her plans to fake a break-in in order to recover money from the insurance to Ryan (Ryan Prescott) and offered him a deal.
Ryan is going to be arrested on the soap next week, according to ITV spoilers, as the duo’s scheme goes horribly wrong.
Ryan sets up a break-in at the Bistro as part of Debbie’s scheme to save her finances so she can file an insurance claim.
Ryan decides to fuse the electrics and go for the money despite Debbie having second thoughts about the plan later.
The CCTV, however, has a backup circuit and is unaffected by the power outage; as a result, the film quickly identifies Ryan as the perpetrator, who is then detained on suspicion of theft.
Then, in private, Ronnie will accuse Debbie of planning an insurance scam, and Ryan will contact Debbie from the police station and threaten to implicate her.
Will Debbie be truthful, or is Ryan doomed to failure?
Yasmeen kicks Stu out as past secret exposed
The Gazette reporter Suki speaks with Yasmeen, Stu, Dev, and Alya about their food waste campaign, but the tale of Yasmeen giving destitute Stu a lifeline ultimately dominates the newspaper article.
Following the publicity, Stu is terrified to see his ex-wife Lucy at Speed Daal, where she first warns him to avoid his daughter Bridget before spilling a major surprise.
When Yasmeen learns the information that Stu has been attempting to conceal, how will she respond?
Jodie Prenger makes debut as George’s sister
George has had a busy week. He can be seen battling with a competitor undertaker before receiving an offer of £400,000 to sell the company.
Then, following a tooth injury, George becomes over-the-top on powerful painkillers and collapses in the back of a funeral car just before the service is set to begin.
Glenda, George’s sister, suddenly appears on the scene and assumes control of the situation at this point.
Fortunately, everything goes according to plan at the funeral, and George is overjoyed to meet his sibling and introduce Glenda to Eileen.
Tim and Sally’s big bust-up
Tim is told to go to the Casino Night on his own after Sally notices that he has been visiting pornographic websites.
Later, Tim receives a message from Sally informing him that she has prepared the spare bed for him.
The following day, Tim makes peace-making efforts but they are unsuccessful, so Sally suggests they take a break.
Tim leaves his wife alone and goes to Victoria Garden to vent to Aggie, who advises him to talk to Sally about his troubles.
Tim returns home and tells Sal everything about his dread of dying, but he doesn’t admit that Aggie prodded him into making the revelation.
Ken gives Wendy a second chance
Even though Ken appeared to have bid Wendy farewell the previous week, he will next be seen asking her to a coffee shop.
Following a drink, Ken offers Wendy a lunch and she accepts, soon sharing his lasagne as he confides that he understands how it feels to be alone because he still misses Deirdre.
