7 Coronation Street upcoming week spoilers
1. Audrey’s shocking confession
During afternoon tea with friends Rita Tanner (Barbara Knox) and Ken Barlow, Audrey drops a terrible surprise (William Roache). As Claudia Colby (Rula Lenska) and Charles, who are having a disagreement, join them.
Later, the gang consoles Rita and Claudia after Rita recalls Audrey’s recent birthday.
There is a horrified hush when Audrey suddenly says that she attempted suicide a few weeks ago until a waiter breaks it with a cake and a song of Happy Birthday. Who will respond, and how?
As the week goes on, Audrey tells her loved ones that she intends to completely revamp the salon, spending no money on anything. Stephen believes that Ken and Rita are not being completely honest when he breaks the news to them.
When he questions his mother, Audrey tells a falsehood about having a brief health concern.
Audrey states that she’s not in a rush as Stephen advises that she sign the trust fund paperwork. Will she seek treatment after attempting to end her life, and is she really as fine as she seems?
2. Stephen is lying to his family
After failing to persuade Audrey to turn up her money, Stephen maintains a front while assisting at the factory office.
Niece When Bailey advises that the Underworld website needs to be updated, Sarah Barlow makes the decision to phone Lorenzo, Stephen’s web designer.
Stephen, though, discourages her by promising to handle it himself. Later, Sarah says she finally called Lorenzo and found out he owes six months’ worth of wages.
Stephen makes up the story that he withheld Lorenzo’s pay after discovering his theft of company funds.
Sarah is thrilled by Stephen’s work on the internet with his little great-nephew Max Turner. But given that Stephen is obviously no longer as wealthy as he claims to be, how long will it be before his lies are exposed?
3. Zeedan is on a mission
Zeedan wants Craig to dig out more after learning from him that the detective Stu accused of persecution took an early retirement under false pretenses.
In prison, Stu writes to Zeedan and his grandmother Yasmeen Metcalfe (Shelley King), pleading for them to come see him.
Zeedan however persists in trying to delve deeper into Stu’s claim that he didn’t kill the young girl while Yasmeen tears them up and discards them.
Zeedan goes to visit Stu after Craig says that he might soon be released from jail. Stu discusses his case papers with Zeedan in an effort to establish his innocence.
Zeedan approaches attorney Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson) to ask for Stu’s files, but Yasmeen is upset when Adam admits he has submitted the request.
When Yasmeen confronts Zeedan about his betrayal after giving a speech about domestic abuse to the attendees of her fundraiser, Stu calls him. He begs Yasmeen to take his call, but she cuts him off right away.
Zeedan persists and meets with Adam, who informs him that it would cost £1,200 to access Stu’s case files. Alya agrees when Zeedan begs her to provide a hand so they can divide the fees. The two give Adam money so they can access the information, but are they acting morally? What will they discover?
4. Aaron reveals a secret
Aaron rushes away when Summer calls to ask to speak with him at the garage. She finds him there with a thick lip.
He yells at her when she catches up to him. Aaron apologizes to Summer afterwards, explaining the reason for his behavior and his terrible wounds.
Although Aaron says he periodically snaps, his father has been physically assaulting him and is an alcoholic.
Aaron is obviously a young man in need of protection, but will he be able to flee the terrible circumstances at home? Could we meet his father at some point and learn what he has to cope with for ourselves?
In light of the direction this plot is taking, he might not be at his best right now if he stays with Summer.
5. Summer collapses yet again!
Summer’s A Level grades are messed up; she receives A*s in French and Math but a fail in English after being caught cheating. Summer collapses once more as Aaron arrives to pick her up for their vacation, making poor Aaron anxious.
She informs him that she unintentionally forgot to take her insulin when she awakens. Later, after running with Todd Grimshaw (Gareth Pierce) at the tram stop, the two are returning home and explain that they missed their flight.
Aaron searches through Summer’s bag at the apartment and is surprised by what he discovers. But what finding did he make? Are the two teenagers as compatible as they once seemed to be given that they are each dealing with their own problems?
6. Leanne worries about Toyah
Spider feels uncomfortable as she accepts Toyah’s invitation to join the protest as protester Griff introduces himself to her. After the demonstration, Spider tries to convince Toyah to stay away from Griff since he’s a loose cannon and she might jeopardize her bail. Even while it appears that Spider is sincerely trying to protect Toyah, we are aware that he is undoubtedly concealing something.
Leanne is upset as she cautions Spider not to mislead her sister. Are her instincts right when she says that Toyah is headed for disaster? Will we ever learn Spider’s true intentions? This is soap opera country, after all, so that appears to be a given!
7. Are Faye and Craig over?
Craig intensifies tension by attempting to relieve Faye of the burden of dealing with her early menopause diagnosis.
Faye is upset with him for humiliating her in front of her supervisor when he urges Carla Barlow (Alison King) not to put her under any stress at work.
Craig apologizes, but Faye is offended when he gives her a special nightgown to keep her cool at night.
She accepts Craig’s offer to move in with his mother and tells him to do as he pleases, so Craig begins packing.
As the week progresses, Faye is upset to watch Craig having fun with his coworker, Jess; she is offended that he appears to be content and carefree.
After a productive day at the factory, Faye approaches Michael at the Rovers. What will he do? Does Craig and Faye’s relationship actually end there?
