Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine) confesses to trying to kill Alina Pop in the fire Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine) will be more desperate than ever to defend Hope on Coronation Street, confessing to lighting the fire on her daughter’s behalf.
As Hope’s resentment over Alina’s (Ruxandra Porojnicu) relationship with Tyrone (Alan Halsall) intensified, she stormed into the flat and seized the dinosaur toy she had given to Alina for the new baby.
Hope stood by and watched as Alina’s flat caught fire while she was sleeping.
Fiz spends the night in a jail as a stand-in for Hope, keeping to her tale that she ignited the fire.
Meanwhile, back at home, Evelyn (Maureen Lipman) implores Ty to persuade Hope to seek professional assistance.
Fiz later wants to know why she hasn’t been charged despite her confession, but an officer informs her that new information has surfaced.
But what kind of information will there be?
Do the cops know Hope was the one who sparked the fire?
If that’s the case, what does that mean for Hope if she’s questioned by the cops?
