Coronation Street spoilers: Tragic diagnosis, Tracy fights for justice and a dangerous new love for Sarah
Next week on Coronation Street, there will be fierce clashes as Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) goes to war to seek justice for her daughter Amy and Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) fights for his life (Elle Mulvaney).
Paul has been concerned about his symptoms and his hand’s immobility for weeks following his injury.
He then receives the potentially life-altering news that he may have motor neurone disease as he schedules a consultation with a neurologist.
Tracy (James Craven) is also on the attack because she reasonably wants Aaron to answer for what he did to Amy.
The teen is appalled when her hasty efforts only serve to reveal what occurred to Amy, and she then drops the grievance.
Aaron still doesn’t get the gravity of his terrible behavior, and he seems almost happy that he “got away with it.”
Elaine (Paula Wilcox) is putting herself in danger by being forceful with serial killer Stephen Reid in another area of the cobblestones (Todd Boyce).
And things are about to get even more uncomfortable for Craig Tinker and Faye Windass (Ellie Leach) (Colson Smith).
Faye and Jackson are becoming closer because of Miley, so Craig may have cause for concern.
