In upcoming moments, Todd Boyce’s character Stephen Reid (on Coronation Street) will make another dubious suggestion: Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls) should sign the paperwork for her trust fund.
On the ITV soap, Audrey has been entrusting Stephen with her money. Is she about to find out, though, that he is merely using her for her money?
Fans of the ITV soap opera will recall that Audrey made the decision to invest all of her funds in a trust fund run by Stephen.
David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd), who thought the notion was a grave error, did not like it.
Stephen is irritated in yet-to-air Coronation Street scenes when his card is denied in a cafe.
He later uses a card bearing Mrs. Gabrielle Reid’s name to pay the deposit for Audrey’s afternoon tea.
In scenes that will show the following week, Audrey makes a startling statement, setting off a startled silence that is only broken by the appearance of a waiter carrying a cake.
Later, Audrey declares her intentions to completely renovate the salon at all costs.
When Stephen discusses Audrey’s plans to reopen the salon with Ken Barlow (William Roache), he realizes he is not being completely honest.
When Stephen interrogates his mother, she lies and claims to have experienced a brief health crisis.
Audrey rejects Stephen’s suggestion that she sign the trust fund paperwork right away, saying there is no rush.
Will Audrey ever understand that her son could simply want her money?
She might confront him and inquire about his genuine motives.
Stephen, though, might not be able to control the circumstance and might strike out at Audrey in a violent rage.
Could Stephen be killed by Audrey in self-defense?
In the next weeks, Audrey will play a significant role on the drama in a tragic suicide attempt storyline.
“Her family [who are] busy with their own life, see her down and upset moments as her not being able to cope with the real world, and she believes they have begun treating her a bit like a child, and she started to feel depressed,” said Sue, who plays Audrey.
She is generally in excellent health and with herself, but her despair seemed to take over completely.
The 78-year-old actress emphasized the significance of being able to communicate with others about their emotions.
The elder generation may lose their sense of purpose and start to feel fairly useless if the younger generation believes that anyone over the age of 70 is incapable of making decisions, she continued.
Sue expressed her hope that the plot would encourage older people to open up and begin sharing their feelings, as well as make younger people aware of how much the elder generation still had to contribute.
