Faye Windass of Coronation Street would have to make a tough decision about her future relationship with Craig Tinker.

Ellie Leach will appear in court shortly to learn whether she will be sentenced to jail after admitting to assaulting Adam Barlow. Faye accidentally hit Adam, mistaking him for Ray Crosby and seeking vengeance for him attempting to rape her earlier that night.

Ellie said that Faye and Craig (Colson Smith) have a lot of love for one another because of their long-standing relationship, and that Faye doesn’t want to hold him back if she gets sent down.

Ellie said: “I think she does genuinely love Craig, their relationship has grown from friendship and I think that’s what’s great about it.

“They’ve been friends for years, this hasn’t just happened overnight. They’ve built a relationship based on friendship and I think that really shows in the way they trust each other.

“Craig’s always been there for her over the years and genuinely loves and trusts him. It’s hard though because she’s thinking if she does go to prison, what’s he going to do? She wouldn’t ever tell him he has to wait for her.”

Craig will be told in upcoming scenes that his relationship with Faye will jeopardize his future career as a cop, so he decides to resign because he cares deeply about her, but she isn’t pleased when she finds out.

Ellie clarified that Faye doesn’t want to show too much affection to Craig because she doesn’t want to hold him back, and that Faye believes it will be better to finish things with Craig so he doesn’t have to lose his career.

“If she does go to prison and he keeps in contact with her then he could possibly lose his job and she’s not prepared for that to happen. She tells him she thinks they should call it a day, she doesn’t want him to ruin his life for her.”

Speaking about Craig’s feelings about the situation, Ellie added: “He’s upset that she thinks that them being together is going to ruin his life, but in reality, there is that chance. Faye’s trying to look at the bigger picture but Craig’s just consumed by the moment.”
