Potential tragedy strikes in next week’s Coronation Street, while a sordid affair looks set to be exposed in dramatic fashion.
Stu Carpenter (Bill Fellows) continues to struggle with Eliza’s relationship with her dad, and seems vindicated when Dom lets her down again.
When he loses his rag with the child, however, it leads to catastrophe when she is hit by a car.

Stu, seeing right through him, then goes on to make a furious mistake – and police are then involved.
Also facing a crisis are Aadi Alahan (Adam Hussain) and Courtney Vance (Stephanie Davis) as their fingers are about to be burnt.
Amy Barlow (Elle Mulvaney) already knows their secret, and Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) walks in them next.
And, at a special lunch, it seems that Courtney’s husband Darren is in for the shock of his life.
Meanwhile, still at loggerheads with Tyrone (Alan Halsall), Evelyn Plummer (Maureen Lipman) moves in with Roy Cropper (David Neilson).
Which is sure to bring with it its own problems.
