There’s more trouble brewing in the week ahead for the residents of Manchester’s most famous street.
Coronation Street fans will be keen to see how pregnant teenager Amy Barlow reacts to the police’s questioning over Tyler this week – and what she will ultimately chose to do about her unborn child.
Meanwhile mystery still surrounds the boat fire and exactly what Carla has been up to – will she finally come a cropper?
Viewers will also need to make sure to make a note of the slight schedule changes this week for the soap – there will only be one episode on Wednesday as the Brit Awards will be shown live on ITV. On Friday night it will be an hour-long Corrie special from 7.30pm to 8.30pm, with Vera following directly after.
Here’s your episode-by-episode guide to the week ahead.
Monday 18th February, 7.30pm and 8.30pm
Tracy gets tough – and the police question Amy
The drama surrounding teen Amy Barlow’s pregnancy continues to grow this week. And in Monday’s episode we will see her angry mum Tracy try to take matters into her own hands.
She vows that she is not going to let Tyler and his mum ruin her and Steve’s adoption plans of Amy’s baby. But Robert refuses to sack him from the Bistro, so Tracy pins Tyler against a wall and offers him £5000 to have nothing more to do with Amy or the baby but is thwarted when Robert interrupts and orders him back to work. What will she do?
Later we will see Amy questioned by the police and despite her protestations that it was consensual sex and Tyler did nothing wrong, the officer explains to her that as she was underage it is still an offence and she has to give a statement. Amy is furious with Tracy and Steve and runs off at the police station. In Victoria Gardens Tyler apologises to her but says he wants nothing to do with the baby. Unsure of what to do, Amy confides in Bethany.
Carla has a bad day
The police also pay a visit to Carla – as they continue to investigate the fire on Peter’s boat.
They ask her about the fire and she says she was in town at the time and the CCTV has a technical glitch which sometimes deletes footage.
Later, Peter tells Carla that the police have declared the boat fire an accident but he remains unconvinced. Seb tells Peter he saw Carla acting shiftily and putting a bin bag in the boot of her car the morning after the fire.
Convinced Carla is hiding something, Roy quizzes her but she says it was a bag of Underworld seconds for a charity shop.
Wednesday 20th February, 7.30pm
Tyrone and Mary – what’s the score?
After Tyrone received a mystery Valentine’s Card and believed it to be from Mary he broached the subject with her when she offered to give him a massage. But it appears he may have got the wrong end of the stick. In Wednesday night’s episode he’s left trying to make amends.
Tyrone and Ruby call in to the flower shop and invite Mary round to their house for tea saying they have missed her. Mary agrees and they decide to put it all behind them.
