Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine) and his mother Elaine Jones (Paula Wilcox) argue on tonight’s episode of Coronation Street about Elaine’s desire to wed the murderer Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce).
Although viewers are aware that Stephen poses a much bigger threat than just breaking his mother’s heart given his three murders, Tim still believes that Stephen will break his mother’s heart.
Elaine decides to travel to Las Vegas that afternoon for the wedding following the fight.
Sally Metcalfe, Tim’s wife (Sally Dyvenor), hurries to tell him as she is in shock at the information.
Tim then pretends to accept Elaine and Stephen’s marriage proposals by offering to drop them off at the airport.
He tricks his mother into getting in his cab, leaves Stephen behind, and drives off with Elaine as a hostage.
Will Tim be able to prevent Elaine and Stephen from getting married?
On another part of the street, Trish, a woman Dee-Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) met online and whose husband passed away from motor neurone disease (MND), is introduced to Paul Foreman (Peter Ash), Dee-Dee’s flatmate.
Trish explains to Paul the phases of MND and what to anticipate after his diagnosis.
Will Paul heed Dee-Dee’s advice to inform partner Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) about his condition?
In other scenes that will show tonight, Sarah Barlow (Tina O’Brien) expresses concern that her husband Adam (Sam Robertson) and Damon Hay (Ciarán Griffiths) may be becoming closer as a result of Sarah and Damon’s affair.
Will Sarah be able to hide her anxiety when Adam makes a reservation at the restaurant for his birthday and Damon offers to throw in a bottle of Champagne?
On the cobblestones in another location, Amy Barlow (Elle Mulvaney) boards a bus to see a buddy from university.
She experiences a panic attack and requests that the bus stop when a guy seats down next to her.
Rapist Aaron Sandford (James Craven) learns that his grandmother has passed away from his father Eric (Craig Cheetham), who then insists on taking him and Abi Webster (Sally Carman) out to supper.
In The Rovers, Peter Gunn’s character Brian Packham admits that he likes to build model boats and offers to assist Tony Maudsley’s character George Shuttleworth with his.
When Eileen Grimshaw (Sue Cleaver) learns that George and Brian have unintentionally bonded her favourite cup to the table at No. 11, she becomes irritated.
