Coronation Street will experience intense drama and emotion the following week when the programme switches timeslots for five episodes to coincide with the semifinals of Britain’s Got Talent.
As Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) battles his symptoms on the day of sister Gemma Winter’s (Dolly-Rose Campbell) wedding to Chesney Brown (Sam Aston), three significant storylines come to a head.
He is determined to accompany the bride down the aisle, but after giving a moving speech, it seems Gemma is going to experience grief as the gravity of the situation begins to sink in.
Away from the wedding festivities, Ryan Connor (Ryan Prescott) and Andrew Still’s acid attacker Justin (Daisy Midgeley, Charlotte Jordan) are in court to defend themselves.
Ryan boldly takes the stage to speak about the awful incidents that have permanently damaged both his physical and mental health.
He and Daisy are shocked, however, when Justin’s defence attorney claims that they are in love and that they planned the acid assault together.
The victims of Justin’s crime are then made to worry that they won’t get justice as he stands in front of the jury to spread his heinous falsehoods.
In the meanwhile, Evelyn Plummer (Maureen Lipman) and Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher) are concerned about Roy Cropper (David Neilson)’s mental health due to his impending surgery.
Before going to the hospital, the café king sends letters to the people he cares about in the event that he passes away.
Additionally, Evelyn is taken aback by his admission in her message.
The episodes will premiere on ITV at 7:30pm next Monday, so here’s what to anticipate.
