After admitting to handling stolen goods in Coronation Street, Bernie Winter (Jane Hazlegrove) faces a custodial sentence.
Even worse, she might not be able to spend her last moments with her dying son Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) due to her prison sentence.
Bernie recently disclosed that she might spend as much as six months in jail after the judge stated that her past required a custodial sentence.
Paul may not survive while she is imprisoned because he was recently diagnosed with MND and has been told he only has six to twelve months to live.
Bernie is determined to spend as much time as possible with her son as a result, and the family soon takes action to make that possible.
A new teaser video shows Bernie receiving Christmas presents early in the shape of some well-known carol singers.
She is startled to discover Paul, Gemma (Dolly-Rose Campbell), Joseph (William Flanagan), and two of the quads all decked out in holiday finery as she settles into the sofa after hearing a knock at the door.
Paul went on to say that they were going to celebrate Christmas early because Bernie wouldn’t be around.
Gemma offered an official invitation and a turkey dinner complete with all the fixings, along with a Christmas tree, as Joseph gave her the paper.
Bernie accepted the offer with gratitude, but would their Christmas be a success?
Will Bernie be able to enjoy her alternate Christmas with the shadow of prison over her head?
