Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) just needs to look in the general direction of a woman and she’s pregnant so it should come as little surprise to him that he has children out there that he never even knew about. And one of them just happens to live on Coronation Street!
After Emma Brooker (Alexandra Mardell) discovered that her dad wasn’t her biological father moments before he died, Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls) caught sight of her phone when her mum was ringing and saw the face of her old friend and colleague Fiona Middleton (Angela Griffin).
As she had a thought that Emma’s age would match when Steve and Fiona were dating, she did the maths with Liz (Beverley Callard) and realised that it is a possibility that Steve is indeed the real dad of Emma.
As Emma grieves the loss of the man she was brought up by, Steve gets the shock of his life when Liz breaks the news to him. And it’s no secret to viewers that after a DNA test and confirmation from Fiona herself to Emma, that it will indeed transpire that Steve is the father.
Tonight he is left reeling as he realises that his family and responsibilities could be expanding again and at the end of the week, he sees a tearful Emma upset by the fact that she can’t afford a headstone for her late ‘dad’.
Steve kindly offers to pay for one for her, knowing full well who she might be. But when they both have the shocking bombshell confirmed, it’s going to be a bumpy ride – with Steve and Emma struggling to get their heads around it all.
It drives Emma to consider leaving Coronation Street for good – but can she be stopped? And can Steve make up for lost time?
Coronation Street continues on Wednesday 14th August at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
