Corrie fans baffled over Craig blackmail plot as they claim it ‘makes no sense’

Coronation Street 's Craig Tinker made a shocking move as he blackmailed Faye Windass (Ellie Leach) over her involvement in a hit and run.

The ex-copper, played by Colson Smith, was devastated when he discovered his fiancée had shared a kiss with her ex and father of her daughter, Jackson Hodge (Joseph William Evans).

Confronting Faye about her betrayal, Craig said: "How could you do this to me after all I did to protect you?

"You know very well, what I did. You could've gone to prison with all that means for an ex-copper, and I still took that chance.

"All to keep you safe. Because I love you that much. And you go and snog your ex at the first chance you get. How stupid am I?"

He went on to admit he was willing to blackmail his fiancée to stay with him as he continued: "I feel like going down to the station right now and telling them everything."

During Monday's episode (May 22) of the ITV soap, Faye told Gary Windass (Mikey North) that she couldn't leave Weatherfield to be with Jackson and Miley because Craig could send her to prison.

But fans seemed confused by the surprising move as they noted his career would be completely over if he told them about Faye.

"Craig wouldn't blab he'd be putting his new promotion on the line otherwise," wrote one viewer.

A second fan added: "Craig would be incriminating himself for removing evidence, so why would he dob you in? As soon as Faye goes, the better."

Another person echoed: "Craig 100% won't say anything. If he did he'd be incriminating himself."

A fourth shared: "This makes no sense, he would be in prison himself if he told," while someone else fumed: "Stupid storyline. If Craig told the police his career would be finished ffs."

Ellie, 22, quit the role of Faye after 12 years on the soap, with her final scenes airing later this week.
