The health of several Coronation Street residents is at risk in next week’s episodes, as Cassie Plummer’s (Claire Sweeney) life is on the line, while Chesney Brown’s (Sam Aston) fears for Gemma Winter (Dolly-Rose Campbell) mount.
Cassie’s addiction continues to consume her, despite Tyrone Dobbs’ (Alan Halsall) efforts to get her grounded in her new life in Weatherfield.
She is given a new job and plenty of support, but drug-dealing Dean remains a thorn in her side, leading to theft from work and home, and then an overdose that sees her rushed to hospital after collapsing.
After this, she is set to bring even more despair to Tyrone’s door as she spins lies about her childhood, which only serves to drive a deeper wedge between Tyrone and Evelyn (Maureen Lipman).
Elsewhere, in the wake of a dramatic confession of undying love from Henry Newton (George Banks), Gemma is in a tailspin.
And, with caring for the quads and trying to support dying brother Paul Foreman (Peter Ash), she is taking on a lot.
It seems Chesney’s worries that her illness could take hold once more may be founded.
And in other Street developments, the teens are in chaos as Max Turner (Paddy Bever) is in the middle of a potential love triangle.
Having been rejected by him, Lauren (Cait Fitton) is consumed by rage and trashes the salon, which leads to a warning from David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) to his son.
Whose fingers will be burnt?
