Fans of Corrie will know that the Street’s residents often have troubles with their kids, and in next week’s episodes, we’ll see that those most fraught over their children right now are Anna Windass and Dev Alahan…

Starting with Anna (Debbie Rush) she of course made the decision to allow her adopted daughter Faye (Ellie Leach) to go and live with her dad Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine) however, she’s worried that the little girl isn’t being cared for properly.

And on Monday, when Tim takes Faye to the cinema on a school night, it seems Anna’s worries may be justified. However, things are set to get worse when in the double-bill of episodes that air on Friday 26th, Tim leaves Faye home alone so that he can go for a pint.

Will Anna find out? And if so, what will she do about it?

On now to Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) and he is of course struggling to cope with the demands of his grieving children and of having to keep his businesses afloat…

So in order to make sure the kids are taken care of, Dev’s been hunting for a nanny, however, the only real candidate was Mary Taylor (Pattie Clare) and though Dev was initially reluctant to take her on, as we’ll see next week, she’s a big hit with his kids Aadi and Asha.

However, by the time we get to Friday, her constant fussing and calling in unannounced is beginning to annoy Dev, and he tries to persuade her that he doesn’t need her to come round to cook meals and so on.
