There’s a good deal of drama ahead for the Armstrong and Windass family on Coronation Street as first, dad-to-be Gary Windass (Mikey North) falls for barmaid Tina McIntyre – who is of course carrying Gary and his girlfriend Izzy’s baby – and next, young Faye Windass will accuse her adoptive mum Anna of abusing her!
Starting with the Gary and Tina (Michelle Keegan) storyline, The Sun reports that as Tina’s pregnancy goes on, and Gary and Izzy (Cherylee Houston) spend more time with their surrogate, Gary’s feelings for Tina will grow, leaving Izzy “devastated.”
The paper’s photographers spotted Michelle, Mikey and Cherylee filming in Manchester yesterday, about which Michelle revealed only that she’s enjoying donning her prosthetic baby bump because it’s keeping her warm!
She said, “I love the bump, especially in this weather … I’m gonna be sad when it goes!”
And recently, on the subject of Gary developing feelings for Tina, Michelle said, “Obviously she’s carrying Gary’s baby for him and Izzy.
“I think he’s beginning to get confused.
“I think he starts feeling things for Tina that shouldn’t really be there. Izzy gets upset.”
The paper adds, “The actress also revealed she doesn’t have a clue how the storyline will play out – or even if she Tina will agree to give the child up.”
Of that, Michelle said, “Initially that’s what I thought — that Tina would want to keep the baby.
“I don’t know, I’ve heard lots of things on what’s going to happen and how it’s going to end.
“I actually don’t know what’s true yet!”
What would you like to see happen in that storyline?
But on now to the drama when young Faye Windass (Ellie Leach) accuses her mum Anna (Debbie Rush) of abusing her…
She does so in order to get social services to remove her from Anna’s care – Anna of course adopted Faye – so that she can go and live with her biological father Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine).
We’ll hear Anna telling boyfriend Owen Armstrong, “She’s told social services I’ve hit her and tomorrow she’s being interviewed by the police. What do I do?”
But Owen (Ian Puleston-Davies) tries to reassure her, remarking, “You’ve done nothing wrong.
“She’s a kid making up stories.”
These storylines will air later this year, but for now, here’s a look at tonight’s visit to the Street…
