We’ve seen in a previous Corrie storyline that Roy Cropper’s mum Sylvia (Stephanie Cole) is a tad prone to addiction, and in that former plotline, that propensity manifested itself as the pensioner became hooked on gambling…

However, in episodes that we’ll see next week, a livid Rita Tanner (Barbara Knox) brands Sylvia a “drug dealer” after she learns that her husband Dennis (Phillip Lowrie) has been buying Sylvia’s ‘special’ cakes which are laced with cannabis!

The drama began when Sylvia became hooked on her friend Stan’s homemade baked goods, which left her baked in more ways than one…

So in the episode that airs on April 1, we’ll see that Sylvia has decided to knock up a few brownies of her own, however, café assistant Anna Windass (Debbie Rush) will unwittingly sell some of the cakes to Rita.

And as Rita settles down to enjoy the elevenses treat with hubby Dennis and friends Norris (Malcolm Hebden) and Mary (Patti Clare), a frantic Sylvia faces a race against time to retrieve her brownies…

However, in the episode that airs on April 3, we’ll see Dennis begging Sylvia to sell him some more of her cakes, pleading that he needs them to help with his joint pain.

Empathizing with Dennis over his aches and pains, as we’ll see in the double-bill of episodes that air on April 5, she relents and she and Dennis waste no time in tucking in…

But when Rita and Roy (David Neilson) find Sylvia and Dennis giggling like schoolgirls, they’re bemused about their apparently silly states, until that is they discover that Sylvia’s been putting weed into the brownies!

Fuming, Rita tells Sylvia that she’s nothing but a drug dealer while threatening to call the police.

Will she carry out her threat? Find out next Friday, but for now, here’s a look at some of Sylvia’s best Corrie bits…
