It’s been revealed today that in an upcoming storyline on Coronation Street, Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) will be brutally attacked as she’s delivering an order for knicker factory, Underworld.
The plotline begins when Tracy Luv is forced to become a delivery driver for the factory when Kirk Sutherland (Andy Whyment) calls in sick…
And while out on a run, armed raiders will stop Tracy in her van before robbing it and beating her “to a pulp!”
Tracy hears the news that she’s to stand in for Kirk from boss Carla Connor (Alison King) and she’ll be decidedly unhappy about it, telling Carla, “Me, a van driver? Yeah, I have a problem with that.
“I’m not employed as a driver and I’m not doing it.”
However, Carla apparently threatens to sack her if she doesn’t do it, so she reluctantly agrees. But following the roadside ambush, Tracy makes it back to the factory where her boyfriend Rob Donovan (Marc Baylis) is horrified to see her bloodied face.
The Daily Star report that he tells her, “Maybe I should take you down to casualty to get that checked out?
“Are you sure you don’t want to see a doctor?”
Tracy replies, “No, I’ll be fine. I just need a large brandy.”
The paper adds, “Her injuries spark a massive row between Rob and Carla, who believes her brother may be behind the van attack as payback for a previous fight.”
Furious Rob says, “A little gratitude would be nice. Tracy did her best to fight off those scumbags and all she got was a smack in the face.
“My girlfriend got injured. The last thing she deserves from you is snide comments.”
We’ll see that drama next month, but for now, here’s a sneak peek look at tonight’s episode…
