As fans of Corrie will know, surrogate mum Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan) went into labour weeks too early, and gave birth to Gary Windass and Izzy Armstrong’s baby boy, who, though alive, is fighting for his life…

And things take a dramatic turn next week when, after the baby – who Gary and Izzy are set to name Jake – can’t keep any milk down, he’s rushed for surgery on his bowel, and doctors tell his frantic parents that he has only a 50% chance of surviving the ordeal.

The drama begins on Monday, June 3rd when Tina tells Tommy (Chris Fountain) that although the doctors have said she can go home, she doesn’t want to leave little Jake in the hospital…

However, she does reluctantly go home, but she finds that she can’t stop thinking about the baby, so it’s not long before she asks Tommy to take her back to the hospital so that she can see the baby…

Then, on Wednesday, June 5, when Izzy (Cherylee Houston) calls Tina with the news that Jake needs urgent surgery, she races to the hospital to sign the consent forms, because in the eyes of the law, though Jake isn’t genetically Tina’s child, the fact that she gave birth to him means she’s his next of kin.

Tina signs and baby Jake’s rushed to theatre while she, Izzy, Gary (Mikey North) and Tommy wait anxiously for news.

In the double-bill of episodes that air on Friday, June 7, the operation has gone well, but only two people can visit the baby at any one time…

Tina’s heart breaks as she hangs back and allows Gary and Izzy to go in, but alone with Tommy, Tina finally confesses how much she loves Jake and adds that isn’t sure she can give him up, which shocks, but doesn’t surprise, Tommy.

Later, when Jake’s stable, Tina gets a visit from Owen (Ian Puleston-Davies) who’s there to give her the rest of the money he promised her for having the baby, however, Tina tells Tommy that she hates what she’s done, and feels as though she’s sold her own child…

Resolving to stand by her, Tommy tells Tina that if she decides to keep the baby, they’ll bring him up together as if he’s their own. In turmoil, Tina must decide if this is what she really wants, and if she can bring herself to break Gary and Izzy’s hearts.
