Fans of Coronation Street will of course know that Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan) has custody of baby Jake, given that although he’s biologically not hers, as she carried him and gave birth to him, legally speaking she’s his mother…

But Tina’s decision to keep baby Jake – who she’s renamed Joe – has of course broken Izzy Armstrong’s heart, and the Windass and Armstrong family have vowed to fight Tina through every court in the land to get the baby back.

However, in next week’s episodes, both Izzy (Cherylee Houston) and Tina are set to face a Solomon’s choice as both women realise that the one who’ll be hurt the most, whatever happens, is little Jake.

The drama begins on Monday, June 24 when both Izzy and Tina get letters notifying them of their first court appearance. When he reads it, Tommy (Chris Fountain) once again urges Tina to rethink her decision about keeping the baby, pointing out to her that in the future, little Joe may resent her from keeping him from his natural parents.

Meanwhile, when Izzy reads the letter, she realises that the court cases could drag on for years, and even if she and Gary (Mikey North) won and little Jake was returned to them, by that time, Tina would be the only mother he’s ever known, and Izzy knows she couldn’t bring herself to drag him away from her if and when the time came.

By the time we see the double-bill of episodes that air on Friday, June 28, after an emotional showdown, Gary, Izzy and Tina realise they have to put the baby first, and all must now adjust to their new lives…

But who will the baby be calling Mummy? Tina or Izzy? Find out next week!

For now, here’s a look at this week’s drama…
