Coronation Street Spoilers: The Barlows go into self-destruct as lies are revealed!

by Lynn Connolly

In upcoming episodes of Corrie, the Barlow family is set to hit the self-destruct button when both Tracy and Peter Barlows lies and deceits are exposed.

First, Tracy (Kate Ford) will face the wrath of Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) when his ex, Becky (Katherine Kelly) proves to him that Tracy lied about the circumstances of her recent miscarriage.

In truly dramatic form, Becky will rush to stop Steve from marrying Tracy on their wedding day – handing him Tracy’s medical records as he stands at the altar – however, rumour has it, she’ll be too late, but after the truth comes out, Steve tells Tracy it’s over between them and he plans to get a divorce as soon as he can.

However, when it’s also revealed that Tracy’s mum Deirdre (Anne Kirkbride) knew the truth all along, her long-suffering and furious husband Ken (Bill Roache) will throw her out of the house!

Soon afterwards, the Barlows will be left reeling yet again when Peter’s (Chris Gascoyne) affair with Carla Connor (Alison King) becomes public knowledge after the Private Investigator that Frank Foster (Andrew Lancel) hired produces damning evidence of the couple’s tryst.

The PI produces the evidence of Peter’s infidelity during Frank’s rape trial, and of course, Peter’s wife Leanne (Jane Danson) hears the truth first hand, as she’ll be in the public gallery.

However, getting back to Tracy’s wedding day from hell, Kate Ford told the Sun, “When I watched it, I didn’t feel any sympathy for Tracy.

“She is quite cold and when she wants her own way, she will do whatever it takes.

“As soon as Tracy loses control she turns nasty, which is in her nature.

“I don’t think she gets up in the morning wanting to be nasty, she can’t cope with things not going her way. She thinks she deserves happiness.”

Kat Kelly also spoke to the paper about her dramatic final scenes.

She said, “I hope people will be cheering for Becky when they watch the episode. Tracy has been so mean — she set out to destroy Becky and that’s what she did.

“It’s great that Becky gets to go out with a bang — she drops the bomb then leaves the carnage behind.

“I actually cried twice during the episode — once when her and Steve have that final showdown in the street.

“And then I got really teary watching her saying goodbye to Roy and Hayley. Hayley’s tears are totally real, Julie (Hesmondhalgh) who plays her was a right mess on the day.

“We’ve become so close and she kept crying all the time even though we were seeing each other a week later. She was crying between takes.”

We’ll see Becky producing her dramatic evidence in next Monday night’s double bill.
