In upcoming episodes of Coronation Street, we’ll see that Anna Windass (Debbie Rush) becomes alarmed when she finds out that her adopted daughter Faye (Ellie Leach) has been talking to an older man on the internet…
She of course – as most parents would – immediately assumes that the man is a predatory paedophile who could be “grooming” young Faye, however, while that turns out not to be the case, Anna’s still left distraught when she finds out that the mystery man Faye’s been speaking to is her biological dad, Tim Metcalfe!
And things go from bad to worse for Anna when she learns that Faye has bunked off school to meet up with Tim, who’s played by Joe Duttine who formerly appeared in Corrie as policeman DS Carr.
However, when Anna talks to her boyfriend Owen Armstrong (Ian Puleston-Davies) about her worries over Faye meeting up with Tim – which are primarily that she may want to go and live with her dad – Owen uses his fists to resolve the situation…
And that does not go down well with Anna who angrily informs him that his actions could mean that social services will take Faye away from her and hand her over to her dad!
After Owen attacks Tim, threatening him to stay away from Faye, the Daily Star reports that Anna will tell him, “We could lose her, your behaviour has jeopardised the adoption. This is a really difficult situation.
“One more outburst like today and me and you are finished.
“If it’s a choice between you and Faye, she wins hands down.”
However, Anna’s troubles with Faye are far from over, because as we’ll see as the storyline develops, Faye becomes resentful that Anna won’t allow her to see her father.
Here’s a reminder of how Faye first came into Anna’s life…
