It’s been revealed today that Coronation Street bosses have filmed two endings for the climax to the Kirsty Soames and Tyrone Dobbs storyline…
One ending will feature Tyrone (Alan Halsall) going to prison, having been found guilty of child abduction and of battering Kirsty, while the other shows wicked Kirsty (Natalie Gumede) getting her comeuppance and being imprisoned when her lies are exposed!
As fans will know, Tyrone is of course innocent of the charges of domestic violence, because it has in fact been Kirsty who’s been battering him…
However, as we saw in last night’s double-bill of episodes, Tyrone’s lover Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine) put him on the road to prison by tipping off the police as to their whereabouts.
The couple had been hiding out in Wales, having snatched baby Ruby from her psycho mum. Poor Ty will now be held on remand in prison until his case is heard in court.
But of the possible outcomes to the story, The Sun reports, “In Ending One, left, Kirsty is in handcuffs and is led away by police officers. Tyrone smiles and gets a big hug from by pal Hayley Cropper (Julie Hesmondhalgh).
“But in Ending Two, Tyrone is arrested, right, and appears at Weatherfield Crown Court where he has to try to prove his innocence.”
Which ending would you prefer to see? Personally, I would imagine it’s a foregone conclusion that Kirsty will be the one imprisoned. Soaps tend to always see the baddie getting their comeuppance in the end!
However, of the plotline, Jennie McAlpine told the Mirror that she’d love to see Fiz and Tyrone living happily ever after once the story concludes.
She said, “It’s not straightforward. Fiz has had a lot of heartbreak with her relationships, but that’s why she and Tyrone are drawn to each other – they’ve both been very unlucky in love.
“They’re striving for this happy, loving family, but it’s happening in a weird twisted way.”
And when asked, “Are you proud of the domestic abuse storyline?” Jennie replied, “Yes, I’m really pleased that Corrie chose to tackle this issue.
“They’ve done it with the right characters and a lot of sensitivity.
“Also, I was so chuffed that my colleague Alan Halsall won Serial Drama Performance at the National Television Awards.”
It hasn’t yet been announced when the dramatic conclusion to the plotline will air, but we wil of course keep you posted.
For now, here’s a sneak peek look at tomorrow night’s visit to Corrie…
