Corrie: Tyrone Dobbs and Fiz Stape embark on a dangerous liaison, as do Tracy Barlow and Rob Donovan!

by Lynn Connolly

Fans of Corrie will surely know that Tyrone Dobbs and Fiz Stape are going to take their lives in their hands and risk the wrath of Kirsty Soames by embarking on an affair this Christmas…

And today, it’s been reported that love is also in the air for Tracy Barlow and Rob Donovan in the New Year! More on that in a moment…

But first, further details about Fiz (Jennie McAlpine) and Tyrone’s (Alan Halsall) affair emerged over the weekend- you can click here to see our report on the storyline from last week – and in an episode that will air a week today, Fiz and Tyrone are nearly caught red-handed by Kirsty (Natalie Gumede) and it’s a close shave that will leave both Fiz and Tyrone scared witless!

It all begins when Kirsty comes over all altruistic for a change and organises a surprise party for Tyrone’s 30th. But as she goes to check that everything’s ready in the pub, and to bring Emily Bishop (Eileen Derbyshire) over to babysit Ruby, what she doesn’t know is that Fiz has called round to visit Ty…

Armed with a card, a cake and a gift for her lover, Fiz is horrified when Kirsty turns up to take Tyrone to his party, and she has to hide herself away, praying that Kirsty won’t see her.

But of course, she’s then stuck there, until Emily falls asleep that is, and she can finally escape.

A Corrie insider told the Daily Star, “It’s a really close call when Kirsty arrives home with Emily.

“Tyrone is shaking with fear as Fiz ducks down behind the bar. Luckily, they get away with it and Tyrone goes to the pub with Kirsty.

“He’s been through so much already and Fiz has been an incredible support.”

The source added, “When he gets to the pub everyone surprises him and he ¬pretends to be happy with Kirsty’s efforts.

“But the last thing he feels like doing is celebrating his birthday so publicly when he is so miserable.

“He is only keeping Kirsty sweet to ¬ensure he doesn’t lose Ruby.”

As mentioned, we’ll see all that drama on ITV1 a week today, but back now to the revelation that Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) and Rob Donovan (Marc Baylis) are set to embark on a romance in the New Year…

And it’s an alliance that’s set to make them “the Street’s latest couple from hell!”

A show source said, “Tracy and Rob are a match made in soap heaven. They will be fiery, passionate and out to cause trouble.

“Rob is still hooked on his co-worker Michelle and Tracy is still in love with Steve…

“So as well as being attracted to each other, Tracy and Rob see this as a way to rock Steve and Michelle’s boat.”

“It’s a truly toxic relationship. There is a genuine attraction there but each is out for what they can get and they are completely self-obsessed.

“This relationship will cause maximum mayhem.

“They’ve both got a chequered past but this could be the most destructive relationship yet for both of them.

“Everyone knows about Tracy’s past but Rob likes danger.”

Fans may recall that when Rob first arrived on the Street, he was fresh out of prison, and it never was explained what he’d been banged up for!

Guess we’ll soon find out! Here’s a reminder of what happened the last time Tracy got into a serious relationship with a Corrie bad lad…
