Coronation Street spoilers with wedding hostage drama as Paul returns to criminal life

There are some rash moves next week on Coronation Street as, after locking horns with her son Tim Metcalfe, Elaine Jones agrees to fly out to Vegas that afternoon to marry killer Stephen. Sally is shocked and breaks the news to Tim, so Tim offers to run Elaine and Stephen to the airport, making out that he accepts their marriage plans.

Tim then lures Elaine into his taxi and, leaving Stephen on the doorstep, speeds away with his mum a hostage in the car. As Sally and Stephen watch in disbelief, Tim sets out to put a stop to his mum’s wedding.

Also in the ITV soap, Dee-Dee Bailey introduces her friend Paul Foreman to Trish, a woman she met online who lost her husband to Motor Neurone Disease. As Trish describes the stages of MND and what to expect, Dee-Dee urges Paul to tell Billy and his family about his condition.

A suspicious Dee-Dee secretly follows Paul, who started a new life on Coronation Street after a criminal background, to Freshco’s car park and finds him about to steal a car. She threatens to call the police but Paul is adamant that he needs the money. Putting the car into gear, he roars off.

Later, Paul corners drug dealer Damon Hay in the bistro office and demands £25,000, or he’ll grass him up. But Damon stands his ground and double-crosses Paul by calling his criminal contacts, urging them to shut down Paul’s attempt at blackmail.

As Paul heads off with Bernie and Gemma to go wedding dress shopping, Damon calls his contact Niall and tells him the plan is on. In the wedding shop, when Gemma finds the perfect dress, Paul takes pictures in the hope the factory girls can knock up a cheap copy but the shop assistant catches them red handed.

Later, Paul meets up with Damon in the precinct and Damon admits that he hasn’t got it and that Niall and his brother are out for his blood. But then Damon has a change of heart and orders Paul to scarper before it’s too late.

Elsewhere, Adam Barlow books a table at the bistro for his birthday as Damon offers to throw in a bottle of champagne, leaving wife Sarah feeling uneasy. Also on Coronation Street, Amy Barlow boards the bus into town to meet a uni friend, but when a guy sits next to her, she suffers a panic attack and orders the bus driver to pull over.
