But will Steve manage to persuade Leanne to tell the truth about Oliver’s condition, or will she end up leaving his case in serious doubt?
Soap boss Iain McLeod has already teased trouble ahead for the family as the storyline continues to develop into the winter.
“It’s one of those soap stories that has sort of tentacles reaching out into all corners of the street, which is partly because of the nature of Steve and Tracy’s blended family.
“So, it’s a story that will have colossal ripples rolling out across the Street, and there are loads of interesting extra layers to it.”
Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
