Curtis Dekampere’s (Sam Retford) lies about being terminally sick are about to come crashing down in Coronation Street, and it’s up to Emma Brooker (Alexandra Mardell) to kick him to the curb or stick by her man.
It would be difficult enough to make this judgement if his only crime had been to pretend to be terminally ill. That can be described as a mental disease brought on by a terrible period in his life when his parents divorced.
Theft, on the other hand, would be more difficult to forgive, and it appears that Curtis is planning to do just that.
When Steve (Simon Gregson), who is slightly tipsy, hands Curtis his bank card and PIN (which is usually a mistake), he asks him to deposit £100,000 to Oliver’s charity account.
Curtis is seen accessing his laptop and holding Steve’s credit card.
Even Curtis couldn’t possibly steal from a charity, right?
Is Curtis about to take the money and bring Steve and Emma’s lives to a halt?
