Viewers of CORONATION STREET may soon witness the breakup of a beloved couple after a scheming family member tears them apart in tense scenes on the ITV soap.
Following his triple heart bypass, Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dynevor) has been by her husband Tim Metcalfe’s (Joe Duttine) side. Elaine Jones (Paula Wilcox), Sally’s mother-in-law, has been a thorn in Sally’s side while she’s been staying with the couple on Tim’s road to recovery. Will Elaine’s intrusion cause the couple to divorce as tensions rise in upcoming scenes on Coronation Street?
Sally suggests to Tim that they play a naughty game of landlords and tenants at their house in scenes yet to air on the ITV soap.
Elaine, on the other hand, points out that her son needs to relax after his recent surgery, putting a damper on her plan.
Sally is enraged by Elaine’s interference and tries to bite her lower lip.
Sally and her mother-in-law have been feuding recently, and it appears that she may be about to clash with Tim over her overbearing ways.
Elaine later reveals that she has enrolled in a heart health course, which makes Sally roll her eyes in disappointment.
As part of her course, the hands-on mother takes Tim’s pulse and incorrectly interprets the results.
Elaine checks his pulse again later in the episode, only to find it to be perfectly normal.
The correct result reveals Tim, while a perplexed Elaine consults her coursework.
Sally is torn between tending to Tim and Gina Seddon (Connie Hyde) after receiving the devastating news that her sister Gina Seddon (Connie Hyde) has died.
Elaine urges Sally to go take care of her sister while she stays with her son when Sally tells Tim.
Is Elaine looking at this as an opportunity to get even more under Sally’s skin?
Elaine and Tim are looking forward to spending an afternoon together playing board games, but Sally is clearly left out as they bond.
Sally has been finding it especially difficult to spend time with her husband because her mother-in-law is constantly watching her.
Will Sally admit how much she dislikes having Elaine around when she and Tim have some alone time?
Will Elaine continue to irritate Sally to the point of causing a major rift between the two?
Could this be part of Elaine’s plan to break up the happy couple?
Tim has been soaking up all of his mother’s attention, which he only reconnected with less than two years ago.
Fans of Coronation Street have taken to Twitter to express their opinions on the drama at the Metcalfe household between the trio.
Queen Lauren quipped: “Can we have a spin-off with Tim, Sally and Tim’s mum?”
Stuart said: “[Maybe] Tim ends up back in hospital after spending [time] with Sally and his mum?”
