Emma Brooker’s anguish on Coronation Street as her baby is diagnosed with a deadly illness?
Following the events of Monday’s double-bill of CORONATION STREET, Emma Brooker could be set to make two major discoveries in the coming months, as she has not one but two people to consider.
Emma (Alexandra Mardell) awoke in great spirits on Monday’s first visit to Coronation Street, having slept together for the first time with her lover, Curtis Delamere (Sam Retford). By the end of the first episode, however, the young heartthrob had been seen conversing with a mystery young woman, prompting Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) to confront his daughter’s boyfriend. Unfortunately, he received some devastating news regarding the child, but now that they’ve had sex, may the ITV soap’s lovebirds face even more issues as they learn they’re set to become parents?
Steve was furious with Curtis after finding him with a woman in the restaurant while Emma was preoccupied with the naked calendar shoot she was organizing to raise funds for her late brother’s charity.
What he didn’t realize was that the kid had just said he could “drop dead” at any moment and that he wasn’t cheating on Emma.
With his daughter’s boyfriend in the dark, the Weatherfield stalwart encouraged his daughter’s boyfriend to break up with Emma before she got too invested.
The heartthrob ignored him and ended his relationship with his fiancée since he didn’t want her to be concerned about his illness.
After overhearing Curtis discussing his diagnosis, Danny Tomlinson (Dylan Brady) persuaded the father-of-three to listen to what he had to say.
Curtis informed Steve that he was suffering from a terminal disease and that the woman he had seen him with was from a support group.
“Is there nothing else they can do?” The father of three inquired, and the youngster replied, “Not yet.”
“It’s a cardiac problem. Beyond that, the physicians are baffled,” he added, his voice trembling, before adding that he could die at any moment.
“How do you manage it?” After seeing his own son Oliver Battersby (Emmanuel and Jeremiah Cheetham) struggle with a terminal illness, Emma’s father inquired.
“In some ways, I suppose I’m no different than everybody else. “None of us knows when we’ll die,” Curtis continued.
It’s a heart, of course. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
