In tonight’s Coronation Street, Sinead tells Daniel her mate Steff only has days to live, after Daniel furiously blames the dying woman for steering Sinead away from having chemotherapy.
Ken offers to give them a lift to the hospital, meanwhile Beth tries to help Sinead by researching into a specialist cancer clinic in Germany, but realises it would cost thousands of pounds.
At the hospital, Daniel tells Ken that Sinead has been skipping appointments, after which she is told the cancer has spread and she needs to start chemotherapy as soon as possible.
Daniel accompanies her and she tells him she is sorry, revealing that Ken has secretly been paying for her complementary treatment.
Sinead tells Beth the news, and, as Carla takes money from the safe, Beth remembers the combination, perhaps for a future plan.
