Coronation Street favourite Mary Taylor is left heartbroken again next week by ‘Ken Barow’.
Poor Mary suffers another devastating blow as she is ripped off of £500 by evil ‘Ken’.
However, in typical Corrie fashion, viewers will discover that not all is as it seems on the surface.
There is initial Hope for Mary as she follows a lead to a Blackpool B&B with Roy Cropper in the hopes of reuniting with her absent son Jude Appleton.
The compulsive liar, who pretended to be a marine biologist, is up to his old tricks again and tries to get as much money as possible out of his despairing mother.

When offered £500, nasty Jude says: "You better get as much as you can. I might have run up a few extras. I was too embarrassed to check the final amount."
Foolish Mary rushes off to the cashpoint and believes Jude will return back to Weatherfield with her and Roy.
Her son’s scheme soon becomes apparent when he meets up with a blonde woman and starts putting on an Irish accent.

It will later be revealed that Jude is pretending to be "Dr Ken Barlow" as part of his latest lie.
When the blonde asks who he was talking to, Jude pretends that she was a grateful patient.
He says: "Three months ago she couldn’t walk. I did a four hour double hip operation on her and now she’s skipping round Blackpool like a teenager."
