A new trailer for Coronation Street reveals some of the cobbles’ most dramatic storylines to date – including a cheating scandal, a dodgy deal and a boat fire which could claim the life of one of the characters.
First off, viewers are shown how Audrey Roberts is dealing with her recent setback, after her money is stolen by her own grandson, Nick Tilsley.
She tells David Platt she is going to sell her shares of the salon to Claudia and, in response, David blackmails Nick to help him with a new business venture.
When David hears the news, he tells Claudia: "Well, you can stick your job you snotty-nosed witch," before dousing her in water.

He then talks to Nick, saying: "If we can’t get the salon, we use the money to get something else."
A shocked Nick replies: "So Gran loses everthing? That isn’t the deal we discussed."
David answers: "This is my deal, take it or leave it," as he is seen showing Audrey his and Nick’s new barber shop.
Viewers then see poor Amy tell Liz McDonald that she is pregnant, as she tells Liz: "I’m pregnant. I need your help as I want to have a termination."
Later, Tracy has cleary found out about the pregnancy and tells Amy: "This story about a party is a pack of lies, isn’t it? You know damn well who the father is."

She is then seen out and trying to "get bladdered," before she is cosying up with Adam Barlow, who tells her she is not married and can therefore have as much fun as she likes.
But will she cheat?

"He’s so tiny, he’s getting stronger every minute."
And it may be back on for Rana Nazir and Kate Connor, as Kate declares: "You can’t take your eyes off me!"
Rana replies: "I can’t take my eyes off you any day," before Mary jokingly introduces her to Carla Connor, saying she has a factory full of lace which may come in handy for a wedding dress.
