Sarah Platt (Tina O’Brien) is about to have the wool pulled from her eyes in Coronation Street as she realises her uncle Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce) isn’t as innocent as she believed.
Shortly after Stephen returned to Weatherfield, it was revealed that he was in the middle of planning to steal Audrey’s (Sue Nicholls) cash. One of the ways he intended to do this was by getting access to her equity release money.
With a little help from Gabrielle (Helene Maksoud), Stephen was successful with getting his hands on some of Audrey’s cash but not all of it, as she chose to use some to fund a holiday for her and Sam (Jude Riordan).
This move comes back to bite Stephen in upcoming episodes, as Audrey shows Gail (Helen Worth) a statement from an equity release company and then shows it to Sarah, wondering if it’s got anything to do with the visit she had from an estate agent which Stephen organised.
After Angelique breaks the news that she won’t be renewing the Nippersnapper deal, Stephen tells Carla (Alison King) that Sarah and Michael (Ryan Russell) are considering buying the company outright.
Later in the week, Sarah overhears Stephen on the phone to Jenny (Sally Ann Matthews) about the plan for the Rovers.
Wrongly assuming that he’s talking to Angelique about Nippersnapper, Sarah follows Stephen and finds him at the hotel.
Confronting her uncle, Sarah threatens to call the police, believing that he’s about to pull a fast one on the deal, but what will Stephen say?
Is he about to get away with three murders and go to prison for a dodgy business exchange?
Reflecting on whether Tim poses a danger to Stephen, Todd Boyce said:
‘He isn’t planning on harming him but if Tim got run over I don’t think Stephen would rush to save him. However, Tim is kind of putting himself in the most dangerous place with delving a bit too much into Stephen’s life because other people who have been in this place where Tim is are no longer with us. Tim is walking a fine line.’
