A shock arrival sends panic through Ed in Corrie

Is Ed's gambling secret about to be uncovered?

When Grandad Sarge arrives early, Ed is shocked and secretly panics when Ronnie suggests a big family meal out, insisting they’ll pick up the tab.

Having taken out a payday loan, Ed scans the racing pages and as the Baileys gather in the bistro, Ed surreptitiously watches the racing on his phone, while Sarge makes digs about his business brain.

Dee-Dee quietly explains to Joel that Sarge thinks they lost their house because of a bad business decision, not Ed’s gambling.

Having lost his bet Ed sweats and Ronnie pays for lunch, telling Ed he can give him half later.

Finding Tony, Ed admits he can’t pay him because he’s a gambling addict and has lost all his money. As Ronnie approaches, Ed begs Tony not to say anything. Will he reveal all? 

As Sarge makes himself very much at home to Ed’s annoyance, he admits that his business is struggling and he needs to borrow £2k. And Ed masks his rising panic when Ronnie assures him that he and Ed can lend him the money.

Later on in the week, Sarge returns to No.3 laden down with Christmas presents, explaining to Ed that they didn’t cost much but he couldn’t see his family go without.

Coronation Street continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1
