Justin's trial gets underway in Corrie as Ryan and Daisy face a tough grilling

Is the idea of justice slipping further away from Ryan and Daisy?


Calling at the Rovers, Justin’s sister, Karen, tells Daisy how sorry she is for Justin’s attack and how she hopes he’ll be sent down.



Whilst Daisy is touched by Karen's support, Carla and Ryan are appalled to see Justin’s sister in the Rovers and a row ensues.


Throwing insults, Ryan reminds Daisy how she went out of her way to split him up from Alya.


As Ryan leaves for court, Karen admits that she passed on what she gleaned about Daisy’s history of manipulation, to Justin’s lawyer.



Letting himself back into Street Cars, Ryan is too distressed to face the court. But when he fails to turn up at court, Carla desperately tries to call him.


When Daisy calls at the flat, Ryan reveals that Karen was spying on them, leaving Daisy stunned. When she begs him to reconsider as without his evidence, Justin could walk free, will Ryan be moved?



With Daisy stressed at the thought of facing Justin in court without Ryan to back her up, Daniel begs Ryan to reconsider, pointing out that if Justin walks free, Daisy will be in constant fear. But Ryan refuses.



As the usher summons Daisy into court she crumbles and tells Daniel she can’t face it. Taking the witness box, Daniel tells the court how Justin relentlessly stalked Daisy in the run-up to his acid attack.


When Daisy is about to do a runner, Carla spots her and urges her to stand up and prove to Justin that he can't control her.


As the defence barrister gives Daniel a grilling, painting Daisy as highly strung and unreliable, Daisy enters the witness box. Will she have the strength to face Justin and relive the attack?


When Ryan does eventually enter the witness box, he describes to the court how Justin threw the acid intending it for Daisy, but he took the full force causing indescribable pain. Cross-examining Ryan, the defence barrister suggests it's he who's in love with Daisy and they plotted the acid attack themselves. Leaving both Ryan and Daisy horrified.



As Justin enters the witness box, how will he describe his version of events and how will the court react to his claims?
