It has been claimed that a future storyline will see Fiz discover that her five-year-old daughter, Hope - whose father, murderer John Stape, died in hospital in 2011 - has a “highly aggressive” form of cancer.
The Mirror have reported that, later this year, Fiz will be “devastated” to learn Hope has neuroblastoma, and is said to be one of the most emotional storylines in the soap’s 55-year history.
An insider told the newspaper: “These will be some of the most heart-wrenching scenes ever seen on the show.
“Producers have gone to great lengths to understand as much about this cancer as possible. They want to portray accurately and sensitively what must be a very distressing time for parents and sufferers alike.”
Fiz recently returned to the cobbles, after actress Jennie McAlpine gave birth to her first child, a baby boy, named Albert.
Her character’s relationship with Tyrone Dobbs has been blighted with problems, ever since their reunion in 2013, when he finally left his abusive ex-girlfriend, Kirsty, who he has a baby girl with.
After the couple were hit badly by the sad death of Hayley Cropper in January 2014, Tyrone suffered a serious injury months later, breaking two ribs in a construction accident.
