Things are reportedly set to go from bad to worse for Steve McDonald in ‘Coronation Street’, when he receives some health news that could affect the two unborn babies he’s fathered.
Steve is set to find out that he may have inherited genetic disorder myotonic dystrophy from his dad, Jim.
The paper adds that Steve will tell his wife about the condition, who will then confide in Leanne - totally unaware that her pal’s baby is also Steve’s.
At present, it’s only Steve, Leanne and Nick Tilsley who know the truth about the fact that the Streetcars owner is the unborn child’s father, but this could well be the tipping point that sees the secret revealed to the whole of Weatherfield.
A number of big ‘Corrie’ storylines are currently getting underway, and in the coming months there will be something of a Barlow family reunion when a number of familiar faces return to Weatherfield.
