Stu's past is catching up with him (ITV)

What does Lucy reveal, and what further information will Yasmeen learn? There have previously been hints about Stu’s history, when he was arrested for trying to break into the suppliers’ for Speed Daal a few months ago. Although the police let him go, an officer told Stu that he was very lucky given his record.

So whatever he has been hiding, it’s clearly linked to him breaking the law. But what exactly did Stu do? Poor Yasmeen has been to hell and back in the past few years thanks to abusive late husband Geoff (Ian Bartholomew), so this mystery revelation is sure to leave her shaken about the man she thought she could trust.

Is Stu’s situation clear cut, turning him from gentle soul to sinister villain? Or could there be more to it? We can’t give you many hints, but it’s a complex storyline that gives actor Fellows a chance to explore the character that has, so far, won the hearts of viewers.

Will fans still be on his side after Stu’s unmasking? You’ll just have to tune in to Coronation Street tonight at 8pm to find out.
