Daniel rumbles Phelan! Corrie
To phelan’s big secret for comfort... reporter Daniel gets Too close but There are more bombshells so phelan is forced To hit back! for killer phelan This fortnight…
STORY SO FAR
Newspaper reporter Daniel Osbourne’s investigative instincts kicked in when he began to smell a story around Pat Phelan, after hearing about his involvement in last year’s property scam and the death of Michael Rodwell.
He trailed Phelan to the derelict house where he’s secretly holding Andy Carver prisoner, and the scouse scoundrel was scared his nosy neighbour may expose him.
Keeping tabs on Daniel, Phelan spied on him as he visited a little old lady in a nursing home and he was shocked at what he learnt…
It seems that Daniel could need dealing with – and we all know just how Phelan sorts such problems!
Phelan is distracted from his Daniel dilemma when daughter Nicola Rubinstein confesses she’s pregnant with Gary Windass’ baby. Phelan is stunned he’s going to be a grandad, but his focus is soon back on Daniel when he follows him to the nursing home again. Just who is the OAP the newshound is talking to?
‘Daniel visits a woman called Mrs Mcardle and he gives her a birthday cake,’ whispers our Corrie insider. ‘But what does she mean to both Daniel and Phelan?’
Daniel’s scoop impresses his editor, Cindy, and the pair have been mixing business with a bit of pleasure. Cindy’s husband, Ross, is tipped off about this and he storms into the Bistro and thumps Daniel!
Now, wouldn’t Phelan love it if Daniel were to lose his job and, therefore, his reason for asking increasingly awkward questions?
It’s the identity of Mrs Mcardle that holds the key to Phelan’s fate.
But why? Is she someone Nicola knows? A relative of Andy’s? Or is she linked to someone else in a way that could bring Phelan’s world of secrets crashing down on him?
Meanwhile, Phelan will try to shut Daniel down by any means necessary (read more on this on pages 24 & 25). But he should not underestimate Ken Barlow’s boy…
Daniel is, after all, the man who tried to kill his own father! So will Phelan end up left for dead at the bottom of a flight of stairs?!
It could happen...
Has dogged Daniel found a damaging link between Mrs Mcardle and Phelan?
First, Phelan found out Nicola is his daughter. Now she tells him she’s pregnant!
