Coronation Street

Self de­struc­t­ing af­ter his at­tack on Ken, he knocks back nar­cotics and passes out

TV Times - - News -

It hasn’t taken long for ‘golden boy’ Daniel Os­bourne to lose his shine, has it? Not only is he rid­dled with guilt for at­tack­ing old Kenneth, he’s been dumped by Sinead and sent to Coven­try by the en­tire Barlow clan – well, all apart from Ken, who has fi­nally re­alised what a rub­bish dad he has been to the lad. This week, as the strug­gling stu­dent con­tin­ues on his down­ward spi­ral, he takes so­lace in drugs. Ken can see that his lad is a mess and, ear­lier, he of­fers to pay for him to see a ther­a­pist. But Daniel in­sists he doesn’t de­serve any help. What he re­ally wants is his lit­tle blonde knicker stitcher back in his life, so he’s left crushed when Sinead re­fuses to talk to him.

He gets his hands on drugs cour­tesy of a fella called Rich, an old friend of Robert’s, who turns up at the Bistro. As Rich of­fers Robert some gear, Robert de­clines, but Daniel clocks the ex­change.

Later, he drinks him­self stupid then asks Rich for some of his wares, mak­ing out they’re for the chef.

‘Daniel is de­pressed and not re­ally feel­ing any­thing, and he just wants to feel some­thing,’ says Rob Mal­lard, who plays him.

Robert smells a rat when Rich de­mands cash for Daniel’s drugs, so he heads round to the boy’s flat and bangs on the door. When Adam ar­rives, the pair find Daniel un­con­scious. Will he pull through?
