Easy prey


Soap World - - PRIMETIME -

Adev­as­tated Michelle is en­meshed in emo­tional tur­moil now that she’s been forcibly sep­a­rated from her lover Robert who’s been jailed for as­sault. Hav­ing de­cided to fake a sep­a­ra­tion from Robert to flush out the stalker who has been ter­ror­is­ing them for months, Michelle has clung tightly to Robert dur­ing her vis­its to him, know­ing that she’s go­ing to be alone when she gets home.

In her ef­forts to un­mask her tor­men­tor, Michelle (Kym Marsh) has been lean­ing on her old friend and ex-boyfriend Will (Leon Ock­enden) for sup­port, ini­tially obliv­i­ous to the fact that he is her stalker. That all changed when Michelle found ev­i­dence of Will’s guilt dur­ing a visit to his house. Shocked at the shrine he had cre­ated to her, Michelle re­alised she was in dan­ger and re­ported him to the cops who couldn’t do any­thing to help without con­crete ev­i­dence.

Sub­se­quently de­ter­mined to fight off Will what­ever the cost, Michelle does her best to hide her ter­ror around him but soon finds her­self in a deadly sit­u­a­tion as his tem­per boils over. Michelle’s hell fi­nally cul­mi­nates in a dra­matic scene at Will’s house in­volv­ing a swim­ming pool, which will for­ever al­ter her life.

In the af­ter­math of her or­deal, Michelle scram­bles to put her life back to­gether while Robert (Tris­tan Gem­mill) prays that he can get out of prison soon, both of them yearn­ing for the day when they can be hap­pily re­united, hav­ing buried the demons from their past once and for all.

ACT­ING THE PART Michelle (Kym Marsh) has dis­cov­ered that Will (Leon Ock­enden) is her stalker but she tries to pre­tend that she hasn’t caught on. CORONA­TION STREET WEEK­NIGHTS AT 7.20PM ON UKTV
