FOLLOWING THE MASSIVE REVELATIONS THAT HAVE TORN APART HIS WORLD OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS, Steve MUST TRY TO MOVE ON, BUT FORGIVING HIS FATHER Jim MAY BE TOO MUCH...
Over the years, Steve McDonald has been badly burnt by his wayward father Jim, whose roll call of heinous crimes has always returned to haunt Steve and his family. He’s always vowed never to forgive Jim for the misery he’s caused but usually, but Steve caves at the 11th hour and welcomes his dad back... only to be betrayed all over again!
Recent events have proven that this vicious cycle can’t be broken. Immediately suspecting that a paroled Jim has shown up from prison with another muck-raking con in mind, Steve was proven right when Jim’s plan to have his young lover Hannah pose as Katie, the infant sister Steve thought he’d lost the day after she was born in 1992, unravelled. It was nothing more than a cruel scam to exploit the family’s heartbreak and extract compensation from the hospital for a supposed baby switch that never took place! To add to Steve’s unease, Hannah also blackmailed his mother Liz’s married lover Johnny for cash! All the while, Steve’s fiancée Tracy was planning their wedding, unaware that he didn’t really love her and had slept with her best mate Abi!
The entire litany of lies and deception was unveiled in dramatic fashion on Steve and Tracy’s wedding day – and now Steve’s life is in tatters! There’s a long road ahead, with an always-vengeful Tracy looking for payback for being wronged and the distinct prospect that a now-departed Jim will slither back into Weatherfield in 2019 to cause more family angst.
Steve’s wedding-eve fling with his ex Leanne won’t be forgotten, either, so the poor bloke must be prepared to cop it from all sides, deepening his hatred for his father – as Jim was the rotten egg responsible for most of his aggravation in the first place! ALSO ON CORRIE:
