Coro’s fiery Jim set to return?
Has Jim McDonald (Charles Lawson, right) literally been wasting away in the slammer? Coronation Street producers hint the familiar face will return, addressing his battle with myotonic dystrophy, a hereditary condition causing muscles to waste away. Coro fans will recall Steve McDonald’s panic when Jim, his father, called to warn he may have inherited the disease. Steve got the all clear, but producers warn there will be bad blood during the impending father-son reunion.
