Mary’s new heartache
SHE’S REUNITED WITH HER SON – BUT AN UNPLEASANT DISCOVERY IS IN STORE…
Mary is thrilled this fortnight, as her private detective comes up trumps and tracks down Jude in Blackpool. Mary wastes no time in racing after her son – and can’t hide her happiness on seeing him again. But her relief is short-lived, once she meets Jude’s new other half – who’s under the impression that Jude is a surgeon… “Can you believe it? Jude is up to his old tricks again already!” tuts our Corrie insider. “He left the Street in disgrace – having fibbed to his wife Angie for years about being a marine biologist, before lying that he’d saved Roy’s life. He’s put his poor mum through hell since going AWOL, and she was starting to believe that he might be dead. He’ll wish he was once Mary works out what he’s up to now!”
Having roped in Roy for moral support on the trip to Blackpool, Mary and her pal locate Jude – and she immediately begs him to return to Weatherfield with her. Jude claims that he can’t leave because he owes £500 to the owner of the B&B he’s staying at – but Mary is having none of that. Dashing off to a cashpoint, she selflessly proceeds to draw out the funds Jude needs. And while she’s gone, Jude’s new girlfriend Kelly emerges.
“Despite everything, Mary doesn’t think twice about bailing out Jude,” sighs our sneak. “But it’s Roy who first realises what Jude is up to, when this Kelly woman

refers to the fella as ‘Dr Ken Barlow’ – the cheek of it! Even after Mary’s been brought up to speed with her untrustworthy son’s latest ruse, though, she’s still not ready to cut all ties…”
Generously handing over the cash that she’s promised Jude, Mary tells her son that she’ll be waiting in the car for him while he clears his debt and packs up. Once again giving her boy the benefit of the doubt, Mary is hoping against hope that Jude might finally see sense and join her. But is she right to believe he’ll finally do the noble thing – or is the poor woman about to have her heart broken all over again?
