Coronation Street spoiler: Sally’s sick stalker is finally revealed

Sally is devastated to find out that the troll is someone close to home

| Updated:

Coronation Street’s Sally Webster has been frightened out of her skin in recent weeks by the mounting terror campaign from an unknown troll.

But it looks as though she – along with the rest of us – is finally about to discover who has been tormenting her.

Last night’s episode saw daughters Rosie and Sophie turn all Cagney and Lacey as they stormed the offices of the local paper in the hope it would lead them closer to their suspect.

Sally’s ‘obituary’ had appeared in the rag and Sophie guessed there would be a paper trail back to whoever had sent it.

While there, they happened upon the photographer who’d worked on a recent piece about Rosie – and they pumped him for information.

In scenes screened next week, the desperate pair will visit an address they have been supplied with and confront a young girl, Leah.

She tells them the culprit is her step-mum, Gina – Sally’s SISTER.

Gina is returning to the soap for the first time since 1989 – she was previously played by Julie Foy, but is now played by former The Bill actress Connie Hyde.

Her character previously appeared in the soap for two years, where her storylines included having a one-night stand with Martin Platt.

In an image released to Facebook, Sally’s husband is seen sitting in a car with Gina, presumably confronting her over the girls’ findings, in an upcoming episode.

It has been reported that she is struggling with an addiction to the drug Spice, heralding a very dark and devastating new storyline for Corrie.

Some viewers were quick to suspect that Gina is the mystery troll.

“#CoronationStreet OK let’s put you all out of your misery Sally’s stalker is her long lost sister Gina,” wrote one.

Others claimed the storylines were too dark. “The storylines are getting too intense – we want to be entertained,” wrote one.

“Get some humour back into Corrie,” wrote another.
