Johnny Connor has been displaying some worrying symptoms over recent months and his worst fears are confirmed next week when he’s diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
He’s so shaken that he even hides the news from daughter Kate, saying that it’s only an infection and is nothing to worry about.
But he’s even more concerned when fiancee Jenny Bradley starts telling him about her plans for an action packed honeymoon.
Johnny makes a tough decision about their future – does this involve a broken heart for Jenny?
When Kate hears what’s happened she confronts Johnny, wanting answers. This time he admits to her that he’s been diagnosed with MS.
A scared Johnny confesses that he doesn’t want Jenny to find out and he absolutely doesn’t want her having to become his carer.
Later, Johnny has a serious fall in the flat by himself and ends up unconscious.
When Kate finds out, she’s determined that the whole family need to hear the truth. But will she tell Aidan and Jenny against Johnny’s wishes?
There are rumours and theories that Corrie bosses are about to kill Johnny off, leaving Jenny in charge of the knicker factory.
And don’t forget the HUGE NEWS that Carla Connor could be on her way back to the cobbles – could Johnny’s illness be what brings her home?
