Yasmeen is uneasy about the news, remembering how Jude fainted at the sight of blood on her first aid course.

But Roy is supportive and promises Jude a cheque for £5k to cover the costs of the course.

Mary then answers a call on Jude’s phone and discovers that he walked out of an exam at the university and has been lying to them all again.

What will she do?

A journalist comes to talk to Jude about the Good Samaritan award he’s been nominated for but when Mary discovers that Roy has given Jude a cheque, she tells him to tell Roy and Angie the truth or she will.

Later Mary tries to return the cheque to Roy who soon realises that something dodgy is going on.

As Geoff hosts the Good Samaritan awards at Speed Dahl, Mary can’t bear to hear all the good things being said about her son and she slips out of the awards, followed by Roy.

Roy convinces Mary to go back to the awards and she arrives just in time to see Jude collect an award.

Will she be able to keep quiet?

It was revealed last month that Mary would be the victim of Jude’s rage as he violently attacks her in upcoming episodes.

The storyline, published exclusively in The Sun, describes how florist Mary (Patti Clare) becomes the victim of domestic abuse as her troubled son turns nasty rather than confront his mental issues.

Jude has previously lied about being a marine biologist, and soon he lies again when he tries to claim credit for saving Roy Cropper’s life – when, in fact, it was Dr Ali Neeson.

Furthermore, an amazed Angie is bowled over all the more as Jude continues with the fibs and announces his intention to train as a paramedic, having realised his true calling!

And when an upset Mary confronts Jude about his untruths, he gets physical with her.

In quotes printed in the newspaper, an insider says: “When Jude is exposed as a pathological liar, Mary confronts him and tries to get to the bottom of why he does it.

“But when she tries to get answers, he gets physical with her and leaves her utterly terrified.

“She confides in Roy about how scared she is of him and admits her fears that he has got his father’s violent streak.”

The source added: “Roy tries to support her and says she needs to come clean about what Jude is doing for everyone’s sake.

“But it remains to be seen whether she will or how violent he’ll get to cover his tracks.”

Fans of the ITV soap know that Mary was forced to give Jude up after being brutally raped as a teenager.

Could Jude have the same violent streak as his rapist father?

And will Mary continue to defend her mixed-up son, or will she be forced to report him to the police?
