Coronation Street: Gary tries to help Kelly

Kelly is struggling to come to terms with the death of both of her parents. She gets a shock when she finds out she stands to inherit everything from Rick.

She asks Gary to go and check on the family home for her, and he’s faced with a photo of a smiling Rick, which chills him to the bone.

Gary packs some things up and takes them to Kelly. However, the memories become too much and she runs away.

Alone in Victoria Garden, Kelly takes out her mum’s bottle of morphine. Just as she unscrews the cap, Abi walks by and stops her.

Meanwhile, with Rick’s funeral looming, Maria decides she probably shouldn’t attend. She doesn’t believe it’s good for her image on the council to go to the funeral of a known criminal.

Gary is furious that she would put her reputation over helping Kelly and tells Maria she needs to put their ward first.

Maria changes her mind, but she could live to regret it…

At the funeral, Maria, Gary and Kelly try to put the sins of the past behind them.
