In upcoming scenes, Sally dresses up as a clown for Speed Daal's charity fun day in aid of Jack Webster.

As she takes to the stage to thank everyone for their fundraising efforts, however, the police arrive and arrest her on suspicion of fraud, bribery and money laundering!

But this is law-abiding Sally we're talking about!

For Sally, the worst thing is just the shame of it, that would be horrible for Sally, the fact that everybody on Coronation Street knows she’s gone to prison.

The shocking arrest follows conman Duncan Radfield's false allegations as he sets her up to take the fall for his £40k theft from the council.

Earlier this year, Duncan got his hands on a council grant - with help from a gullible Sally - after claiming that he was setting up a charity foundation in memory of his late wife.

But, little did Sally know, the foundation didn't really exist and Sally only realised she'd been duped when it was already too late.

This Friday (10 August), duplicitous Duncan blames Sally for everything after being arrested and Imran Habeeb agrees to take on his case.

Sally and husband Tim are left furious that Barlow's Legal Services agree to represent him.

After Sally is framed and arrested, she faces a tough battle ahead to clear her name.

While Tim tries to help, he ends up punching Duncan in an angry showdown and only makes things worse.

Eventually, Sally recruits the help of an old friend who is now a lawyer called Paula. But even that becomes a big sorry mess when she embarks on an affair with Sally's daughter Sophie!

In shocking future scenes, Sally eventually ends up in court to face trial for fraud.

Actress Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally, recently told "Sally will go through the criminal process - get your t'shirts ready! It is going to be quite a big story, coming up through the autumn."

Contemplating a spell in jail for her character, she continued: "For everything to be taken away from you and locked in a room without your family and all those things is bad.

"But for Sally, the worst thing is just the shame of it, that would be horrible for Sally, the fact that everybody on Coronation Street knows she’s gone to prison."

Viewers will remember the famous campaign in 1998 to free Deidre Barlow after she was innocently put behind bars.
