Coronation Street fans are terrified Sinead Tinker will die at Christmas as she loses her cancer fight.
Viewers have watched in tears this week as pregnant Sinead broke down in the hospital after being told she had cervical cancer.
But it’s set to get worse for fans with them convinced the factory worker is going to lose her battle with cancer in a heartbreaking Christmas storyline.
One worried fan tweeted: “Sinead or baby to die at Christmas I reckon.”
A second added: “Sad Christmas for the Barlows when Sinead dies #corrie”
Another wrote: “I already feel heartbroken about Sinead dying.”
Actress Katie McGlynn has received rave reviews for her performance in the storyline.
She recently addressed the possibility Sinead would die, insisting she wasn’t concerned about anything other than her performance.
"I need to get my head around it. I need to decide about the treatment"

Katie said: “”I was just excited. I thought, whatever the outcome is, it is what it is and I’m just happy to play the role.
“So I’ve been really laid back about it all. Maybe I’m too laid-back!”
The soap was slammed for aspects of the storyline last week when Sinead was told she had the cancer.
As she broke down in the hospital corridor, viewers were disgusted by the scene that showed NHS nurses ignoring her sobbing.
One furious viewer tweeted the soap to say: “@itvcorrie Portraying Sinead distraught at the hospital…
“No nurse would just walk past without asking or checking if she was okay.. Disappointed for all those caring nurses that watched that episode. Bad call Corrie.”

Another added: “I would be devastated if the nurses ignored the distress my daughter was in #Corrie #Sinead could do better scriptwriters.”
A third said: “In real life if you was crying and panicking in a hospital corridor a nurse would say something.
“But in Corrie when Sinead ran out of the room crying they acted like she wasn’t even there? #corrie”
