Coronation Street fans have been left in tears after last night’s special Barlow-focused episode that saw Daniel struggling to come to terms with the fact Sinead is refusing treatment for cancer.
Viewers flocked to social media to praise the soap for the moving and heart-wrenching scenes that focused solely on Daniel, Sinead, Peter and Ken.
After discovering that his dad had known about Sinead’s cancer for more than a week, Daniel went into meltdown, causing their already fractured relationship to shatter further.
After discovering that Sinead had decided to risk her own life for the sake of their unborn baby, Daniel took his frustrations out on Ken, and surprisingly in the end it was Peter who managed to talk Daniel around.
Fans were moved as Peter told his half bother that whatever he’s feeling towards Ken, his focus needs to be on supporting Sinead and their future together.
Twitter went into meltdown as fans shared their heartbreak at the devastating storyline…
While Ken was forced to overhear some home truths about his parenting skills as Peter and Daniel talked frankly in the garden, it seems Peter’s words hit home with his younger sibling.
By the end of the episode Daniel and Sinead had made up, agreeing to face whatever was thrown at them together.
But Sinead’s cancer battle is set to continue for the foreseeable future, with Katie McGlynn, who plays the mum-to-be, admitting recently that even she doesn’t know how this storyline ends for her character.
The actress revealed on ITV’s Lorraine: “I don’t know what happens at the end. I only know the storyline is going well into next year.”
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
