Sinead Tinker will get some potentially devastating news in Corrie next week when she goes for her 12 week pregnancy scan.
The Underworld worker reveals she’s preggers to her auntie Beth but soon confesses that she’s been bleeding for weeks.
Beth pleads with Sinead to get some medical advice but the machinist is in denial and is delighted when she and boyfriend Daniel Osbourne see their baby on screen.
Sinead then sends Daniel on a mystery errand and takes the time to tell the sonographer about the bleeding.
To her horror she’s then examined by an obstetrician who discovers a lump on her cervix.
Sinead is left feeling shaken when she’s told the lump could be cancerous and she might need to consider aborting her baby if she needs treatment.
A horrified Sinead heads homes prepared to tell Daniel her news but is floored when he tells her he’s had a letter from his mum.
Daniel says he doesn’t care and the only things that matter to him are Sinead and their baby.
Sinead make the heart-breaking decision to keep her cancer scare to herself.
Sinead’s cancer scare was revealed last month when The Sun revealed Sinead would discover she had cancer.
Meanwhile there’s wedding fever in Coronation Street next week with not one, but two weddings being planned.
Steve and Tracy’s wedding plans have been dragging on for months, but it seems like all the talk of getting married has made Daniel realise he wants to make fiancée Sinead his wife sooner rather than later and so he sets about planning a surprise wedding.
But while he is thinking about cakes and flowers, little does he know his pregnant wife-to-be is harbouring a huge secret.
oth Sinead and Daniel are thrilled to see their baby on the screen at the scan, but it’s only after she sends a happy Daniel off on an errand that Sinead tells the sonographer that she has been bleeding for weeks.
Thankfully she is seen by a doctor sharpish, who reveals to a terrified Sinead that they have found a lump on her cervix that needs further investigation.
Warned that the lump could well be cancerous, Sinead is devastated when the doctors reveal she could need chemo and might have to face the prospect of terminating her pregnancy.
But instead of telling Daniel the truth so they can face the future together, the scared mum-to-be keeps quiet.
Meanwhile, Daniel gets a letter from his mum but he’s not interested in what she has got to say, telling Sinead that the only things that matter to him are her and their baby.
Instead of taking this moment to tell Daniel the truth about her lump, she keeps quiet, not wanting to shatter his happiness.
So while Sinead faces going to a biopsy appointment alone, little does she know Daniel is making arrangements for their surprise wedding day.
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
