The future is looking deeply uncertain for a very worried Sally Metcalfe in Coronation Street as con man Duncan sets out to ensure that she takes the blame for the fraud that saw him walk off with £40k of the councils money.
Sally was duped into believing that Duncan was fundraising for a charity relating to stroke treatment but his sob story was all in aid of tugging at her heart strings so that she would naively sign over the cash. He then did a disappearing act and Sally had to step down as mayor as she tried to explain that she knew nothing of his plans.
Next week though, Duncan is apprehended by police and Imran Habeeb heads to the station to meet him. Duncan explains that he has been charged with fraud for stealing charity funds but he assures his lawyer that he was coerced into it by Sally.
Knowing Sally fairly well and not sure about Duncans story, Imran is dubious but Duncan insists that he has hard evidence. Imran agrees to take on the case, despite Adam Barlow warning him against it due to Sally being well liked and respected in the community.
Meanwhile, an oblivious Sally and Tim host a BBQ and there is laughter and frolics all round. But little does she know her life is about to be shattered in the worst way…
One to watch: Friday 10th August at 8:30pm on ITV.
