Tracy McDonald may be all smiles as she returns from her honeymoon to Coronation Street – who wouldnt be chuffed after abandoning their new husband in a Moroccan desert without a passport or a wallet?
But she soon gets a wake up call as she hears the news about Ronans death and when she discovers that Michelle Connors car was involved in the crash, she pales to realise that she may be to blame for the carnage.
Its not the first time that Tracys actions have led to death of course – she murdered Charlie Stubbs in cold blood and started a fire that led to the deaths of Kal Nazir and Maddie Heath. And this time, she is determined to get away with it again as she pledges to put Abi Franklin in the frame.
Tracy had tampered with Michelles car to try and get Abi in trouble with Kevin at the garage but now she fears that she went too far. When the police come to ask questions, Tracy realises that she needs to get rid of the garages CCTV footage.
She nabs Abis keys and steals the laptop containing the CCTV before stashing it in her flat. When the police come for Abi, she tells them with exasperation that they can look at the CCTV themselves.
Of course, when they arrive at the garage and find the laptop stolen, the suspicions of DS MacKinnon grow to new heights and she suggests that Abi was in league with drug dealer Ronan.
Abi is horrified and when Kevin doubts her, she lashes out and makes things worse for herself. Tracy may feel guilty – especially when she learns that this could see Abi lose her twins forever – but is she guilty enough to put this right?
Or will she let Abi take a devastating fall?
