Lewis Archer has been behaving characteristically shifty recently after Gail Rodwell spotted him chatting closely in a hotel with another woman and he then warned her to back out of her business in Coronation Street. But Audrey Roberts is convinced theres a totally innocent explanation tonight and heads to the Bistro to meet Lewis for a dinner date.
While a future storyline looks set to see Lewis die as Nigel Havers leaves the role, he may be about to commit the ultimate betrayal first as Audrey is stood up at the eatery and begins to concede that Gail may be right.
And her heart is left further broken when she discovers the vast amount of money left to her by Archie Shuttleworth has been stolen from her bank account. Has Lewis snatched the money with his other woman and done a bunk?
Feeling a fool and with her heart broken, Audrey breaks down in tears on Maxines bench as she struggles to get her head around how her recent happiness has been snatched away. But by the end of the week, she has decided that she is going to shed no more tears over Lewis.
Will she ever get her money back? And is she as strong as she is making out or is she destroyed inside?
Coronation Street airs the dramatic twists on New Years Day at 8pm on ITV in an hour long episode.
