what happened in coronation street tonight
Coronation Street has worked with the stillbirth and neonatal death charity Sands on harrowing scenes which will devastatingly see Michelle lose her baby boy at 23 weeks.
Michelle and her husband Steve McDonald, played by Simon Gregson, will struggle to come to terms with the loss of their son Ruairi after she goes into early labour.
Actress Kym, who lost her son Archie at a similar stage of pregnancy, felt that, because it was a subject so close to her heart, she wanted to help raise awareness of the issues surrounding late miscarriage.
Also tonight Aidan Connor confides in his girlfriend Eva that his factory Underworld could go bust because of the actions of the Barlow bully boys and Eva decides to take matters into her own hands.
Michelle and Steve's story tonight features scenes and images some viewers may find distressing. For support https://t.co/XAghCEzABt #Corrie pic.twitter.com/idu8ioK1kZ
