Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street will explore early menopause in a new storyline for Faye Windass.

Faye recently agreed to undergo some tests as a precaution after experiencing a false pregnancy.

The storyline saw Faye tell her boyfriend Craig Tinker that she was expecting a baby after receiving a positive pregnancy test result.

When Faye later feared she was losing the baby, she was rushed to hospital to get checked out. She then learned that she hadn't been pregnant and the test result was a mistake.

Next week, Faye visits the medical centre for a follow-up appointment and is told that she's going through an early menopause.

Dr Gaddas explains that Faye – who gave birth to her baby daughter Miley in 2015 – won't be able to have any more children.

Faye informs her father Tim Metcalfe about the news, then returns home to tell Craig.

As the young couple process the news, Craig's mum Beth can't resist meddling in their relationship again.

Beth insensitively tells Craig that he should end things with Faye because she can't have children.

Craig later shares Beth's cruel comment with Faye, but will he reassure her that he's committed to their future?

Last month, tabloid reports revealed that Ellie Leach – who plays Faye – had signed a new contract with Coronation Street, keeping her in the show for at least another year.

Faye had previously been absent from screens for several months after being jailed for attacking Adam Barlow in a case of mistaken identity.

Speaking to Digital Spy and other media at the start of the year, Ellie explained: "When I came back, everyone was like, 'Oh, what have you been doing?' And I was like, 'Nothing'. It was the most boring six months. I couldn't wait to get back to work.

"But when I came back, because I've been off for so long, there were new people and I felt so nervous. I've never been off that long before. I've been there like 11 years and I've never had that much time off."

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
