Coronation Street confirms Max's big decision after arrest

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has revealed an uncertain future for Max Turner after he's arrested on a serious charge.

Max's racist online videos come back to haunt him this week as they're linked to a shocking incident at Speed Daal.

As we've previously revealed, Max's former bully Blake targets the restaurant while Maria Connor is hosting a drop-in session for refugees.

There's a terrible incident as Blake's sinister plan unfolds, and he later tells the police that Max's videos inspired him.

Max is later arrested on suspicion of incitement to murder, much to the horror of his dad David.

When the repercussions air next week, David receives a further worrying update from Max's solicitor.

David is informed that Max's charge has been increased to Encouragement of Terrorism, which could lead to a 10-year sentence.

David is given hope of a better outcome for Max when his solicitor Harriet pays a visit.

Harriet suggests that Max was groomed by Griff and the court could show leniency if he's seen as a victim too.

Although David feels reassured, he's aware that Harriet's fees are expensive. Determined that Max should have the best legal advice, David vows to find the funds.

Later in the week, David confides in Maria that Max has stopped taking his calls.

David ends up knocking back whiskey as he tries to forget about his worries over Max for a while.

He then tells Maria that Max has taken matters into his own hands and pleaded guilty, so is now awaiting sentencing.

Meanwhile, Alya Nazir crosses paths with David at the café and assures him that he's not to blame for Max's actions.

Will the teenager be going to jail after his involvement with Griff?
