It’s your spoiler-filled guide to Coronation Street for the 16-20 August, 2021.
Tyrone shops Hope to the police
Fiz begins the week in a police cell, where she’s sticking to her story that she started the fire at the salon flat. But Alina is unhappy about the cover-up and points out that Hope could cause further harm – all of which results in Tyrone telling the police about who really caused the blaze.
So fans can expect Fiz to be released and Hope left facing the officers’ questions, with Evelyn acting as her appropriate adult. The youngster reveals that she used nail polish remover and a candle to set the cot alight – an admission that results in her being charged and facing a possible trial.

Tyrone, meanwhile, expresses his regret to Alina about the way things have turned out, saying he’d imagined they’d marry and start a family. But he’s left flabbergasted when Alina says she’s like to try again and that they should get wed! Has Tyrone just accidentally proposed?
Daisy wants Daniel
Daisy tries to impress a newly minted Daniel by claiming to be a lifelong fan of Lord Byron, only to be left embarrassed when Ryan queries why she’s been looking up Byron quotes on her iPad.
Daisy’s response is to ditch Ryan and set her sights ever more firmly on Daniel. The warped schemer even goes so far as to use a health scare involving young Bertie to her advantage when she claims to Daniel that it’s brought back painful memories of what happened to Jenny’s son Tom.
Thankfully, Bertie turns out to be fine, but there’s no guarantee that Daisy will get away with her plotting. Especially after Jenny lets Alya know that Ryan cheating on her didn’t happen in the way she thinks…
Nick, Leanne and Debbie make a deal on the Bistro
After a bit of argy-bargy over the price, Nick and Leanne will eventually go into partnership with Debbie at the Bistro. But Nick has concerns and tells Leanne that he reckons she and Debbie will clash once they start working together.
Annoyed by his sexist attitude, Leanne insists that women can work well together. A case in point comes on Wednesday when she and Debbie team up to take the Bistro’s fish supplier to task for trying to pull a fast one. As the guy exits in a quaking state, Nick reckons the two women will indeed be a formidable team.
Sally’s new campaign angers the locals
Sally will be seen refusing to park her anger after she gets issued with a ticket by Izzy’s friend Fergus, who happens to be a traffic warden.
In the belief that ticketing practices are exorbitant, she decides to launch a campaign against what she sees as the chaotic parking situation in the local area. Her idea is for residents of the Street to be issued with parking permits, but Tracy, Alya, Steve and Tracy all think the move would be catastrophic for their businesses.
The big question, though: where will the loyalties of Sally’s husband Tim lie when he learns of the likely impact on Street Cars?
Imran vents his anger
Toyah finds Imran asleep in his office, the exhaustion of working all hours on Kelly’s case having caught up with him. Over lunch at the Bistro, he explains all about his woes, noting that he’s having to defend Kelly solo while Corey has a sizeable legal team in his corner.
But when Leanne tells Imran that she’s on Abi’s side and not Kelly’s, the stressed-out solicitor erupts. And later on, it’s Toyah who gets it in the neck for not sticking up for him in front of her sister.
