Coronation Street's Lydia pushed Adam during a heated confrontation (ITV)

The drama continues in Wednesday’s Coronation Street as Adam Barlow’s (Sam Robertson) fate remains uncertain thanks to scheming Lydia Chambers (Rebecca Ryan).

Viewers have seen Adam’s former fling Lydia wage war on him in recent weeks, fooling his wife Sarah (Tina O’Brien) into believing they were having an affair. She then framed Adam for criminal damage on her flat when the wreckage was all her own work.

Sarah fell hook, line and sinker for Lydia’s lies, and began divorce proceedings against her husband. On Monday, Adam took action by sneakily sending Lydia a text from Sarah’s phone to arrange a meeting.

Adam was framed by a vengeful Lydia (ITV)

While Lydia underwent a traumatic experience, Adam dumped her and never looked back — until she arrived in Weatherfield and clapped eyes on him for the first time in a decade, and he failed to even recognise her.

Although Adam tried to apologise for his awful behaviour, Lydia turned on him when she realised he was only doing so to get her to tell Sarah the truth. In the ensuing altercation, Lydia pushed Adam from a balcony just as his uncle Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) arrived in search of him.

While he hadn’t actually seen Lydia push Adam, Daniel had heard her shouting and he later told doctors he knew who was behind the accident.
