Grieving Daniel Osbourne will go to desperate lengths to prove that he’s serious about Bethany Platt in Coronation Street next week.

The young widower – who’s played by Rob Mallard in the ITV soap – is adamant that he’s over wife Sinead, who died tragically last year from cervical cancer.

And to convince new love interest Bethany (Lucy Fallon) that she’s the one he wants, he plans to propose to her.

His grand and not-at-all-going-to-end-badly gesture comes after Sinead’s angry aunt, Beth Tinker, confronts Bethany at Sarah and Adam Barlow’s wedding and congratulates her on airbrushing Sinead out of their lives.
