Coronation Street spoilers follow.
Coronation Street stalker Justin has turned nastier with Daisy in sinister scenes.
In Friday's episode (February 24), Daniel wondered whether him and Daisy should postpone their wedding day until Justin was properly dealt with.
Daisy had another frightening encounter with Justin as he approached her with a bouquet of flowers in the street. Daisy destroyed the flowers and then punched Justin in a flurry of anger.
Justin insisted his mum has actually died, so he was bringing the flowers to visit George about funeral arrangements. This caused Daisy to rush off and collapse into Daniel's arms.
The couple tried to talk through everything and agreed they'd press on with their wedding, until PC Jess asked Daisy to come to the station because Justin accused her of assault.
Down at the station, PC Jess was alarmed to find out that colleague PC Scott had been following Daisy's online activity.
However, the coppers soon revealed that Justin had dropped the assault accusation and taken full responsibility for triggering the incident.
Justin turned up in the pub demanding to talk to Daisy, insisting he wasn't "going anywhere" until she'd agree to speak with him. Even though some of the punters stepped up to Justin, Daisy agreed to hear him out.
"I know what I'm doing," she assured Daniel.
With Daniel at her side, Daisy tried to make it as clear as possible to Justin that he was nothing to her and "never will be", and he initially seemed to get the message as he scuppered off.
Later, Daisy visited PC Jess where she learned PC Scott had been officially reprimanded for following her online. Jess also encouraged Daisy to obtain a stalking protection order against Justin.
Daisy was wrong to think she was rid of Justin, as he cornered her on the cobbles with some terrifying threats. She ordered him to stay away or she'd take out a protection order.
Justin only backed off when some other people on the street noticed how terrified Daisy was. These scenes are leading to yet more horror for Daisy when Justin throws acid at her in the Rovers.
