Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street's Alya Nazir receives a sinister threat in upcoming scenes of the ITV soap.

Max has had a very difficult year. First came his feud with former teacher Daniel Osbourne, and then he went on to struggle with being bullied at school.

As a result, he's being groomed by an extremist group who have begun to target the youngster while he's at his most vulnerable.

In upcoming scenes, Maria meets with Munir and Daryan to discuss plans for the refugee centre.

However, they soon grow nervous when eco-activist band Griff and his entourage approach.

As Griff confronts Maria, they show her the online petition that Max has set up opposing the centre.

As a result, it's clear that Maria is shocked to see so many signatures in support.

However, not everything is immediately clear. And, after some investigating, Maria discovers that nearly all the signatures on the petition were actually from fake accounts.

Maria addresses the Christmas market committee, sharing her plan to rename it a Winter Market and support the refugee centre.

Councillor Cameron objects to the change, but Maria overrules and leaves him fuming over her decision.

Later on, Alya confronts Griff over his racist comments and threatens to call his employer.

However, Griff isn't frightened. And instead, he ends up warning Alya that she'll regret it if she does.

Later in the week, Griff continues to spread hatred and lies by making out that he was attacked by four Muslim lads despite that not being the case.

Upon instruction from Griff, Max helps spread the lies by uploading a video of Griff's injuries together with a racist commentary.

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
