Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street's Bobby Crawford is set to be arrested after lying in the Lauren Bolton murder case.

Viewers will know that Bobby recently deceived the police in an attempt to free Roy from prison – though new scenes will see this come back to haunt him.

The storyline begins as Carla closes down a conversation with DS Swain after being asked why she has fallen out with Roy.

Swain then visits Roy in prison and questions him point blank if his fallout with Carla is related to Bobby's suspicious statement.

Bobby is later arrested by Swain on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, as Swain tells Carla that Bobby's deception isn’t helping him or Roy.

Dee-Dee later realises Roy's defence is gone after Carla tells her about Bobby's arrest, having hoped that his statement would be enough to exonerate Roy.

The scenes will see Bethany continue her mission to try and prove evil Nathan Curtis is behind Lauren's murder, and as Sarah struggles to see her daughter at breaking point, she tries to plant evidence in Nathan's van to get rid of him.

However, Sarah is caught by new detective Kit Green, who urges her not to play games – though a new twist comes as the police make a discovery that could put Nathan in the frame.
