Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has confirmed that the DS Swain daughter storyline will begin next week.

Last month, it was revealed that the detective's child will be introduced on the soap, with star Vicky Myers teasing that the teenager will be "feisty, opinionated and educated".

Details about scenes airing next week have now been unveiled, the storyline beginning as Carla continues to have dealings with Swain as part of the ongoing Lauren Bolton investigation.

Carla offers support to Swain when she overhears the detective rowing with her daughter on the phone. Swain then reveals that her partner passed away and her daughter has been struggling with her grief.

Later on in the week, Swain's daughter is offered work experience at the factory by Carla – but will she accept?

Speaking previously about the storyline, Vicky told TV Times: "[Swain is] a single mum and a lot of people can relate to that.

"We're in the process of casting her 16-year-old daughter, and I think it's fair to say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree – she's feisty, opinionated and educated.

"It's going to be interesting watching Swain juggling her professional and personal lives. Also, we know she's gay, so is there another mother and, if so, is she involved?" she added.

Vicky also spoke about taking on a permanent role on the soap, explaining: "I was coming to the end of my contract last October after being involved in the Stephen Reid storyline.

"There were questions about what we were going to do with Swain, and [then-producer] Iain MacLeod said, 'We need a chat'.

"There were different pitches, a couple I thought would be creatively challenging and make interesting stories, so it was a no-brainer."

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
