Coronation Street's Max gets warning from David as extremism storyline continues

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Max Turner’s descent into the darker side of humanity has begun, with Coronation Street exploring extremism in an issue-based storyline.

The saga began on Friday (October 28) when Griff took Peter to an awkward concert, with the “eco-activist” band playing racist songs.

The former will soon set his sights on the vulnerable Max, who began tonight’s episode (October 31) in a spot of trouble.

The youngster was ganged upon by Blake and Chris when walking to school, being called an “entitled little snowflake” as he was shoved and pushed around against his will.

After seeing Max's bullies mock him further, Griff vowed to "teach them a lesson", throwing Chris to the ground before threatening them if they went near Max again.

During these events, Peter paid a visit to David after seeing Max and Griff together, informing him of Griff's extreme views after their concert last week.

After Max became a bit tipsy after drinking a few beers, Spider suggested he should head home, where David was waiting for him, warning him to be careful around Griff.

Unbeknownst to him, Max received a photo of the group together at the party, referring to them as a "good crowd" when David thought he was referring to his school club...

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