As we saw tonight (November 16), Maria Connor and other residents decided to turn the community centre into a place where refugees can seek support, after witnessing Griff give a hate-filled public speech there.

In upcoming scenes, Griff will rope Spider into giving leaflets that accuse refugees of trying to take over the community and forcing the local people out. Maria sees Spider doing this and rages at him, and it's clear that Spider feels dreadful for what he's doing, but can't blow his cover.

But while he's thinking about the bigger picture, will he lose all his friends in the process?

The upcoming scenes will also see David Platt start to investigate Griff's gang in an attempt to find out what Max Turner is up to, after the youngster has started hanging out with the group and using his computer skills to spread their hateful messages and discredit others. Can David convince Max he's being groomed, or has he been manipulated too much?

Maria and Alya Nazir will also find themselves targeted specifically by the gang in upcoming scenes.

Earlier this week, the soap aired shocking scenes of Daryan Zahawi being attacked by the gang. While Daryan went to the police about his attack, he was unable to prove that it was them as they covered their faces, and Griff was only brought in for questioning.

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on the ITV Hub.
