Toyah has faced an emotional setback in the ongoing murder case in Coronation Street.

Now facing a potential trial, Toyah had to grapple with whether her own sister Leanne believed she would have never tried to harm Imran in the recent car crash.

In Wednesday's (June 15) episode, Leanne grappled with whether Toyah could have crashed the car without being suicidal.

Leanne reckoned that Toyah must have wanted to hurt herself because only "a stunt driver" would have thought they'd walk away from the crash unscathed.

Over at the police station, Toyah was growing increasingly uncomfortable with her lawyer's demands to testify that she was actually feeling suicidal in order to get diminished responsibility.

"It could mean a lighter sentence, if not better," her lawyer claimed.

Toyah was unwilling to pretend to be suicidal, so Nick agreed to tap into the company funds to find a new lawyer that could better understand Toyah's state of mind.

Leanne called up Toyah in the prison with some good news — Nick and Debbie would be helping her look for a new lawyer to take over the case.

"I just couldn't pretend I was suicidal," Toyah told Leanne. "I didn't try and kill anyone, I mean, you believe me, don't you?"

When Leanne paused before telling Toyah she believed her, Toyah picked up on the hesitation and asked, "Why the minute's silence?" before answering.

"If my own sister thinks I did it, what hope have I got?" Toyah asked.

Will Toyah convince her loved ones she's innocent?

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