Coronation Street spoilers follow.
Coronation Street has revealed its action-packed Christmas and New Year storylines for the punters of the Rovers Return.
It's going to be an eventful festive period for those on the cobbles – in the run up to Christmas Day, Jenny and Daisy's plan to raise money to buy back the pub sees them resort to desperate measures. But will they be enough?
And, as if Daisy's Christmas holidays weren't stressful enough, her own future is put into jeopardy after her affair with Ryan is exposed, resulting in Daniel shunning her. She's not giving up hope though, and longs for the couple to make up.
For Carla, Christmas sees a heartbreaking departure for Peter. Since he killed Stephen, he has been battling old demons, and been consistently tempted by alcohol again. He decides to leave Weatherfield after struggling with Carla as she continues to attempt to get the factory up and running again; will Peter's departure and Carla's determination spell the end of their marriage?
Stephen's not the only one battling old struggles; Ed finds it difficult to resist gambling again, and the reappearance of Sarge only serves to send his self esteem plummeting further – to a new low that will hurt the entire Bailey family on Christmas Day.
Gemma and Paul are still struggling with mum Bernie's incarceration. Paul's MND diagnosis also means this Christmas might be his last, so he and Billy are determined to make every moment count – but Gemma's home life isn't much easier. Following accusations about her capability as a parent, she is struggling.
New Year comes with its own set of dramas; Bethany Platt is back. But is there more to her sudden arrival than meets the eye, or is she really just there to see her family?
This rocks Bethany's mum, Sarah – who is also shocked at the return of her ex-boyfriend Damon. She has spent New Year's Eve with estranged husband Adam, and begins to think that a reconciliation is possible between the pair, just in time for Damon to pull the rug from under her, take revenge on Adam, and try to win Sarah back.
Finally, Rob Donovan's son Bobby arrives on Carla's doorstep, sending her life into a spin. Is the arrival going to benefit Carla, or will there be more chaos on the cobbles?
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
