An upcoming episode of Coronation Street will see Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) pay a visit to his jailbird dad Jim (Charles Lawson).
In scenes to be shown on Monday 15 September, Steve will be seen turning up at the jail to thank Jim for saving the life of alcoholic fellow prisoner Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne), little realising that it was his father’s illicit booze that landed him in hospital in the first place.
Jim’s thrilled to see his son and makes a strong effort to tug at Steve’s heartstrings. But are the pair set for a reconciliation following years of no contact? Or will the enmity between the McDonalds remain in place?
