The new year will get off to an awful start for Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) who will be found floating unconscious in a freezing river at the beginning of January.
Hard man Cain will be seen suffering a series of dizzy spells, but his decision not to do anything about his symptoms and ignore the advice of medical professionals is to have terrible repercussions.
In the episode to be shown on Friday 9 January, Cain faints and collapses before falling into a river. Soon, Kirin (Adam Fielding) and Vanessa (Michelle Hardwick) find him – but is it already too late for Cain? Will his denial about what’s happening to him have sealed his fate?
