Viewers already know that Gordon raped his son during childhood, a secret that Aaron will finally disclose to mum Chas.
And despite worrying about how investigating officers will prove the allegations, Aaron will then pay a visit to the police station to talk through what happened.
But it looks as though Cain’s attempts to persuade Gordon to tell the truth about his murky past will backfire, when Gordon unleashes a blackmail plot.
