Coronation Street’s Daniel Osbourne has been put under arrest after confessing that he was the one responsible for pushing his dad Ken Barlow down the stairs.
The arrest came after investigating officers received a call from Daniel’s girlfriend Sinead, who found the bloodstained book that he’d used to commit the crime.
As an anguished Ken and Denise looked on, an emotionally distraught Daniel – who’d been seen earlier in the episode self harming by plunging his hands into scalding hot bath water – was taken into custody.
A preview scene from Thursday’s episode then saw Daniel in his cell, determined to make a full confession.
So, is Daniel about to face a prison sentence? Well, not just yet, it seems. Next week’s episodes of Coronation Street will see Ken’s attacker face further heartache when Sinead splits up with him.
But Ken appears to be in a more forgiving mood. Scenes to be shown on Wednesday 7 June see the Barlow patriarch convincing Daniel to burn the evidence of the attack and move on.
But what of the police investigation? Is an innocent Adam set to be released? And what will the rest of the family make of Ken’s attitude?
