6 Coronation Street spoilers next week
1. Ed continues gambling and puts himself in more debt
Ed Bailey is in for a shock on Corrie next week as Grandad Sarge (Ram John Holder) arrives early. On Sarge's arrival, Ronnie (Vinta Morgan) suggests a big family meal, insisting that he and Ed will pay.
As the Bailey family get together at the bistro, Sarge makes digs about his business, not knowing they lost their house because of Ed's gambling.
Ed panics once he realises he'll have to pay for the meal, and so he scans the racing pages - but loses his bet. Ronnie pays for lunch, telling Ed he can give him half later.
Ed admits to Tony that he can’t pay him because he's a gambling addict and has lost all his money. As Ronnie approaches, Ed begs Tony not to say anything - will he reveal all?
Later on in the week, Sarge overstays his welcome, before admitting his business is struggling and that he needs to borrow £2,000. Ronnie tells him that he and Ed can get the money together and lend it to him. Will Ed come clean?
2. Gemma struggles to cope when Joseph falls ill
Joseph tells Gemma that he doesn't feel well, but Gemma is sceptical and sends him to school anyway.
But when Chesney (Sam Aston) is called out of work to pick up Joseph from school, he lashes out at Gemma for not realising he was ill. Chesney later suggests Gemma isn't coping and she takes offence, calling herself a terrible mother.
As the week continues, Chesney notices that Joseph still seems unwell, and so Gemma makes him a lavender tea in the hope he will start to feel better. Things take a turn for the worse when Joseph passes out.
A horrified Chesney calls an ambulance, and once they are at the hospital, the doctor explains that Joseph has been poisoned!
Chesney and Joseph return home from the hospital with a child protection officer, who wants to interview Gemma, who is horrified when Caitlin suggests Gemma may have poisoned Joseph on purpose. What will happen to Gemma and will Joseph be okay?

4. Lauren is wrongly accused of theft as she splashes the cash on an expensive gift
In the café, Shona (Julia Goulding) becomes irritated with Lauren (Cait Fitton) being on her phone. When Shona later catches Lauren away from the call centre, Lauren pretends she has swapped shifts. But what is she up to?
Later on the cobbles, Lauren gifts Max a new watch to thank him for all he has done for her, but he worries that she has spent too much. Lauren pretends she has been given a promotion at the call centre, before she is cornered by Sabrina - who tells her she is out of order for buying Max a watch.
Max later returns the watch to Lauren, explaining the gift is too generous, as a suspicious Shona listens in on the conversation.
As the day continues, Bernie counts the takings at the café and realises they are £80 short. Bernie tells Shona there is £80 missing from the till, and Shona then confronts Lauren and accuses her of stealing the money to buy the watch and suspends her. Will Lauren get her job back?
