Coronation Street’s Daisy Midgeley victim of vile sex blackmail plot
DAISY Midgeley and Ryan Connor have tried to deny the lingering chemistry between them.
But when they finally let it take over, the Coronation Street barmaid is blackmailed by another resident of the cobbles.
Despite being engaged to Daniel Osbourne, the former Rovers barmaid portrayed by Charlotte Jordan has shared charged moments with Ryan Connor.
Ryan (played by Ryan Prescott) saved Daisy from an acid attack, taking most of the hit and, since then, the pair have been harbouring complicated feelings from one another.
Next week on ITV, another Weatherfield resident realises the pair are failing to keep their attraction to themselves and decides to take advantage of the situation.
This resident is none other than wayward teen Lauren Bolton (Cait Fitton), with whom Ryan moved in after leaving Carla Connor and Peter Barlow’s home.
Coming up next week, Ryan meets Daniel (Rob Mallard) and reveals he’s got cold feet about giving a talk to the kids in the STC.
Daniel is confident he’ll get a lot out of it and persuades Ryan to go with him.
The teacher later summons Daisy to the STC to help allay Ryan’s fears and the latter is grateful when she offers to give the talk with him.
Later on, Daisy praises Ryan’s performance at the STC and tells him it’s proof he can show his scars and can stop resorting to anonymously stripping off for cash – but will he agree?
While this remains to be seen, Ryan is still struggling with his steroids abuse and, after injecting himself, he sets off for a walk with Daisy.
But at the precinct, he accidentally gets sprayed with fizzy pop as Max Turner and his friend Gav lark about.
Ryan sees red and pins Gav to the ground, and has to be held back from punching his lights out.
Daisy’s stunned as Ryan breaks down in tears and is shocked when he confesses he’s been abusing steroids.
Back home, Ryan goes live on his fitness account, removing the filter and announcing it’s time to stop lying.
Ryan bravely reveals his face and opens up to his followers in a livestream video, confirming he’s closing the account and intends to start being himself again.
After watching the video, Daisy calls at Ryan’s flat and praises his bravery.
She pecks him gently on his scarred cheek, then on the lips and things soon escalate as he responds and they start kissing passionately.
Feeling awful for cheating on Daniel, Daisy regrets getting carried away but things go from bad to worse when they hear the teacher banging on the door.
This all brings viewers of the Manchester-based program to Lauren, who is struggling herself after her father was sent to prison for his involvement with far-right activist Griff Reynolds.

When Ryan confirms that he’s moving back to his Aunty Carla’s, Lauren’s thrown into panic, wondering how she will pay the bills by herself.
Lauren returns home to find Ryan packing his things and, after revealing that she knows he slept with Daisy, she demands £1000 to buy her silence but refuses to tell him why she needs the cash.
He tells a stunned Daisy who promises to come up with the money – but will Lauren really be subdued?
