Viewers of Coronation Street were left in tears as the character Bernie Winter learned that she would be in prison when her son Paul Foreman passed away. Bernie, played by actress Jane Hazelgrove, had been involved in a catalogue scam to support her late friend Shelley and her own financial needs. She used the money she received to help care for her son, who is battling MND (Motor Neurone Disease). Last week, the family received the devastating news that Paul only had six months to live. However, in tonight's episode, Bernie received even worse news when she discovered the judge in her trial would not be lenient, despite Paul's circumstances.
A Heartbreaking Revelation
Back at home with Dev, Bernie tried to put on a brave face but ultimately broke down. She expressed her desperation to be with her son during his final months and her frustration at the unfairness of the situation. Bernie's emotional breakdown left fans sobbing alongside her, with many taking to social media to express their sympathy.
One viewer wrote, "Poor Bernie," while another said, "Bernie. You're killing me here." The final scene between Bernie and Dev was described as "heartbreaking" by another fan.
