DAMON Hay first rocked up Weatherfield in the hopes of fixing his relationship with his son Jacob.
But it becomes clear he’s also found himself a new love interest in Coronation Street.
Soap bosses confirmed Damon would be embarking on a romance with a well-established Corrie lady
But all hell breaks loose at the Bistro in upcoming scenes
Nick, Leanne and Damon are faced with two gunmen asking for drugs
Soap bosses promised the thug portrayed by Ciarán Griffiths would not only cause trouble in the cobbles but would also be embarking on a shock romance with a well-established Corrie lady.
Her identity is revealed in upcoming scenes of the Manchester-based ITV drama.
Next week, Dee-Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) calls at the Bistro looking for Damon.
Unfortunately for her, she won’t be seeing Damon for a while when Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) tells her he’s banged up in Weatherfield Police Station for drug dealing.
Dee-Dee is shocked but could she use her skills as a solicitor to come to his aid?
Could Damon only be using Dee-Dee as a get-out-of-jail-free card?
In scenes prior to this, all hell breaks loose in the Bistro as Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) confirms to Damon that drugs have been delivered.
As viewers will remember, Nick knows all about Damon’s shady business and even told Leanne all about it when he caught the thug getting too close to his young son Sam.
But things soon take a turn for the worst when two gunmen arrive at the Bistro, confronting Sam and Ryan Connor.
While the waiter is terrified, the young boy dives under a table and calls his father.
A gunshot is heard, prompting Nick, Leanne but also Damon to race towards the restaurant.
Later on, the police arrive, having been alerted to the gunshot, with a sniffer dog in tow…
Thankfully, Craig Tinker then lets Leanne know two men have been arrested, suspected of being responsible for the Bistro shooting horror.
Damon believes all is well… but Nick has a trick up his sleeve.
The businessman tells Damon to pick up the drugs he was left with as Leanne implores him to get rid of them.
Damon places the holdall in his car boot before climbing into his vehicle.
But he soon comes face to face with the police as their sirens ring out throughout Weatherfield.
What will Dee-Dee do?
Does she really have a future with Damon?
Could she set him on the right track and out of trouble for good?
Coronation Street airs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8pm on ITV.
