Ashley isn’t the only person Daniel has to worry about.

In an upcoming instalment of Coronation Street the teacher gets into a fight with Max Turner and ends up throwing him down the stairs.

The school boy has made it clear he’s not a fan of the former journalist over the past few months after he accused him of having an inappropriate relationship with student Summer Spellman.

Max seeks out revenge after Daniel made a comment about his adoptive dad David Platt.

He steals the keys to Daniel’s apartment from a distracted Dev and plans on trashing the place, however he’s was caught red-handed.

Things are made worse when Daniel realises that the troublemaker has broken something very special to him.

The pair get in a huge fight and Max ends up falling down the stairs.

Will Max be ok?
