The aftermath of Sinead’s death will begin to really take a toll on Ken

Ken panicked as Daniel seemed to understandably lose the plot and flee to the Highlands following his wife’s death, refusing to return for her funeral.

A highly strung Ken and partner Claudia Colby set off to track him down and bring him home but returned to the cobbles without the single dad.

Daniel then encountered his half brother, Peter Barlow, who told the grieving husband that Ken was worse for wear and urged him to return from Scotland for the sake of his family.

And in upcoming episodes things are only set to worsen as Kens health will unfortunately take a turn for the worse.



In the upcoming episodes a worried Peter will tell Adam that their Dad Ken is in hospital and has been diagnosed with potentially fatal pneumonia.

Could this be the end of the road for Ken or will his family be saved from further heartbreak?
