He’s revealed as a thief in upcoming scenes
Aware she’s edging dangerously close to bankruptcy, Debbie Webster is frightened she may lose everything she has built for herself.
After trying to organise events in the Bistro, the businesswoman portrayed by Sue Devaney has enlisted the help of Ryan Connor (played by Ryan Prescott).
The latter recently claimed he is up to his neck in debt.
In upcoming scenes of the long-running ITV soap, the pair hatch a plan and are ready to commit insurance fraud to get their hands on some spare money.
But everything will go south for them and Ryan is set to face some serious legal trouble.
Coming up, in the Bistro, Debbie instructs Ryan to stage a break-in to allow her to make a claim on the insurance.
However, she then tells him the robbery is off and Ryan is fuming.
While Casino Night is underway at the Bistro, Ryan tells Debbie he’ll take the opportunity to fuse the electrics and grab the cash they need from the safe.
The restaurant is soon plunged into darkness and Debbie reluctantly helps Ryan with his plan.
Bistro customers are put off Casino Night after the incident and head over to the Rovers, while Ryan stuffs the cash in his gym bag.
Unfortunately for him, Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) makes an entrance, prompting him to hide.
Leanne flicks the switch and the lights come back on, leading to Ryan coming out of his hiding place, clutching his bag of stolen cash and making out he has just arrived.
Customers in the Rovers are then told that Casino Night is back on at the Bistro by a confident Leanne.
But her blood runs cold when she realises all the money is gone.
As Ryan assures her that the cash is safely stashed in his bedroom, Debbie orders him to call the police.
In later scenes, police officer Craig Tinker questions Debbie, Leanne and Nick Tilsley about the break-in before calling into the Rovers to question Ryan.
Ed Bailey then reveals that the CCTV has a back-up circuit which wouldn’t have been affected by the power cut – something Ryan and Debbie clearly didn’t look into.
Ryan is revealed as the perpetrator when Craig plays the CCTV footage and is arrested on suspicion of theft.
Ronnie Bailey then accuses Debbie of orchestrating an insurance scam, seeing right through her plan, but Debbie denies it.
While he undergoes a tense police interview, Ryan calls Debbie and threatens to drop her in it, realising he has lost everything.
