MAX Turner could be set for an early release from the Secure Training Centre but is staying guarded.

Regular viewers of the ITV drama will remember Max (portrayed by Paddy Bever) is serving a six-month sentence for his part in Griff Reynolds’ far-right activities.
But while he remains in the STC, his former arch nemesis and teacher Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) keeps an eye on him.
When an argument breaks out in the centre, Max steals the teacher’s phone but as Daniel’s lesson draws to a close, he slips the phone back on his desk.
Later on at No.1, Daniel scrolls through his phone where he finds Max’s video diary.
In the Rovers, Daniel finally takes time to watch Max’s heart-rending video – but what will the youngster say in the clip?
While this remains to be seen, Daniel tells his father Ken (William Roache) and other half Daisy Midgeley (Charlotte Jordan) about the video and how he intends to help Max.
Meanwhile, David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) visits his son, hoping he can get the teen to finally open up to him in the same way he did in his video but Max gives nothing away.
In the classroom, Daniel tries to have a quiet word with Max about his video but he refuses to discuss it.
To make matters worse, Max is cornered by one of the lads named Gav ahead of their lesson together.
Max is accused of being very pally with Daniel so, in a bid to earn Gav’s approval and be left in peace, the youngster disrupts the class.
Unfortunately, things only get worse from then as Daniel finds Daisy’s spare phone – the one she’s been using to impersonate Crystal for Ryan Connor – and records a message for Max.
In his message, Daniel suggests that if there’s anything bothering Max, he can record it on the phone.
Max is eventually given the phone but when Daisy finds out where her spare mobile is, she demands to have it back as soon as possible.
Will Max open up fully to Daniel?
Can Daniel really help him?
And will Daisy be exposed for texting Ryan behind everyone’s backs?
Coronation Street airs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8pm on ITV.
