TOYAH Battersby was spared from anymore drama following the death of her husband Imran Habeeb last year.

Unfortunately for her, life in Coronation Street can never be smooth sailing. Next week, she is kidnapped by a dangerous criminal.

Toyah Battersby is kidnapped by a dangerous criminal next week

What does she want?

And what will Spider Nugent do?

Living as an undercover copper in the cobbles becomes a source of deadly trouble for Spider Nugent (portrayed by Martin Hancock).

Coming up on ITV, his week begins with a meeting with his superintendent who informs him about a new job which would mean moving away with a new identity.

Knowing that it could protect him from far-right activist Griff Reynolds, who is out for blood, could Spider accept the offer?

This remains to be seen yet his relationship with long-time flame Toyah Battersby (Georgia Taylor) will be left in jeopardy by a shocking discovery.

When she finds bank statements showing Spider’s nowhere near as skint as he’s been making out, a paranoid Toyah goes through his laptop, discovering he’s been emailing his ex and searching for houses near her.

Under fire, Spider explains he’s been trying to accelerate his divorce and his savings went on something for her.

Spider produces a ring, dropping to one knee, and asks Toyah to marry him.

Could she say yes despite her troubled history with marriage?

Is Spider hiding another dark secret? 

Later on, danger knocks on their door and they get proof Griff isn’t the only villain they need to watch out for when Spider receives a message from his pursuer with instructions to meet.

Without letting on to Toyah, Spider informs his superiors and his colleagues watch covertly as he waits in the Freshco’s car park to meet his unknown enemy – but nobody turns up.

Meanwhile at the flat, a woman arrives to see Toyah, introducing herself as Spider’s wife.

While Toyah makes conversation, her sister Leanne (Jane Danson) bumps into Spider and is shocked when he reveals his wife isn’t even in the country.

Spider phones Toyah, scared for her life, and warns her the woman is an imposter.

Panicked, Toyah tries to act normal but when Leanne and Spider burst into the flat, they find signs of a disturbance, no Toyah or Sam, and blood on the floor. 

Could Toyah be fighting for her life?

Coronation Street airs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8pm on ITV.
