Plus Bev Callard can’t watch “emotional” co-star tribute
When Street murderer John Stape’s crimes are discovered, his wife Fiz will fear that she’ll be sent to prison for her part in John’s murderous spree…
So it seems she decides that the best way forward is to ask long term friends Roy and Hayley to adopt her daughter Hope.
And when cops turn up and arrest her, it appears she could well go away for a long stretch behind bars!
The Daily Star reports, “Fiz, played by Jennie McAlpine, 26, will be offered the chance to have Hope in prison with her in a mother and baby unit.
“But convinced she’ll get a life sentence, she refuses and hands her over to pals Hayley and Roy Cropper (Julie Hesmondhalgh, 41, and David Neilson, 62) to bring up as their own.”
Fiz sobs to Roy, “I just want Hope to have a good life and I can’t give her that any more.
“I never want her to know who her real mum is and what I have done. I want her to grow up thinking she’s your daughter.
“I want you to promise me you’ll never tell her anything about me.”
Fiz’s will be arrested when new evidence implicates her in the murders of Colin Fishwick and his mum Joy, as well as Charlotte Hoyle.
And as Fiz has already lied to the police about her involvement, she has to accept that the case against her is very strong.
However, her brother Chesney (Sam Aston, 17) can’t accept that Fiz is prepared to give up her daughter, but when he visits Fiz in prison, she tells him, “I’ve lied about the murders and I’ve lied about the money I stole from Colin’s mum.
“I’m going to be in prison for a long time and I don’t want Hope growing up in a place like this.
“My poor cellmate even committed suicide this morning.”
Those scenes will air in the summer.
In other news, Bev Callard, who of course recently left the show and her role as Liz McDonald, has revealed that she still hasn’t watched the tribute tape she was given when she left as it would make her pine for her old pals.
The Sun reports, “The video features the highs and lows of her character Liz McDonald, as well as extra scenes and tributes from her colleagues on the show.”
Bev told the paper, “I’ve not been able to bring myself to watch it yet because I know I’ll just be crying the whole way through.
“I’ll always be loyal to Corrie, and of course the door has been left open for me to return.”
Bev has apparently already been booked up with work for the next two years, added, “I’ve been offered everything from drama to comedy on stage and TV.”
Bev has spent this week working in London, but she’s staying tight-lipped about the project.
