Will Bernie face prison? (Picture: ITV)
Lies always come back to bite people on Coronation Street, and Bernie Winter (Jane Hazlegrove) is currently trying to hide what happened when Joseph (William Flanagan) went missing and she and Clint agreed to share the reward money.
Although Bernie’s motives are basically sound – she wants to help out Chesney (Sam Aston), Gemma (Dolly-Rose Campbell) and the kids – the secret becomes harder and harder to keep.
Bernie has a hard time keeping Joseph and Hope (Isabella Flanagan) quiet about what’s going on, but it’s Evelyn (Maureen Lipman) who starts to really suspect something fishy.
When Bernie gives Joseph a video game that he wanted, she tells him not to show his mum and dad, but Evelyn discovers it and assumes Joseph has been stealing. Bernie has to think quickly and tells Evelyn she bought it with a pay rise from Dev (Jimmi Harkishin).
Even though Dev backs her story up, after Bernie tells him that she doesn’t want Chesney to feel bad about her buying gifts, Evelyn is not convinced.
Evelyn eventually starts to piece together that Bernie’s sudden wealth could have something to do with Joseph’s disappearance – and she calls the police.
As Bernie desperately tries to give her version of the story, will she be believed – or is she about to spend 2022 in jail?
