Tracy Barlow (played by Kate Ford) and Steve McDonald (Simon Greyson) were gobsmacked when they learned daughter Amy (Elle Mulvaney) is pregnant in Coronation Street.
When the parents found the teenager’s pregnancy test hidden underneath a pile of laundry in last night’s episode they confronted the schoolgirl.
While Amy admitted she was pregnant and confessed to attempting to terminate the pregnancy, she refused to reveal who the father of her unborn child is.
Later, Steve spotted Amy talking to Aadi Alahan (Zennon Ditchett) and assumed he was the baby daddy and confronted the schoolboy.
But Aadi is not the dad, gang leader Tyler Jefferies (Will Barnet) is and he has a long and tainted history with the Barlow clan.
Tyler spent much of last year terrorising Amy’s cousin Simon Barlow (Alex Bain) after he testified against him in court.
Also, he injured Simon’s dad Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) by firing a paint gun at him.
It is only a matter of time before murderous Tracy learns gang member Tyler is the father of her daughter’s baby.
All too aware of what Tracy is cable of, fans of the ITV soap predicted the mother-of-one would kill Tyler.
On Twitter, one person posted: “Yikes, Steve’s going to have a coronary when he finds out and Tracy will commit murder.”
Another commentator penned: “Killing the daddy will not make Amy any less pregnant Steve and Tracy.”
A third fan quipped: “Watch out baby daddy.”
Actress Elle Mulvaney, who plays the pregnant teen, recently opened up about her role and the importance of the storyline.
Admitting it is “scary” working on a teenage pregnancy story, she said: “Teenage pregnancy is not uncommon.
“It affects a lot of people, so I knew there was a responsibility to do it justice.”
Speaking to What’s On TV, she added: “I’ve taken it as a good opportunity to show what I’m capable of as an actress as Amy grows up.
“It’s also great to have that bit of recognition, to know that people believe in me and I’ve got the support behind me to do it.”
When asked about the challenges she faced filming scenes for the plot, she shared: “There was a scene where Amy’s having a conversation with Steve and Tracy in the living room, then I had to go into the bathroom and cry.
“It’s hard to change emotions so quickly; switching between Amy pretending to be happy to full on crying, so that was a challenge for me.”
Coronation Street continues Wednesday on ITV at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
