Coronation Street is lining up a huge storyline for Tracy McDonald (Kate Ford) as she is set to sleep with lawyer Paula Martin (Stirling Gallacher) – but is she bisexual and what will this mean for her marriage to Steve (Simon Gregson)?
Paula recently said goodbye to Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent) as she headed off travelling and she now seems set to get close to Tracy. And one thing will lead to another, ending with a night of passion. Is it a one off or is a full affair on the horizon?
In another plot development, Amy (Elle Mulvaney) will discover that Tracy and Paula have spent the night together – but will she tell Steve the truth about what has happened or can Tracy convince her daughter to keep the secret?
A source told The Sun: ‘Tracy has seen it all on Coronation Street — affairs, murder, kids, divorce, the lot. But the writers have decided to give her another new twist with a night of passion with a woman.
‘Her and Paula will end up spending the night together after one thing leads to another. Amy then tries to bribe Paula into staying silent to mixed results. It’s not known if Steve finds out, but when Amy gets wind of it she does her utmost to try and keep it a secret and bribe Paula into staying quiet. The scenes are expected to play out early next year.’
Coronation Street spokespersons don’t comment on future storylines.
The report, which also claims to contain actual lines from the scripts which have recently been filmed on the show, also reveals that the tryst will soon become public knowledge when Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) overhears Tracy and Paula talking and reveals the truth, enjoying Tracy’s discomfort.
Both characters will insist that they regret the one off – but are they being honest?
