Coronation Street‘s James Bailey will be disappointed and upset by Ed’s reaction after telling his truth about his sexuality.
However, Ed reacts badly. He is hurt that Michael and Aggie knew about James’ sexuality before he did, and is also convinced that Danny has ‘corrupted’ him.
Later, Aggie suggests that Ed’s reaction was because he struggled with processing all of the information at the same time, but James is unconvinced.
Meanwhile, Ed apologises to Danny at the Bistro for the reaction. Ed confides in Danny and says that he’s worried about the prejudice Danny will face, particularly in his footballing career.
James receives a text message from Danny suggesting a meet-up.
Soon afterwards, Aggie is pleased as James is civil when Ed arrives home – hinting that the Bailey family may have turned a corner.
Coronation Street airs these scenes on Wednesday, February 19 and Friday, February 21 on ITV.
