Chesney’s set to receive some bad news

He’s desperate to get to his son Joseph, and this determination will reportedly lead Sinead Tinker to see him in a new light and reunite with him for good.

Katie McGlynn – who plays Sinead – tells The Sun: ‘She is not thinking about herself at that time, she is just in awe of Chesney, how determined he is.

‘She takes a step back and sees Chesney in a completely new light. She sees him as a man, he’s got a fire in his belly and he is so courageous because he is really poorly but he is passionate about something.

Will Sinead and Chesney reunite?

‘It dawns on her: “What have I been doing?” She thinks she should be with him because he loves her, she loves him, if they stay together they are going to be together forever.

‘It may be a safe option but she still has that love for him because she’s been with him a while.’

A source says: ‘As Katy, Georgia was really popular with Corrie fans and had some big storylines. But bosses have clearly decided that she has no future in the soap, and have ruled out a return by killing her off.

‘You might have thought they would show such a well-known character being written out on screen but that wasn’t to be.’
