Coronation Street favourite Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) drops a huge baby bombshell in the new year.
At No.13, Abi is wondering what on earth she’s going to do if she is pregnant.
When Toyah Battersby (Georgia Taylor) questions where he disappeared to the night before, Imran Habeeb (Charlie de Melo) lies that he was watching the fireworks.
Abi meets up with Imran in Victoria Garden and tells him she plans to do a pregnancy test and if its positive, Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) deserves the truth.
Neither of them spots Kevin approaching. Abi lies convincingly to Kevin and makes out that she and Imran were rowing over Kelly Neelan (Millie Gibson).
Abi calls at the builder’s yard flat. As Toyah buzzes her up, Imran’s heart is in his mouth.
Elsewhere in Weatherfield, Tim (Joe Duttine) and Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dynevor) kick off the new year with a smoothie as part of their new healthy regime.
Tim tells Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) that he’s booked both he and Sally in for health checks with Dr Gaddas.
Having successfully passed their health checks, Sally reckons they deserve a treat, but Tim’s reluctant and it’s clear he’s hiding something.
Tim later takes a call confirming an appointment, Sally’s none the wiser.
Sally’s disappointed when Tim refuses to join her for a run, making out he has to work.
Tim gets a text confirming his cardiology appointment at 3.00pm.
When Sally finds out from Peter that Tim lied about having to work, she’s troubled.
A nervous Tim attends his appointment with the cardiology consultant who explains that he’ll need an angiogram.
He rushes out dropping his wallet, when Aggie Bailey returns it to the house he asks her not to tell Sally about the appointment as he doesn't want to worry her.
Sally meanwhile thinks he is embarrassed to be seen out with her.
Sally insists Tim goes on a run with her but worried about his heart he is going too slow and lets Sally go on ahead.
Aggie secretly goes with him for his appointment after he refuses again to tell Sally but Tim is shocked when the consultant tells him he needs a triple heart bypass.
The consultant warns Tim that without an operation, his next heart attack could be fatal.
Tim struggles to cope with the diagnosis and remains in denial despite Aggie imploring him to listen to what the consultant has said.
Sally is hurt when he refuses her suggestion of a sexy night in.
Will Tim tell his wife about his health fears?
Also, Faye drives a still tipsy Emma back from their New Year’s Eve party and they knock over Ted, an old man carrying his shopping.

The girls are relieved when he opens his eyes and states he is fine and invites them into his flat for a brew.
