Coronation Street: The Barlow’s interrogate Peter
Coronation Street’s Ed Bailey (played by Michael Georges) could be set to lose his entire family as he lets his gambling addiction once again rule his life.
Ed has been in denial that his gambling addiction has returned but in upcoming scenes, he is set to get a fright and his addiction could be exposed.
Official spoilers reveal that Ronnie Bailey (Vinta Morgan) reveals that he’s had a call from a property developer mate and he’d like them to oversee the conversion of the Rovers into flats.
Whilst, Ed’s delighted whilst Debbie Webster (Sue Devaney) warns him that he’ll have the whole street against him.
Michael tells Ed that Grandad Sarge (Ram John Holder) called and he’ll be joining them for Christmas, while Dee-Dee Bailey (Shannique Sterling-Brown) invites Joel Derring (Callum Lill) to join the family too.

In the cafe Ed promises Tony that he’ll pay him his wages today, however, when he goes to pay for his coffee and Norris Cole’s (Malcolm Hebden) card is declined, he can feel the panic rising.

Ed panics, is his gambling about to be exposed? Will Michael put two and two together and realise that his dad has fallen into the gambling trap again?
