Hope gets revenge – in true Hope style (Picture: ITV)

Troubled Hope Stape (Isabella Flanagan) has a long history of behavioural problems on Coronation Street, including setting fire to Underworld, trying to force her cousin Joseph (William Flanagan) to jump down the stairs and causing Alina (Ruxandra Porojnicu) to lose her baby after Hope started another fire.

Desperate mum Fiz (Jennie McAlpine) tried to help her by spending time with her at a behavioural unit, but Hope remains a difficult and troublesome child.

Upcoming episodes see Hope once again putting lives in danger when she seizes the controls of a mechanical digger and goes on a rampage.

The target of her rage is Fiz’s boyfriend Phill Whittaker (Jamie Kenna). Hope has discovered something on Phill’s laptop that leaves her fuming and before long she’s smashing up his car with the digger.

As the mechanical arm of the digger swings wildly to and fro, it’s a seriously dangerous situation for anyone who might get in the way. As Phill rushes to the garden to try to stop Hope doing any further damage, will he be able to stop her before someone gets seriously hurt?

And where are Fiz and Ruby (Macy Alabi)? Could one or both of them become accidental victims of Hope’s fury?
