Young Oliver’s health is going to take a turn for the worse on Coronation Street tonight when his dad Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) comes home to find his son has had a fit.
Steve will come find his boy on the floor and Summer (Mathilda Freeman) will be horrified, at a loss for what to do.
Will little Oliver pull through, or could Steve find himself living every parent’s worst nightmare?
What’s wrong with Oliver on Corrie?
It’s not yet known exactly what’s wrong with young Oliver, but we do know that this is the beginning of a longer storyline.
Steve shares Oliver with Leanne Tilsley (Jane Danson) and she and Steve will both face an agonising wait to find out if their child will be ok, and for the subsequent tests to find out what has caused the fit.
On top of that, Leanne will be very unhappy indeed to find that her son had been left in the care of a young teenager while Steve was out trying to confort his daughter Emma Brooker (Alexandra Mardell).
Steve will be tormented by guilt, but their ordeal isn’t set to let up any time soon, as Oliver will again be seen taking a frightening turn.
On the subject of the storyline, show boss Iain MacLeod previously told Metro.co.uk: ‘There is a huge new story which I can’t say too much more about at this stage if you’ll forgive me for being cryptic but having re-established Steve and Tracy’s relationship on its strongest footing, something will happen that probably has the most far-reaching impact of any story we’ve done since I’ve been on the show, and I include both stints, where something horrifically difficult and challenging will happen that draws in 3-4 different clans on the Street and forces them to deal with the hardest thing anyone would ever had to deal with.
‘That will begin on screen, you might not know what it is at first, around March/April, and that will play out over the spring and into the summer.’
Coronation Street continues tonight at 7:30pm on ITV.
