Drowning her sorrows in tequila in the Rovers, Tracy was determined to see 2019 out in style, and that's exactly what she did as she ended up drunkenly going home with lawyer Paula.

There have been rumours that Tracy was going to cheat on Steve circling for months, but tonight's episode of Coronation Street confirmed that Tracy's New Year fling was with Paula as the florist woke up in her bed at the start of the hour-long special.

While Paula clearly found the whole thing amusing, especially when Tracy's daughter Amy popped round to her flat to drop off some work papers, almost catching her mum red handed.

But Tracy failed to see the funny side, knowing that her marriage was at stake. But unluckily for Tracy, it didn't take Amy long to put two and two together and work out that her mum had been doing the dirty with Paula.
