Sinead receives bad news

Poor Sinead has been through so much

The drama begins when Sinead goes to Weatherfield General with Daniel, to discover if her radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment for cervical cancer has worked.

Sinead wants Daniel to prepare for the worst and accept the possibility that she might die and that he might have to bring up their new son, Bertie, on his own.

Desperate to hear the outcome, the pair wait nervously together to be called in to see the consultant so they can learn the news.

“Apart from the cancer, Daniel and Sinead have the perfect live - they’ve found someone they love and they have a child together,” says Katie.

“This should be the happiest time of their lives, but they’re both shaking like a leaf, wanting to know the outcome. It’s awful”.
