Horror in Coronation Street as this Weatherfield LEGEND goes MISSING!

There's drama for the Platt family in next week's Coronation Street when Gail mysteriously vanishes...

Next week's Coronation Street sees trouble for the Platt family when Gail goes missing right before both her sons are due in court for sentencing.

Ever since David confessed to gran Audrey about what really happened to her missing money, he and older brother Nick have been at war.

With both siblings desperately trying to keep themselves out of jail, they have taken to playing dirty to make sure they're not going to be spending the foreseeable at Her Majesty's pleasure.

But while Gail has been desperately trying to get her boys to talk, it seems her pleas have fallen on deaf ears and next week sees the troubled mum getting fed up with trying to patch up her broken family.

As Nick and Audrey both moan at her, it seems Gail can't do anything right. But they're all left feeling guilty when later on that day, Sarah points out that Gail is nowhere to be found.

By Wednesday next week Gail is still missing and the family really start to worry. But where could Gail have vanished to?

Convinced that her mum wouldn't just leave of her own accord when her sons are due in court, a worried Sarah calls the police and reports Gail missing.

But even with Gail's disappearing act on their minds, the family are still blaming one another, and Audrey is quick to point the finger at Nick and David, convinced it is their fighting that has driven their mother away.

However, while Gail is still missing, David and Nick have bigger things to worry about as their day in court arrives.

David is thrilled when Nick seems to be softening in the midst of Gail's disappearance and tells him that he will confess full responsibility for the missing money in court.

David is pleased that he won't be going to jail after all, but the smile is soon wiped off his face when Nick has a change of heart and not only tells the judge that he blames his brain injury for his actions, but also frames David for the whole thing!

As the judge makes his decision, things don't look good for David... but where is Gail and will she return to hear the judges decision about her sons' futures?

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
