Alina Pop (played by Ruxandra Porojnicu) sleeps as fire licks at her bedroom door in Coronation Street tonight (ITV, 8:30pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

In tonight’s second episode of Coronation Street, a tired Alina persuades Tyrone that he should attend the drinks he has arranged at the hotel with his friends and leave her to have an early night. 

When Hope declares that she wants nothing to do with the new baby and hopes he’s never born, Fiz is shocked and orders her up to bed. 

But Hope sneaks out of the back door and lets herself onto the salon flat to retrieve her dinosaur, believing Alina to be out at the drinks. She lets herself back into number 9 and Fiz is oblivious to where she’s been. 

Back at the flat, Alina sleeps soundly as smoke starts to creep under her bedroom floor.
