In tonight’s second episode of Coronation Street (8.30pm — see our TV Guide for full listings) Gemma Winter is beside herself as her baby son Aled vanishes... 

With Aled missing after Freda went AWOL with him, Gemma Winter panics that they need to find him and get him to the hospital before he misses his cochlear implant operation. 

Terrified that her son could miss out on his life-changing operation, Gemma is on a mission with Bernie to track the pair down. 

Meanwhile, an emotional Freda is in the community centre with Aled, showing him a website dedicated to successful deaf people - believing that he shouldn't be having the operation Gemma has booked him in for. 

Eventually, a relieved Gemma tracks Freda and Aled down, but her relief soon turns to horror when Freya sees Gemma at the window, she signs that isn't going to hand Aled back. 

Bernie and Gemma vow to get Aled to his operation on time.

Gemma soon starts to panic, wondering if Freda will let him go to attend his hospital appointment. 

Enlisting the help of the interpreter, who’s arrived to discuss Norris’ funeral plans, Gemma does her best to get through to Freda but she refuses to hand Aled over, worried that he is losing part of himself by having the operation.

Finally, Chesney arrives hoping to help talk Freda around, but will they be able to get Freda to come out before it’s too late to make it to the hospital in time?
