Linda Hancock offers to take Joseph back to Portugal with her in tonight’s first episode of Coronation Street (7.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings). 

Linda calls at No.5 and offers to pay for Joseph to attend the activity club. As an excited Joseph heads off with Granny Linda, Bernie confides in Gemma that she doesn’t like Linda, and is suspicious of her motives. 

Linda returns home with Joseph to be greeted by Bernie who explains that two of the quads are ill.  When Linda suggests Joseph can stay with her at her swanky hotel, he’s clearly thrilled. 

Linda tentatively suggests to Chesney that it’s clear they’re struggling and it might be best if Joseph came to live with her in Portugal.
