Steve McDonald (played by Simon Gregson) hates seeing his daughter Emma Brooker (Alexandra Mardell) so upset after being dumped by her boyfriend Curtis Delamere (Sam Retford) on Coronation Street (ITV, 7:30pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

When Steve and Curtis return to the Street, Emma decides to confront them both and find out what's going on.
