Coronation Street: Daniel Osbourne questioned by police about black parka

Coronation Street fans were "infuriated" as Bobby Crawford's (played by Jack Carrol) revised statement about the events leading up to Lauren Bolton's (Cait Fitton) disappearance implicated Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) in it. With Roy Cropper (David Nielsen) languishing in jail awaiting trial for the teen's murder Bobby thought changing his statement might help get him released.

Unfortunately, the police weren't just accepting this new information at face value and gave him a further grilling, reminding him that perverting the course of justice is a serious offence which carries a custodial sentence. Feeling under pressure Bobby later told his aunt Carla Barlow (Alison King) he had told them the intruder in Lauren’s flat was wearing a balaclava and a dark coat with a fur-trimmed hood.

This "new information" drew the attention of Cassie Plummer (Claire Sweeney), Evelyn Plummer (Maureen Lipman) and Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher). Unaware that Bobby is lying, Cassie recalled not long after Lauren’s disappearance, she saw a coat in the charity shop fitting the description he gave.

Although the coat was gone there were some other clothes from the same batch and one of the jumpers had Bertie Osbourne's name tag on it. This was enough for the police to haul Daniel back in for questioning as they tried to link his coat to the man Bobby had described.

As DS Swain reeled off the nice things he had done for Lauren, including tutoring her and giving her money to pay for exams, Daniel fumed. He pointed out that they had a thing for arresting nice people after they arrested Roy "the nicest man in the world.

Viewers were equally incensed by this latest twist in the plot and took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to have their say. @linzi_spn opined: "So is the moral of the story here with Daniel and Roy not to be nice to people and do a good deed lol #Corrie."

@joy9kat sarcastically commented: "Another reminder. Don't ever be nice to anyone. You will probably come under suspicion. Great message #Corrie." @ThisIsEmmaHynes said: "I think one of the most infuriating things in all this is people’s good deeds being used against them. #Corrie."
@Beardybill1sked: " So what have we learned from #Corrie? Don't do anything nice for anyone, because the filth will twist it and make you out to be a n****." @JamieSummersTV fumed: "Swain's a copper. She's not used to hearing about people being too nice without a reason. Which is why you should never be too nice #Corrie."
@soniascs46 chimed in : "#corrie. The police are definitely clutching at straws here. Just how long are they going to string this c**p out? Corrie, we don’t even care if she is alive or dead. Personally, I hope she doesn’t come back." Meanwhile, @speakonkaterina ruminated: "The police in #Corrie are mad unprofessional it's so distracting from any crime-related storyline."

Elsewhere in the episode Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) accepted a new job offer and began poaching clients from Adam Barlow (Sam Robinson). Although fuming Adameventually offered him a job with better terms and a pay rise, but despite promising she would think about it she instead decided to go after even more of his accounts.

Sean Tully (Antony Cotton) and his son Dylan Wilson (Liam McCheyne) finally moved into a home of their own but their new flat needed a lot of TLC and Sean gratefully accepted a piece of furniture from Gary Windass (Mikey North).

And Joel Deering (Calum Lill) landed a bombshell on Dee-Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) when he confessed that his ex-wife had been in touch again and wanted him to meet his daughter.

Coronation Street is on ITV Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8pm.
