Coronation Street star Lorna Laidlaw has opened up on some devastating news that’s about to hit the Bailey family.
Aggie, played by the much loved actress, will soon find out that her hubby Ed (Trevor Michael Georges) has been gambling all their money away.
Because of this, the pair lost there house and were forced to move onto the cobbles.
Talking about the upcoming story arc, the 56-year-old explained to Metro.co.uk the heartbreaking effect it will have on the family.
She said: ‘He has got a gambling addiction. He’s gambled before, and promised he’d never do it again.
‘That’s why Michael takes the responsibility on his shoulders and take the blame for Ed.’
She went on: ‘It’s a lovely thing for a son to do really, to take that massive thing, because he does not want his mum and dad to split up, which is so sweet.
‘But Ed loses the house and it all gets revealed. Really slowly.’
Discussing how Ed’s wifey finds out the news, she confessed that a card gets declined and things escalate from there.
‘She sees the signs but thinks it’s alright,’ Lorna admitted: ‘Because he promised and she can’t keep suspecting. When it is all revealed, it’s absolutely heart-breaking.’
The actress went on to talk about her reaction to the script, and how she firth thought Aggie must ditch her love.
‘When I read it, I thought kick him out,’ she laughed: ‘But then you read again and what me and Trevor have tried to do is set up how in love they are and how much they love their kids.’
The star added: ‘Once you’ve got that right, you can see why she would go back to him. We tried really hard to make you see how they work together, how funny they are and the cuddling and kissing.
‘All of that is there before it starts to fall apart. I thought it was really important we show that.’
But it sounds as though the Bailey’s will remain tight lipped over their news, as Lorna described shame as ‘a very big thing’.
‘Nobody knows why they’ve come to the street, they think they just moved in,’ she said: ‘I think this family is very good at keeping things close to their chest to protect the family.’
