AUDREY Roberts remains unaware of the chaos her son Stephen Reid is causing in the cobbles.
But the Coronation Street hairdresser gets embroiled in a horrific murder plot without knowing.
The Weatherfield stalwart portrayed by Sue Nicholls welcomed her son back into her life in 2022.
However, she's oblivious to the fact his finances are in tatters and he's going above and beyond to get his hands on some cash.
As a result, the failing businessman played by Canadian actor Todd Boyce has resorted to murder in an attempt to keep his scheming under wraps.
Yet after getting rid of Leo Thompkins, Stephen is hellbent on staying out of trouble.

Jenny Connor isn't far from the scene and is impressed at Stephen's kindness.
Unfortunately, it doesn't take Stephen long to go off the rails and kill again.
