Shock secrets spilled for Corrie's Kylie
When there's trouble on the cobbles, Coronation Street's toxic twosome Kylie and David Platt aren't usually too far away - but they're in for a whole new level of drama when the lid is finally blown on some family secrets.

Corrie fans have been in on it all - knowing that Kylie was blackmailed into helping Lewis con Gail, all because the dashing rogue discovered she's slept with brother-in-law Nick - so it's just been a question of how the tangled tale blows up.
"We all know that good things don't last," Paula Lane, who plays Kylie, smiles.
And it certainly looks like there are fireworks ahead, as first Gail finds out who helped Lewis ...
"Gail finds Kylie's handwriting with her bank details and obviously they were fed to Lewis and he's gone and stolen her £40,000, so it's put Kylie well and truly in the frame," Paula explains.
It's just going to explode, isn't it? It's a ticking time bomb ...

Of course, Gail is pretty keen to see justice served and is fully prepared to call the police on her daughter-in-law - forcing Kylie to confess why she did what she did.
"I slept with someone," she blurts out tearfully, in scenes that show Gail left stunned by the news.
Just wait until she finds out who that someone was!
But in the meantime, Kylie goes off the rails as only Kylie can and ends up in hospital after a drunken fall off a table at the Rovers.
"Kylie just loses it. I'm really, really angry with her for doing that, especially when she's pregnant," Paula says.
"She ends up with a ruptured spleen. It's very dangerous and was actually very harrowing to film."
But for Gail, seeing her youngest son fussing over his wife in hospital and knowing that she's cheated on him is too much to bear and she's ready to wade in and tell him the truth.
Until elder son Nick reveals his part in the scandal.
"You can't tell him - because it was me. The bloke Kylie slept with - it was me!"
