Coronation Street fans have been told that a character may be kidnapped on the soap.

Warning: spoiler alert!

In an interview on the show's website, actor Alan Halsall, who plays Tyrone, discussed his character's plan to take baby daughter Ruby and his lover Fiz's (Jennie McAlpine) reaction.

He said: "Fiz is appalled. She wouldn't see this coming from Tyrone and I don't think he would see it in himself, but it is just sheer desperation.

"This is not about Kirsty (Natalie Gumede) and Tyrone; it is purely about Ruby. He is in such a desperate state, the only way he can see out is this. Every other avenue is a dead end and the only solution he can see is to take Ruby and run."

When asked if Tyrone realises the police will pursue him, Halsall replied: "Obviously kidnapping your own child is the one thing that would ensure you never saw them again. But he is not thinking ahead; he is living for right now and he just wants Ruby in his arms right now. It is the only solution he can see."

He added: "This isn't just a selfish act of him wanting Ruby; he is actually scared for Ruby. The worry is that he has no idea what is going on.

"Kirsty has never touched Ruby but he has always been there to take the blows and deal with Kirsty's anger, so now the not knowing is what is driving him mad."
