Coronation Street confirms upsetting Christmas story for Stu Carpenter

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street's Stu Carpenter, Yasmeen Metcalfe and Eliza Woodrow have been revealed as three more characters who'll be taking centre stage over the Christmas period.

Stu is currently facing a difficult time, as he's struggling with his granddaughter Eliza's decision to go and live with her father Dom Everett.

Dom previously demanded cash in return for dropping his interest in bringing up Eliza, much to Stu's disgust.

More recently, Stu has hired a private investigator to dig up dirt on Dom, hoping that this will help to get Eliza back.

Speaking in a recent press call, Coronation Street's producer Iain MacLeod told Digital Spy and other media: "This is another one of those stories that we were hoping to play as an incredibly relatable tale – about parental versus grand parental influence over a child.

"There is loads more to come for them. It's incredibly poignant. Stu makes some incredibly bad decisions in the course of the story, fully believing that he's right. But he makes a total hash of things.

"I think it's fair to say, in the course of that, Stu will seriously endanger his relationship with Yasmeen. After Geoff and Sharif, Yasmeen has profound trust issues when it comes to men – and Stu's behaviour around this story will give her, at the very least, serious pause for thought."

He continued: "It's got fantastically good actors in the middle of it.

"Christmas will be upsetting for that family, in a way that will trigger something a bit bigger as we head into the early New Year and spring."

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
