Coronation Street airs shock Toyah decision after Imran Habeeb’s death

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has aired a shocking decision from Toyah over Imran Habeeb’s death.

Monday’s episode (June 6) featured a huge development as Toyah Battersby was placed under arrest over accusations she may have intentionally crashed her car last week.

The lead detective has argued that Toyah chose not to apply the brakes because she was angry with Imran at the time of the crash.

Viewers know that Imran had just confided in Toyah about all of his lies over baby Alfie, and was planning to admit what he’d done in a legal meeting. This may have jeopardised custody of Elsie.

Toyah was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving, with immediate repercussions including baby Alfie being removed from her home by child services pending an investigation.

When police showed Toyah CCTV footage, she realised the truth that she hadn’t done anything to prevent the crash — yet insisted she would have never done anything to harm Imran.

Imran’s business partner Adam Barlow has his doubts about Toyah’s explanation, especially after he discovered that Imran had recently set up a legal meeting to change his will.

Later, Leanne received a text from Toyah announcing she was going away to stay with a cousin, leaving her confused about whether Toyah was running away from her problems.

Meanwhile, Imran’s mother Saira Habeeb returned to the cobbles to plan her son’s funeral, but was shocked to find out Abi was baby Alfie’s mother rather than Toyah.

Coronation Street airs at the earlier time of 7.30pm all this week on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
