Coronation Street sets up character return as Fiz and Phill bicker
The wedding build-up begins.

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street‘s Fiz Stape puts her foot down next week as Phill Whittaker warns that his mum may be making a reappearance.

Late last year, Phill’s mother Mimi visited the cobbles and immediately rubbed Fiz up the wrong way with her pompous behaviour.

As relations between Fiz and Mimi soured, things came to a head when Tyrone Dobbs stepped in to defend his ex-partner.

In next week’s episodes, Phill gently breaks the news to Fiz that Mimi now plans to be at their wedding.

Mimi had originally turned the invitation down, which came as a relief to Fiz after their previous spats.

Phill also reveals that Mimi has asked to be part of the wedding preparations.

This is a step too far for Fiz, who says that Mimi can attend the ceremony but that’s where her involvement ends.

Will Phill have to back down?

Coronation Street’s producer Iain MacLeod has previously named the Fiz, Tyrone and Phill love triangle as one to watch out for this year.

Speaking at the start of this year, MacLeod hinted that he’d already decided who Fiz should end up with in the long-run.

He told Insertions.us and other media: “Fiz will end up in a huge dilemma about where her future lies.

“I think I know what Fiz’s happy ending looks like, but it’s going to be a long, brilliant and complicated story for both of them. Once you’ve been hurt and humiliated like Fiz has, even if you find yourself wanting your ex back, is it that straightforward? Will pride, and your family, let you?

“I think it’s going to be a cracking year for that household. As if it wasn’t brilliant enough, you’ve also got Evelyn in the corner offering her acidic asides.”

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
