Airs at 7:30pm on Friday 4 March 2022 on ITV.

Lydia sets Adam Barlow up and then calls the police in tonight’s hour-long episode of Coronation Street (7.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

Adam Barlow assures Sarah that Lydia’s telling a pack of lies. At the flat, Sarah demands dates and times from Lydia of when she supposedly had sex with Adam. When Sarah suggests it’s all lies, Lydia shows her threatening texts, making out they’re from Adam. Sarah points out they’re from a different number but when Lydia suggests she calls the number, Sarah’s shocked to find a phone ringing in Adam’s drawer.

Adam arrives to find Sarah dumping his stuff outside so he later desperately calls at Lydia’s house asking to talk. Spotting a couple of passers-by, Lydia plays the victim and shouts at Adam to leave her alone, making out she’s scared.

Lydia eventually opens the door but as Adam steps inside, he’s horrified to see she’s trashed her house in another elaborate bid to set him up. As he pulls out his phone to call the police, Lydia tells him it’s too late as they’re already here. Is Adam in more trouble?
