Back in June, Coronation Street shocked viewers with a devastating car crash that ended up taking the life of Imran Habeeb (Charlie de Melo).
That car crash story, which heavily involved Georgia Taylor’s Toyah, took up an entire week as the dramatic event unfolded. Toyah was driving the car in the crash, while a flashback later revealed that Toyah was in an incredibly emotional state after Imran admitted that he set up Abi (Sally Carman) in order to ruin her custody chances.
It was hinted that Toyah might have purposefully crashed the car to get revenge on Imran for this, but it was never confirmed and viewers have been left wondering the truth of the situation ever since.
Now, the trial over the crash and Toyah’s involvement is coming up, so expect some answers soon. In the meantime, Toyah actress Georgia Taylor has shared her thoughts on her character’s situation. Namely, Toyah is feeling pretty, pretty alone.
“She is scared, she’s lonely, she is still grieving losing the man she loved and that chance of being a mum and being a family. I can’t even imagine on top of that having to face a murder trial, her emotions are all over the place,” Taylor said.
Taylor didn’t want to give away too many details in regards to the potential outcome of the trial and wanted to keep viewers guessing as to whether Toyah is guilty or not. Still, Taylor gave us a peek into the mindset of her character.
“I think it’s a very grey area and her guilt is huge, whether she is guilty of murder or not, she was at the wheel of that car. So she feels responsible for his death and the fact that Alfie is going to spend the rest of his life growing up without his dad,” Taylor said.
She concluded: “It’s heartbreaking, it’s a huge, huge burden for her to carry.”
This story is one of many dramatic sagas unfolding in Coronation Street in August, with Stu’s secret on the verge of being revealed and Kelly growing closer to Aadi.
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
