ED Bailey faces losing everything after his gambling addiction returns in Coronation Street.
The character – played by Trevor Michael Georges – first revealed a gambling problem as his family initially settled down on the Cobbles in 2019.
And in recent weeks, it seems his demons have come back to haunt him.
In upcoming episodes of Coronation Street, Ed struggles when Neil, their site manager, suggests they bet on when the digger will turn up.
In the Rovers, the lads gather to watch the match. When Neil suggests they have a flutter, Ed’s sorely tempted.
Later, Ed apologises to Neil for snapping at him and explains he used to be a gambling addict.

Meanwhile Ed notices the digger driver looks troubled and hurries over.
Ronnie arrives at the building site to see Ed talking to a uniformed Craig. Ronnie peers into the hole where the digger has unearthed a dead body.
Unsurprisingly, Dee-Dee later breaks the news that the investor has pulled out of the building project.
