Why does Tim start searching for Elaine in Corrie?

Official spoilers have revealed that next week’s episodes of Coronation Street will see Tim finally turn against his dad after Sally steals his laptop. 

Tim, Sally and Faye then try and recover Geoff’s deleted CCTV footage from his hidden camera in the hopes that they’ll be able to reveal his abuse of Yasmeen. 

Later, the police arrive and tell Geoff that new evidence has appeared – and that they have some questions for him. 

Having finally realised that Sally was right about Geoff all along, Tim worries for Elaine’s wellbeing and decides to track her down. 

Does Tim find Elaine in Corrie?

No, Tim doesn’t manage to track Elaine down next week.

He returns from bolton and tells Sally, Alya and Imran that there was no sign of Elaine. 

He also says that, judging by the huge pile of post on her mat, she hasn’t been there for a while. 

Will he be able to track her down?

Fans of the ITV soap were left worried for Elaine’s safety after a furious showdown between the exes ended with Geoff destroying her phone.

Elaine was nowhere to be seen as Geoff destroyed her SIM card and tossed it down a nearby alley drain.

Has Geoff murdered her after all?

Why didn’t Tim believe that Elaine was his mum in Corrie?

Elaine left her abusive marriage to Geoff in 1973 after his abuse left her fearing for her life. 

Geoff and Elaine officially divorced in 1974 but Geoff told everyone that she had died of breast cancer. 

Geoff then brainwashed his son into thinking that his next wife Tess was his birth mother.

Speaking to Inside Soap, Tim actor Joe Duttine explained why Tim initially backed Geoff.

The actor said: "Remember that Tim isn't aware of what the rest of the nation knows about Geoff.

"Tim only reacts to the interactions he has with his dad, and he doesn't want to believe that he could do anything wrong. Some families have to close ranks and protect their own, which is what Tim is doing. But I think Tim is starting to feel as if something isn't quite right."

The actor added: "Tim will see cracks in the picture he has of Geoff."
