Spoilers: Arthur reveals his tragic secret to Evelyn in Corrie

Evelyn Plummer (Maureen Lipman) has been left overwhelmed in Coronation Street as the truth about her partner’s Arthur Medwin (Paul Copley) secretive behaviour has emerged in emotional scenes.

Evelyn has gradually let her guard down to be with Arthur, letting her usual icy facade thaw to an extent. But such a move comes with the risk of being hurt – and Evelyn cursed herself for getting attached as Arthur came clean.

Viewers had seen him be evasive of going on holiday with Evelyn and we then saw him attend hospital, prompting speculation that he is ill.

But it transpired, as Arthur finally decided to be honest with Evelyn, that he is married – but his wife is in hospital having suffered brain damage from a stroke four years ago.


She will never recover and is unresponsive to him but Arthur explained he had to go and see her when she took a turn for the worse and she responsed that of course he should, she expected nothing less.

Arthur made it clear that he still wanted to get to know Evelyn again but this isn’t something that Evelyn can cope with right now and tearfully she blamed herself for getting too involved and abandoned the relationship.

Is it the end of the road for them?
