Liz McDonald’s ex is up to his old tricks yet again – not good
Jim McDonald’s hateful plan has been exposed after he and his ‘daughter’ Katie were seen snogging in their car.
The former criminal returned to the cobbles during his son Steve’s stag do, and later went to talk to Liz about his return.
He wanted to reconnect with his family and, in an emotional moment, he explained to Liz that their long lost daughter, Katie, was in fact alive and had got in touch with him.
Liz was devastated to think she had missed out her daughter’s life, and talked to Eileen about whether or not to go and meet her and face the difficult journey or reconnecting.
Eileen convinced her it was worth them having a conversation at least, and in the end Liz was so emotional she grabbed her daughter and hugged her, while trying to process everything that had gone on between them.
Jim took ‘Hannah,’ who he said had her name changed by adoptive parents, away and offered to give her a lift home, while Liz and Eileen reeled from the shocking experience.
It was only then when the viewers realised Jim had been planning a new con to ruin his family, and potentially get money off the hospital where ‘Katie’ was born for supposedly switching them up.
She then planted a big smacker on his lips, and fans concerns were confirmed in a shocking moment.
Many took to Twitter to share their shock and disappointment at the moment.
One said: “Whats goin in with Jim McDonald and this Katie bird is he up too his old tricks again #CoronationStreet”
Another said: “Crikey O’Blimey!!!! Jim, you rat! #Corrie #CoronationStreet”
A third added: “Don’t know whats worse jim lying about a daughter or having to watch him snogging the girl lol”
But many fans reckoned they saw this coming, sharing their theories of what Jim was up to long before the big reveal.
One said: “if I was Liz I’d be wanting DNA proof that shes her daughter.. Eileen doesn’t believe it but her judgment when it comes to men is appalling”
Another said: “I have a feeling this Jim, Liz and Katie is a scam to get money off the hospital for the mix up… Just doesn’t seem right”
The hosts of ITV’s This Morning, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, have already spoken out about how they do not believe the baby switching storyline is really possible.
It turns out they were very much correct.
Later, she wiped off a fake birthmark from her ears and talked about how excited they are to be “quids in” when they try to take Liz’s pub off her.
They then suggest getting Steve’s taxi company from him in their aim to “teach your Elizabeth a lesson she’ll never forget.”
