One Coronation Street couple is set to be hit by a baby bombshell next week, as Alina discovers she is pregnant with Tyrone's child.

Alina drops the news on a gobsmacked Tyrone, just as he's struggling to deal with the death of his abusive ex Kirsty Soames in the ITV soap.

While Tyrone hasn't seen Kirsty in years, she is the birth mum of his daughter Ruby and he is forced to tell Ruby about her mum's death.

Kirsty's funeral is also next week, but Alina is unable to go after experiencing bad morning sickness - reports Mirror Online.

At the start of the week, Alina panics she could be expecting a child but initially doesn't tell anyone including Tyrone.

But after a row over his past with Kirsty, which she had no idea about, she tearfully blurts out she's having his baby.

Tyrone is floored by the unexpected news, with them only recently getting together after his split from partner Fiz.

Reeling, he heads out leaving Alina alone and in tears as he continues planning Kirsty's funeral with Fiz.

But it's his gran Evelyn who picks up on Alina's nausea and quickly works out what's going on.

She's horrified by the news given recent events, but will Tyrone share his own true feelings?

Fiz realises Tyrone is going to the funeral alone, and decides to put their differences aside to go with him.
