Coronation Street bosses are lining up a big new plotline for Billy Mayhew and Todd Grimshaw which could see them become parents.
Todd initially has his nose put out of joint when Billy’s former boyfriend, Drew, shows up on the cobbles and he thinks he’s trying to get back with the vicar.
But it soon transpires that Drew has more tragic reasons to be reunited with Billy – he’s dying of cancer and has only months to live.
It turns out that Drew is determined for Billy to adopt his daughter so that he knows she’s well cared for when he’s gone.
According to the Daily Star, a tearful Drew says: “I didn’t come to wallow. Summer is going to need a guardian.
“She’s a typical 12-year-old, gobby, has Little Mix on a constant loop – but she’s generous and open- minded and full of hugs. You adopting her would make my life complete. If I can just get her settled then I think I can go in peace.”
