Coronation Street’s Tracy Barlow fears she’s created a monster in daughter Amy when she confesses her hatred for Ken Barlow next week.
Tracy is stunned when Amy confides in her that she hates Ken as he refused to lend her the money to buy the florists.
Her comments only compound Tracy’s fears that it was Amy who attacked Ken, something that’s made worse when Amy denies a story Adam Barlow has fed the police about where he was on the night Ken was attacked.
The police interview Adam again, telling him that Amy denied all knowledge of the money he claims he was at the house to collect, Adam’s fuming and points the finger at Tracy.
Suspecting Amy tried to kill Ken, Tracy retrieves her passport and tells Steve she’s taking the school girl on holiday
Here Kate Ford admits things are complicated in the Barlow household…
What does Tracy make of the state the Barlows are in at this point?
Well, Tracy doesn’t suspect Peter because she grew up with him but she isn’t ruling out Adam and Daniel because she doesn’t really know them or what they are capable of. But there are certain things that have been making her suspect Amy.
Does she feel responsible for what she thinks Amy has done?
Tracy is wondering if she has created something in Amy that has caused her to behave in a crazy way because she has messed her up – that’s what she is worried about. Tracy thinks if Amy has done something like that, it’s her fault.
What does Tracy make of Adam pointing the finger at her?
Tracy thinks that if Adam is going round doing that then it is because he is trying to deflect any suspicion from himself. Adam and Tracy both suspect each other.
Have you enjoyed filming this storyline?
I have and it has been really nice to have an extra dynamic, having fresh blood in the Barlows.
What’s the best thing about being a Barlow at the minute?
I like being the only girl in there because it’s fun and we have such a laugh. You really feel part of something…I always did but more so now because the family has expanded now.
Do you think we almost saw a glimmer of a nicer Tracy at one point?
I think Tracy has been nicer for a while. She has still got the tendency to be bitchy and say the funny remarks but I think she’s softened and I like that. But if anyone does anything to harm her she will turn back into the bitch that we know.
Are you enjoying Elle being more involved in storylines?
Yes, she is getting older and we have some good chats. We give each other advice, she’s very wise. She’s great, she is such a good actress.
Do you reckon Amy will turn into Tracy one day?
I think she is getting there already! She is already trying to work out what she can get from people, she’s quite manipulative.
