Coronation Street’s Katie McGlynn – Ken is very harsh towards Sinead

Get ready to see a different side to Ken Barlow in Coronation Street as he lays into Sinead Tinker over her shock pregnancy.

The Weatherfield pensioner is stunned to discover his son, Daniel Osbourne, is having a baby with the Underworld worker.

He fears that Daniel is going to sacrifice his future by putting Sinead and the baby first and turn down his chance to go to university.

Katie McGlynn, who plays Sinead, says fans should expect some explosive scenes between Ken, Sinead and Daniel.


She said: “Ken’s really harsh about it. He says to Daniel that Sinead is to him what Deirdre was to Ken.

“I think with Ken he really regrets his own life, he always wanted what Daniel has now got the chance to do, which is go to University at Oxford, be educated and move away from Weatherfield.

“He’s seeing Daniel just about to walk into that life and then a factory girl in Weatherfield has got her claws into him and he doesn’t want Sinead to get in the way of his dream, because that’s what he did with Deidre.

“I think that’s his biggest issue with the pregnancy, he doesn’t take Sinead seriously and just wants Daniel to go off and do all the things he wanted for himself.

“She’s really hurt because she knows she’s not intellectual like Daniel is, she obviously didn’t plan for this to happen, she’s been thrown into the situation like a deer in headlights and now Ken’s not being very nice about it.

“The fact he goes out of his way to make the point that she’s ‘just a factory girl’, it’s mean and she feels very hurt by it. He’s very harsh.”
