Coronation Street to celebrate Christmas early this year for Sinead Tinker

Coronation Street is going to be celebrating Christmas early this year for Sinead Tinker.

The young mum has been given just a few weeks to live after she was recently told that her cancer had spread.

Metro report that in scenes set to air next week, Kirk Sutherland gathers the family together to plan an early Christmas that Sinead can be a part of.

Sinead is out enjoying her time with Daniel, Beth, Kirk and Craig at a picnic in Victoria Garden.

But after she struggles during charades, it becomes clear to the others that she is too unwell and needs to be taken back home.

She later confesses to Beth that she doesn’t have much energy anymore, and that she’s finding even the smallest tasks have become incredibly difficult.

Kirk decides that he wants to cheer her up, so he talks to Beth, Adam and Tracy about the possibility of setting up plans for a festive celebration.

It comes as Katie recently revealed why she was “really pleased” to be leaving Coronation Street after six years.

The actress recently finished filming her final scenes for the long running soap, as her character Sinead Tinker is set to tragically die in the coming weeks.

The 26-year-old told OK! Magazine how she had gone to Corrie bosses two years ago to tell them she wanted to leave, she hadn’t gotten “a decent story.”

“Then I was told about the cervical cancer storyline,” she said, in reference to how Sinead was tragically diagnosed with cervical cancer soon after finding out she was pregnant.

The actress added that she thought they should “finish with the saddest ending” to Sinead’s storyline, “because life’s not a fairy tale.”
