Coronation Street’s Tracy Barlow is going to sleep with lawyer Paula Martin, according to reports.
Paula, who recently bid farewell to her girlfriend Sophie, and Tracy are said to get closer and will “end up spending the night together after one thing leads to another.”
But then Amy, Tracy and Steve McDonald’s daughter, finds out about what happens – and tries to bribe Paula into staying silent.
An insider told The Sun:
“Tracy has seen it all on Coronation Street — affairs, murder, kids, divorce, the lot. But the writers have decided to give her another new twist with a night of passion with a woman.
“Her and Paula will end up spending the night together after one thing leads to another. Amy then tries to bribe Paula into staying silent to mixed results.”
It isn’t currently known if Steve finds out about what happened, but it seems that it does eventually become some degree of public knowledge.
According to the publication, Leanne Battersby finds out as she hears Paula and Tracy having a row.
The source continued:
“It’s not known if Steve finds out, but when Amy gets wind of it she does her utmost to try and keep it a secret and bribe Paula into staying quiet.
“The scenes are expected to play out early next year.”
A spokesperson for the soap declined to comment.
