Ryan (played by Ryan Prescott) has taken a back seat on Coronation Street recently after scenes last year saw him strike up rivalry with super villain, Gary Windass (Mikey North). The youngster said goodbye to his mother Michelle (Kym Marsh) in December, after she too made a nemesis of hotel owner, Ray (Mark Frost), who took over the deeds to her former business, the Bistro. However, she didn’t departure the ITV soap without one last rematch and with a score to settle. Could the entrepreneur have her killed, leaving her son heartbroken as he learns of his mother’s death?

When the sleazy character invited her to a hotel room to discuss their plans a little further, he made untoward advances and the fiery mother didn’t hold back in letting people know what he was like.
