Aggie (played by Lorna Laidlaw) has become quite a recognisable face on Coronation Street since the Bailey clan arrived last Summer. Although they’ve already had a fair few storylines, the secret about son James’ (Nathan Graham) sexuality has caused a rift between the nurse and her husband. As the family come together to celebrate a heroic achievement next week on the ITV soap, it’s not long before turmoil ensures. However, it seems the matriarch hasn’t been telling her family everything, which leads her to make a huge confession.
Despite the mother of the family knowing her son James was gay, it wasn’t until late last year his older brother Michael Bailey (Ryan Russell) made the discovery.
No-one told father Edison Bailey (Trevor Michael Georges), which made the truth coming to light even harder when his son opened up about his sexuality in recent scenes.
With the family slightly torn apart by the news, next week will see them try and move past their troubles by celebrating matriarch Aggie.
However, with the press at the Golden Hearts Awards, it’s not long before a bombshell is dropped on the budding footballer and his mother only adds to the turmoil.

On Christmas Day, Aggie jumped into action when Robert Preston (Tristan Gemmill) was shot and although he later died, she provided great assistance in his last moments.
Having been trained as a medical professional, recent scenes have seen her revisit her past endeavours in light of the tragedy last year.
The matriarch’s heroic efforts led to her Weatherfield Golden Hearts Awards nomination, which she will win in upcoming scenes.
Next week will see the ceremony take place and the mother-of-three takes to the stage to collect her trophy.
