Today’s extra episode will see Sinead waking up the morning after her fight with husband Daniel Osbourne over his kiss with Bethany Platt.

But when Sinead realises he isn’t there, she is upset and worries about where he might be. And she’s right to worry, because Daniel is in self destruct mode, having spent the night passed out drunk by the side of the canal.

As Sinead pours her heart out to her son, she tells him all the things he is too little to understand now, and makes sure he will know just how loved he is.

But soon Tracy arrives to tell Sinead that Daniel loves her dearly and that Bertie needs his dad… and Tracy’s words resonate with Sinead and she asks to see her husband.

As Daniel gets home he is an emotional wreck and he begs for her forgiveness as Sinead talks candidly about her death and tells Daniel that she needs to know she can trust him to always do the right thing for their son.
