Daniel and Sinead - the new Deirdre and Ken of Coronation Street?
When Ken threw a dinner party to celebrate Daniel's success at getting into Oxford University, it all kicked off.
Katie McGlynn, who plays Sinead, says: "Ken pleads with her to call off her relationship with Daniel so that Daniel will take up his place at Oxford. That’s when Sinead tells Ken she’s pregnant.”
Katie says Ken reacts very harshly indeed. "He has all these big ideas for Daniel – things he wants Daniel to do because he didn’t get the chance to do them.
"Ken says that Sinead is to Daniel what Deirdre was to Ken! He means it like he doesn’t want her to get in the way of Daniel’s big life beyond the Street. Ken implies that’s what happened with him and Deirdre. It’s very mean.”
Mind you, it would be fun to see this play out in years to come. If Sinead and Daniel do stick together she could become thorn in his side that he will always blame for never allowing him to reach his full potential, just as Ken did to Deirdre many times.
And there's always the possibility that Sinead could have a fling with Daniel's arch-nemesis Adam Barlow, just like Deirdre did with Mike!
