Kelly Neelan (Millie Gibson) is left reeling in upcoming Coronation Street scenes, as fellow prisoner Mia claims that her dad Rick (Greg Wood) is dead!
Viewers of the ITV soap will know that Rick met his demise at the hands of Gary Windass (Mikey North) several years ago, hence why Gary has gone out of his way to support Kelly ever since.
Sharon pays Kelly a visit next week, but Mia catches sight of her and puts two and two together, realising that Kelly is Rick’s daughter.
She later explains that she knows all about Rick, leaving Kelly stunned.
‘Almost everyone had a story about Rick Neelan,’ she says. ‘Almost all of them involve people disappearing.’
Describing her own story, the teen reveals that her mum was in debt to loanshark Rick, and was forced to deal drugs in order to pay off the loan.
‘[Mum] got more and more desperate to find ways to pay your dad back,’ she continues. ‘She ended up dealing, then using.
She died of an overdose the day before my 15th birthday.’
Mia implies that Rick was responsible for her mum’s death, but Kelly tells her to take heart in the fact that at least he can’t do any more damage from Spain.
Mia, however, realises that Kelly reckons her dad is still alive, which comes as a bit of a shock to her.
‘On the estate I saw plenty of blokes square up to your dad over the years,’ she adds, ‘Rick Neelan never backed down.
‘If your dad disappeared, someone disappeared him!’
Kelly will no doubt want answers, but will Gary be able to provide them?
Coronation street airs these scenes Monday September 20 at 8:30pm on ITV.
