Coronation Street viewers are worried about the fate of homeless hero Stu after seeing a worrying sign.
During a heart-to-heart with homeless Kelly Neelan, he revealed his past, admitting to having worked as a chef in a restaurant before the pandemic wiped out the industry.
And, while offering Kelly a cup of coffee and an out-of-date cookie to cheer her up, he was ready to give her some sound advice on living her best life and not letting the past dictate her future. Stu, on the other hand, collapsed into a coughing fit several times during the conversation, causing fans to be concerned about his health. On Twitter, one user wrote: “Stu’s got the ‘rona, I fear!”
“Has Stu got tuberculosis?”
echoed another. ”
