Coronation Street will be dropping to just three weekly episodes instead of six because of the coronavirus, but that doesn't mean the drama will be cut back too.
Coronation Street cast members Tracy and Steve McDonald (Kate Ford and Simon Gregson) announce that they're going to be taking a break from Weatherfield for a while to go and visit Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) in Scotland.
But with Steve's daughter Emma Brooker (Alexandra Mardell) having a tough time in her relationship, their exit could cause serious upset.
Emma has already been having a difficult few weeks with boyfriend Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni) after his ex Alina Pop (Ruxandra Porojnicu) randomly returned to the street.
She's convinced that he still has feelings for Alina, which wasn't helped when he invited her to live in their spare room when she re-appeared.
Emma suggested that she and Seb should spend some time apart, in order to try and play it cool to keep him interested and to make him miss her – absence makes the heart grow fonder, after all.
Next week, after spending the night at a friend's house, Seb comes back to the flat and makes it clear to Emma that she has no interest in Alina – Emma is the only girl for him.
Later, Seb approaches Alina in the cafe and tells her it might be for the best if she moves out, but it sounds like things will go wrong.
That's because, in Wednesday's episode, Seb refuses to move out of the flat so Emma tells him she'll go instead.

Her dad Steve says that she can stay with him and Tracy, however that plan doesn't last long.
But in Friday's episode, Steve and Tracy announce that they're going to Scotland for a few days to see Daniel.
Emma assures them that she'll be fine on her own – but could things get too much for her?
