CORONATION Street fans are convinced there’s a shocking sister twist after Tyrone Dobbs discovers his real-life mother’s identity.
The character – played by Alan Halsall in the ITV soap – has finally come face to face with his birth mother, Cassie, who he believed was dead.
Cassie, played by Claire Sweeney, was never involved in Tyrone’s life but it seems that will soon change as she finally speaks to him when they were reunited on the cobbles.
Cassie is the daughter of Evelyn (Maureen Lipman) who told Tyrone that his drug addict mother was dead so he wouldn’t try to find or contact her.
But when the cat is out of the bag, there are more questions than answers, and Tyrone is at a loss.
Now, fans have even theorized that Tyrone may have a secret sibling — who could already be in Weatherfield.
This came after his daughter, Ruby Dobbs, voiced the idea out loud, which sent fans’ tempers into high gear.
In the last episode, Ruby opened up about the “bombing” and it seems like Tyrone’s “sister” could be a lot closer to home.
It was predicted that the cannibal Courtney Vance, played by Stephanie Davis, could be his sister.
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: “I have a feeling that Courtney, who Aadi messed with, will end up being Tyrone’s sister.”
A second agreed, writing, “I hope that line ‘you could have brothers or sisters’ is a little hint that Courtney is Tyrone’s sister…”
The guesses make perfect sense.
Courtney has only recently hit the road and not much is known about her life.
While fans have seen her cheating on her enterprising husband Darren with the much younger Aadi, she brought little else to the soap.
Courtney is also a scouser, and Stephanie chose to use her own voice to play the character.
Cassie also suffers from Tyrone’s liver diseasebe deeply rooted in the city, so this could actually turn out to be true?
Viewers are confident that Ruby has shed light on a huge potential story arc, commenting, “Ruby 2.0 drops a potential bombshell there. Tyrone could (and probably will) have brothers and sisters!”
Only time will tell if there’s more to Tyrone, Cassie and Courtney than meets the eye.
