Coronation Street to update fans on Justin Rutherford after acid attack

Coronation Street spoilers ahead.

Weatherfield acid attacker Justin Rutherford pleads guilty to assault in next week's Coronation Street.

Having been the intended target of Justin's cruel plan on the morning of her and Daniel Osbourne's wedding day, Daisy Midgeley was saved from a life of disfigurement by the brave Ryan Connor, who threw himself in front of the acid as it was launched through the air.

The latest part of this ongoing Corrie storyline will see Daisy reminding her loved ones that the evil stalker is due in court that day, telling Ken Barlow and Daniel that she'll never be able to relax until he's locked up.

A little later on in The Rovers, Daisy informs landlady Jenny Connor that Justin pleaded guilty, although he'll remain a free man for a bit.

Jenny assures the worked-up barmaid that it'll be a different story after the following week's trial for the acid attack itself and Justin's additional crimes.

However, there's still a lingering sense of danger while he walks among them.

In last month's Corrie, hero Ryan was left appalled by the fact Justin plead his innocence in front of the court.

Addressing this twist last month, actor Ryan Prescott said: "Ryan is furious because he expected Justin to plead guilty, for justice to be served and for the Justin situation to go away, as it should.

"Because Justin has pleaded not guilty to what he did to Ryan but he has pleaded guilty to the other counts involving Daisy, it feels personal to Ryan. He is really, really upset by this and obviously he is really angry and this flares up an aggression in him."

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
