Coronation Street spoilers follow.
Coronation Street's Ryan Connor will face a big setback next week, when his secret O-Vidz work is revealed to his friends and neighbours.
Ryan has been privately creating intimate content on the OnlyFans-style platform for several weeks, having been offered large sums of money for sending sexual photos and videos to his subscribers.
Unfortunately for Ryan, his new venture hits a major snag next week when a technical error leads to his identity being discovered.
After finishing another livestream on O-Vidz, in which he takes steps to conceal his identity as usual, Ryan is shocked to receive a message telling him that his filter dropped out.
To make matters worse, his subscriber reveals that they recognised him from the newspapers as the guy who was involved in an acid attack earlier this year. Ryan is thrown into a panic and tries to deny it.
However, Suki from the Gazette later approaches Ryan and reveals that she's seen some screengrabs from his sexual videos. She announces that she knows that he was the victim of the acid attack and that she'd like to interview him for a story, leaving Ryan absolutely horrified.
Unaware of what's going on, Carla Barlow insists that Ryan join her for lunch in The Rovers.
Unfortunately for Ryan, Izzy Armstrong has come across the article about Ryan in the Gazette, and she shows it to Carla, Glenda Shuttleworth, Sean Tully, Daniel Osbourne and Daisy Midgeley in the pub.
As Ryan returns from the loo, he's mortified to realise that the group are all talking about him.
Will the loss of his anonymity put Ryan off from making any further content?
Ryan has also been taking illegal steroids in a dangerous bid to boost his body image, putting his health in serious danger.
His secret use of the drugs have already had worrying consequences, with Ryan having suffered from chest pains while exercising. He has also had a violent outburst at Carla, as well as punched a hole in his wardrobe after taking steroids.
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
Coronation Street has been working on Ryan's storyline with guidance from The Katie Piper Foundation and Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI), which both offer help and support to real-life survivors.
