A recent acid attack on Daisy Midgeley was stopped by Ryan Connor of Coronation Street. Justin Rutherford had attacked Daisy. Viewers claimed Michelle Connor would return to Weatherfield as he struggled to cope with the attack.
As Justin Rutherford (Andrew Still) launched the assault, Ryan Connor (Ryan Prescott) jumped in front of the acid to protect Daisy Midgeley (Charlotte Jordan). Doctors said Ryan was “lucky” she did so when Daisy quickly decided to throw him into the shower to try and soothe the burns. In order to assist Ryan in his recovery, viewers of Coronation Street have now claimed Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) will return to the ITV soap.
During Wednesday night’s episode, Daisy had been at the hospital throughout the night, with Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) joining her in the morning.
Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) arrived and tried to prompt Daisy to return home but she was adamant she wasn’t leaving until she spoke with Ryan.
As a nurse walked by, she leapt up and asked: “Excuse me? Have you been in with Ryan Connor? Can we see him? Is he ok?”
Daniel tried once again: “Listen, since it looks like we won’t be able to go in for a while, maybe you should go home and get a couple of hours’ sleep. Alya will text, right?”
But Daisy snapped: “I’m not going home alright?”
In his hospital room, Ryan was visited by the psychologist to speak Ryan through the stages of his recovery.
Ryan asked: “Can I have a look at it? What about what’s underneath, is that damaged? You’re going to be able to do something right, you’re going to be able to fix it?”
The nurse hesitantly admitted ideally they didn’t want to do a skin graft on his face, but were hoping to get one done on his arm, leaving Ryan to break down in tears.
In the hospital waiting room, Alya explained to Yasmeen Metcalfe (Shelley King) that Michelle couldn’t come down to see Ryan as she had had an operation herself.
The nurse soon came by and explained that one person was allowed in, with Alya jumping at the chance.
Trying to get him to feel better, she expressed: “Ryan, listen. My head was all over the place after I got stabbed. I remember lying in bed a couple of days later and I was just shaking.
“I suppose it was the shock, my body was in trauma, and I didn’t know that at the time but what I did know is that I didn’t want to be on my own.
“I’m not trying to compare, maybe you need a bit more rest,” but Ryan snapped back: “Yeah I’m a bit crabby today, don’t know what’s wrong with me.
“I don’t know maybe it was having my face burnt off? But yeah what I need is more sleep, I will be right as rain.
“I don’t want to see anyone alright? I don’t want to see anyone just go please, get your stuff and go alright? Thank you. Go please.”
Later in the episode, Daisy snuck out and returned to the hospital to see Ryan, bringing him a smoothie.
Breaking the ice, she joked: “Hey, I snuck out. I’ll bring you something proper next time but at least you’ll get your five a day. If you want me to slip a couple of voddys in there you just say the word.
“Ryan… look at me. You had a visitor today, Crystal and she is devastated obviously and she knows it’s going to be a while before your ready but she can still call you right?”
Daisy noticed there was no music or TV in his room, and said she would bring him her portable speaker but Ryan interrupted.
“They are saying I’m lucky. You kept calm, you got me in the shower and stopped the acid from burning me,” to which Daisy played down: “Just following instructions, anyone would.”
Wanting her to know how much she had helped him, he added: “Cutting my burning clothes off knowing it could burn your own fingers.
“Putting in the shower over my wounds even though your own skin was on fire. No not anyone.”
Viewers of the ITV soap have claimed they think Ryan’s mother Michelle will be returning to the soap to help her son through his recovery.
Rhys Thomson fumed: “What mother can’t get to the hospital when her son has suffered an acid attack? Surely she needs to come back #corrie #coronationstreet.”
@LealeaAM tweeted Kym Marsh directly and stated: “@msm4rsh you needed back in @itvcorrie hun! Your tv son has been in attacked! We need michelle! #coronationstreet
Space theorised: “Michelle could visit Ryan off-screen. A stand in used from behind if needed.
“But unable to visit her son after an acid attack. Nah, not Michelle #corrie #coronationstreet.” (sic)
James Forter commented: “Michelle’s gonna come back to help Ryan and make him stay in Wethersfield, and then him and Alya will get back together. BAM!”
@comedyBITS0 added: “MY MICHELLE CONNOR WOULD NOT LEAVE RYAN HANGING BY HIMSELF. You watch, she will return when he needs to look at his scars and save the day.” (sic)
