Coronation Street's Hayley Cropper gets the shock of her life this summer, when she learns that she has a son.
Knicker stitcher Hayley – played by Julie Hesmondhalgh – had previously told husband Roy (David Neilson) that he was the only person she'd ever had a relationship with and the News
of her 20-year-old son is set to blow their marriage apart at the seams.
Hayley had no idea that she fathered a child before her sex change and it is the death of a relative which catapults the Underworld supervisor into a frantic search for her offspring.
When she eventually tracks him down, he's unaware that his father is now a woman, believing Hayley to be a long-lost relative.
