Coronation Street spoilers – Stephen alters Sarah’s DNA results

coronation street spoilers follow Friday’s (July 28) episode.

coronation street has officially confirmed that Sarah Barlow is expecting Damon Hay’s baby – but her husband Adam still believes otherwise thanks to a sneaky move from Stephen Reid.

The truth about Sarah’s recent DNA test results was revealed on Friday’s episode as she continued to confide in her uncle Stephen about her plight.

Earlier this week, Sarah broke down in tears when she finally read the results of the prenatal paternity test she had arranged to find out if the dad was Damon or Adam.

Sarah’s tears suggested this wasn’t the outcome she was hoping for, so it wasn’t much of a surprise to viewers of Friday’s edition as she and Stephen spoke privately about Damon being the father.

As Adam had asked the clinic to send written confirmation of the results, Sarah worked from home to intercept the letter and destroy it.

Sarah’s latest plan was thwarted when her young son Harry had an accident, forcing her to rush to A&E with him.

The businesswoman believed the game was finally over, but Stephen intervened by getting his hands on the letter and forging an alternate copy that incorrectly named the father as Adam.

Later, once it was confirmed that Harry would be fine, Sarah joined Adam as he opened the results at home.

Expecting a furious reaction, Sarah was taken aback as Adam happily showed her the fake results, which “proved” he was the father.

Everything became clear to Sarah when Stephen told her that he forged the letter to name Adam as the father and shredded the original, which correctly confirmed Damon as the father.

Eventually fed up with all the lies, Sarah called out Stephen for interfering in her life, but he didn’t apologize for his actions.

Stephen asked: “Should I have waited for Adam to find out you lied? Watched your marriage implode?

“Trust me, when it comes to protecting the things you actually care about, you’d be amazed at what you can do.

“Damon is gone. The baby is yours and Adam’s – and now you have the paperwork to prove it.

“Think of your family – Adam, Harry, the baby. Fall apart now and you take them all with you.

Sarah ultimately decided to take Stephen’s advice and start over with Adam, even though she knew she would be living a lie.

When Sarah then spotted a missed call from Damon on her phone, she privately freaked out and wondered if she had really seen the last of him.
