Coronation Street: Sarah cries as she sits at Adam's bedside
Over the past few months, Evelyn Plummer (played by Maureen Lipman) has been enjoying a romance with Arthur Medwin (Paul Copley), but she’s always had this niggle of doubt that he was hiding something. Following a setback after their holiday to the Lakes a couple of months ago, Evelyn was left devastated and confronted the gentleman, suggesting it might be best if they called time on their relationship. However, after a Weatherfield resident said they saw Arthur in hospital, she soon learned the real reason why he was so guarded. As Arthur tries to make amends, Evelyn wants nothing to do with him. Could this have something to do with Coronation Street stalwart Roy Cropper (David Neilson)?
The cobbles battle-axe found herself letting her guard down and falling for Arthur this year.
But when she found out he was still married, with his wife in hospital having suffered brain damage from a stroke four years ago, she decided to stop seeing Arthur.
While he tried to explain how his wife is unresponsive and will never recover, Evelyn refused to listen, insisting that the wedding vows “in sickness and in health” and “til death do us part” should be followed.
Having been absent from Weatherfield for a while, Arthur will return after Christmas to give Evelyn a belated present.

However, Evelyn will give him a short shift and Arthur walks out of Roy’s Rolls feeling deflated.
Thinking about the exchange she just had, Evelyn realises Arthur left his present on the table.
Those watching at home will see her pick it up and head out. Is she going to chase after Arthur and return the item?
There is also the question of what the present is – could Arthur return to tell Evelyn his wife has died and he now wants to spend the rest of his life with her?
Actress Maureen, who plays Evelyn, previously spoke about her storyline and whether her character will ever forgive Arthur.
“When he reveals why he’s been deceiving her, she chooses to send him packing – to save herself from feeling pain, now or in the future.
“She could forgive him – his dilemma is so credible and understandable – but she closes up the fortress gates, as she always has,” Maureen told Digital Spy.

Many Coronation Street fans have been discussing Evelyn and Arthur’s relationship online and some think she would be better suited to another resident.
“I think her and Roy could be a brilliant couple,” one tweeted. Another asked: “Roy and Evelyn the next couple forming?”
“@itvcorrie I want to see Evelyn and Roy,” a fan commented. A fourth mentioned: “Evelyn just get with Roy such a well suited couple #Corrie.”
Roy has always given Evelyn straightforward and honest advice and will no doubt be sad to bear witness to her latest drama with Arthur.
Perhaps he will be able to offer some words of wisdom to help Evelyn in her predicament?
Or, could in a surprise twist this Christmas, he declare he loves Evelyn himself and is pleased Arthur is now out of the picture?
Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
