MAX Turner faces harsh consequences for his involvement in Griff Reynolds' far-right gang.
His adoptive father David Platt is willing to do anything, determined to keep him in Coronation Street.
The wayward teen played by Paddy Bever could do nothing when faced with Griff's manipulative tactics.
In a short amount of time, the lad was enticed into Griff's activist group, using his video editing skills to help them spread their racist views throughout Weatherfield.
But things took a turn when Griff and his gang planted a bomb in the cobbles as Maria Connor's Peace Market was underway.
It's since become clear that Max will also have to endure the consequences, although he was groomed by Griff.

Initially arrested for incitement to murder in recent Corrie scenes, Max's charges are escalated to Encouragement of Terrorism due to his propaganda videos.
His father, David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) is at the end of his rope when Max's solicitor breaks the news to him via email.
The barber turns to his mother Gail (Helen Worth) and uncle Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce).
Later on, Max's solicitor, Harriet, calls at No.8 to discuss her plan for the youngster's defence.

What will he resort to?
The pressure soon overwhelms David as he confides in Maria (Samia Longchambon) that his son is refusing to take his calls.
While in the café, Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) assures him that he can't be blamed for Max's own actions – but all the comfort is in vain.
Back alone at No.8, David knocks back whisky to blot out his worries about the teen, clearly deflated.
