CHRISTMAS brings bad news to the Baileys in an upcoming trip to Weatherfield as their presents get stolen by an unknown attacker.
Coming up in Coronation Street, however, Ed Bailey realises it's time for him to be honest with his loved ones. How will they react?
The builder played by Trevor Michael Georges plunged right back into his gambling addiction earlier this year with his brother Ronnie and his daughter's boyfriend Joel being fully aware of the situation.
Ed has struggled financially in recent months and has had to turn to a loan shark keep things afloat.
Unfortunately, as he was unable to pay him off, Christmas at the Bailey household turned into a nightmare when the loan shark took away all the presents under the tree, leaving Ed to explain to his family what had happened.
The fan favourite left out some major details from his story but in scenes due on ITV, Ed reaches the conclusion he has to tell his loved ones what is really going on.

Coming up at No.3, Ed watches guiltily as the family unwrap the few meagre presents they managed to salvage and he feels even worse when he unwraps the watch inscribed with "For the World’s Best Dad. Our Hero."
Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) calls round and invites them all to join her family at Speed Daal for Christmas lunch.
Later on, Craig Tinker (Colson Smith) calls at No.3 and admits that they’ve been unable to trace the burglar, who Ed knows well, unbeknownst to anybody.
Joel Deering (Calum Lill) calls at the builder’s yard and tells Ed that he’s got a wealthy client who’s looking for a decent and honest builder and he’ll put in a good word for him.

In other scenes, Sean Tully (Antony Cotton) and Izzy Armstrong (Cherylee Houston) present Michael Bailey (Ryan Russell) with a Wendy house for his daughter Glory.
The pair explain how they all clubbed together and bought it from a pawn shop.
Michael is surprised to realise it’s the exact same Wendy house that was stolen ahead of Christmas and he decides to let Craig know all about it.
The copper promises to look into it and secrets begin to unravel faster than Ed would perhaps like.
