Corrie’s Emma Brooker breaks down as she’s arrested over Scott twist

Coronation Street’s Emma Brooker broke down during Wednesday’s episode, as she was arrested for handling stolen goods.

Emma accepted stolen cash from criminal Scott in a recent episode, after he robbed The Bistro.

She came across watches and mobile phones in a bag, and Scott offered her £5,000 in exchange for her silence.

Emma was desperate for the cash, as her little brother Oliver continued his fight for life in hospital.

She gave the money to her dad Steve McDonald to pay legal fees as they prepared to challenge the hospital, about getting treatment out of the country.

Scott had told them what he had done, but Emma denied it all only to confess to her dad.

A tearful Emma then realised, after consulting lawyer Imran, that she needed to go to the police and reveal all.
