Coronation Street fans think they have worked out an Adam Barlow baby twist and have predicted that he could be the father of newcomer Lydia’s son on the ITV soap.
Lydia, played by Shameless star Rebecca Ryan, made her cobbles debut during Friday’s episode as the PA of an Underworld client and she has already bonded with Sarah Barlow.
During Tuesday’s episode, Lydia spoke about her son to Sarah, as she was asked about her family life, she said: “Me and my little boy. Actually, I’ve just got him into Bessie Street [school].”
To which Sarah replied: “Oh, my little boy goes there. That’s a small world!”

And as Lydia spotted Adam heading towards wife Sarah, it was soon evident to see that the two have history.
Taking to Twitter, soap watchers predicted that Adam could be the father of Lydia’s son in a shocking cobbles twist.
One person said: “So Lydia’s little boy that’s just got into Bessie Street is Adam’s biological son right? That seems to be the direction that #Corrie is going. #CoronationStreet.”
A different account put: “I think Adam is the father of Lydias son #Corrie.”
While another follower commented: “Yep Sarah’s new bestie is Adam’s baby mama #Corrie.”
In upcoming scenes, things take a dramatic turn when Lydia reveals her own romantic past with the cobbles’ heartthrob.
Later in the week, the two meet up again with Lydia bringing her son, Finn, and when she is introduced to Adam, she reveals that they used to date while at university and quickly makes excuses to leave.
Sarah then confronts Adam, to which he admits he can’t remember his past relationship with Lydia as it was years ago, leaving her unimpressed.

It comes after a Coronation Street spokesperson told Metro of the storyline: “After the dramatic events of 2021 you would think the residents of Britain’s favourite street would be looking for a quieter start to 2022, but although the storm clouds gathering this time are metaphorical, there may be just as much damage.
“Sarah and Adam are hoping to cement their relationship by starting a family, but when Sarah’s new friend Lydia turns out to be someone from Adam’s past, could all Sarah’s dreams turn to nightmares?”
