Coronation Street spoilers: Rapist Josh Tucker takes evil revenge on Billy Mayhew after blindness twist?
He may think that he has escaped justice from the courts after being released without charge by police for his rape of David Platt, but sinister Josh Tucker is facing punishment of a different kind in Coronation Street, having been told that a recent attack has blinded him.
Billy Mayhew warned a man that was hanging around with Josh that he was a rapist and the man then beat Josh to within an inch of his life. His injuries have resulted in him losing sight and as he fears that it could be permanent, angry Josh blames Billy for destroying his life.
Billy, consumed by guilt over what his actions have led to, visits Josh who lets rip at him for the fact that his life will never be normal again after the attack. As Billy wonders what he can do in this complex situation, will he reveal what has happened to David and Shona?
And, as he remains torn between his loyalty to his friends and the fact that he is to blame for a person being blinded, can Billy sort his head out?
Or is there further trouble ahead? Might Josh decide that he wants to carry out his own revenge as he blames David and Billy for how badly his life is turning out, rather than himself and his own deplorable actions?
One to watch: Friday 17th August at 8:30pm on ITV.
