The EMMA broker is struggling to cope after Curtis lost control of Coronation Street next week.
A medical student – played by actor Sam Ratford in ITV Soap – has a life-threatening condition that has seen him die twice.
Next week’s episodes of Kerry will see Emma believing in Steve that Curtis has failed to come forward.
As Emma fears she may break down again, viewers will see Curtis sitting alone in a rover, drowning in her grief.
Emma eventually tracks Curtis and Steve talks to her about messing around with her daughter.
Curtis apologized and explained that he only wanted the hospital to respond appropriately so that he could respond.
Will there be a light at the end of the tunnel for Curtis?
Viewers know that Curtis recently broke up with Emma and assured her that he would be heartbroken by her condition.
But in the end, he was forced to admit the truth to his father, Steve.
Explaining that he had a terminal illness, Curtis said: “It’s a heart condition.
“I can live a completely normal life or; just. Stop anytime, anywhere, anywhere, just.
“I don’t think I’m different in any other way, none of us know.
“My heart has stopped a couple of times. I was dead in terms of the common man.
“I would like to say that there was a bright white light and heavenly choirs but nothing. I don’t remember anything until Medix brings me back.
“Why are you burdening her and Emma? You can’t always get what you want and I’ll get Emma the way I need her – a clean break. I hate her instead of feeling sorry for her.” Was
However, when Emma discovered the truth, she made it clear that she was not letting Curtis go – and that they would work together to improve her health.
