Corrie's Becky to go on the run?

Coronation Street's Becky McDonald could be set to go on the run.
The bolshie barmaid - played by Katherine Kelly - is wracked with guilt after stealing money from the corner shop during the tram crash disaster, and believes the only way to stop herself from facing a life behind bars once again is to flee the cobbles.
Simon Gregson - who plays Becky's hapless husband Steve in the ITV1 soap - explained: "Steve reckons it's just a ridiculous solution.
"Whenever Becky gets into any sort of trouble, she wants to run away from it - and Steve thinks that's very childish and stupid. Becky's behaviour is going from bad to worse!"
However, sneaky Steve is equally desperate to keep the shameful truth under wraps, as he believes it could ruin his friendship and solid business relationship with corner shop owner Dev Alahan (Jimmi Harkishin).
Simon added to Inside Soap magazine: "Steve's certain that if Dev knew Becky took the cash, he'd go to the police. But if he thought that Steve did it, then Steve is pretty sure their friendship would mean that Dev might not report him.
"Dev would drop him like a hot potato, though."
