'Coronation Street's Becky McDonald attempts to kill her scheming half-sister Kylie Turner after deciding she is responsible for all her problems
Coronation Street's Becky McDonald tries to kill her half-sister Kylie Turner.
The mouthy blonde - played by Katherine Kelly - hits the bottle following a row with mother-in-law Liz McDonald (Bev Callard), but lashes out at the wrong target after deciding conniving Kylie (Paula Lane) is the source of all her problems.
Katherine said: "It's the biggest fight scene I've ever done. Becky decides everything that's gone wrong is ultimately Kylie's fault and gives it to her with both barrels. Rage is boiling inside her - she basically tries to kill Kylie."
Becky and Liz come to blows over the fact that Becky and husband Steve (Simon Gregson) gave up his daughter Amy to her real mother Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) in order to stop the killer revealing they had taken on the care of the barmaid's nephew Max after buying him from Kylie.
Katherine explained: "Liz entirely blames Becky. The fact that she and Steve gave up his daughter to a murderer - Tracy - to save Becky's nephew Max has been the elephant in the room. Liz shows them what they've done in black and white.
"It gets to the point where Becky is either going to break a glass in Liz's face or walk out - so she has to go. Liz has driven her away and pushed to drink, so she gets wasted and reverts to type. Becky just wants to take the edge off everything."
After she then goes to confront Kylie, things take a turn for the worse when she has another fight with Liz and concludes that the only solution is for her and Steve to leave Weatherfield with Max (Harry McDermott) and Amy (Elle Mulvaney) in tow.
Katherine told Inside Soap magazine: "It's dawning on Becky that they will never legally get Amy back without losing Max - it's one or the other.
"Becky's default has always been to run away, but she can't this time - not unless all the people she loves go with her."
