'Coronation Street' schemer Tracy Barlow is to be accused of poisoning her daughter Amy by rival Becky McDonald
Coronation Street's Tracy Barlow is to be accused of poisoning her own daughter.
The Weatherfield schemer grows increasingly close to former lover Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) as their seven-year-old child Amy (Elle Mulvaney) battles a mystery illness, prompting Steve's wife Becky to accuse her rival of harming the youngster.
A source said: "Becky loves Amy and can't bear to see her suffering. She also can't bear seeing Steve and Tracy together.
"She is jealous and she quickly realises that Tracy is feeding off the attention Steve is giving them both."
Becky (Katherine Kelly) confronts Tracy, and after branding her the world's worst mum, she reminds everyone how the manipulative brunette tried to sell Amy to Roy and Hayley Cropper when she was a baby, and missed years of her daughter's life because she was in jail.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "Becky can handle herself but Tracy is a dangerous enemy to make.
"If Steve believes Tracy over Becky, it could signal the end of their marriage."
