Coronation Street's Becky McDonald will attempt to kidnap adorable toddler Max after he is taken into care
Coronation Street's Becky McDonald will attempt to kidnap Max after he is taken into care.
The blonde barmaid - played by Katherine Kelly - will reach breaking point when the adorable toddler is taken away by social services after they receive a tip off that she and husband Steve (Simon Gregson) bought Max from Becky's troubled sister Kylie Turner (Paula Lane).
After discovering the tot is being fostered by a family on the other side of Weatherfield, a distraught Becky heads to the house in the hope of getting her son back.
However, his concerned foster parents have been warned to notify the police if she comes in search of Max - played by Harry McDermott - and tell the disturbed mum the authorities will be called if she doesn't leave the premises.
According to the Daily Star newspaper, Steve manages to reach Becky before police arrive and is forced to drag the howling blonde away before she gets to see Max.
The heartbreaking scenes are to mark the start of nine months of harrowing storylines for the actress, who announced she was leaving the ITV1 soap earlier this month after five years of playing Becky.
She said: "It's been one of the hardest decisions of my life. I love 'Coronation Street' and everyone here. I have had the most blissful five years, I wouldn't change one moment of it - but it feels like the time is right to say goodbye to Becky."
