Coronation Street's latest shocking storyline will see manipulative Tracy Barlow get her comeuppance after she is beaten up by a gang of thugs
Coronation Street's Tracy Barlow is to be brutally attacked by thugs.
The Weatherfield superbitch will be mugged by a vicious gang after she is forced to stand in as a delivery driver for local underwear factory Underworld.
Tracy - played by actress Kate Ford in the ITV soap - will first come to blows with factory manager Carla Connor (Alison King) after she asks her to stand in for Kirk Sutherland (Andy Whyment) because Tracey feels the job is beneath her.
According to the Daily Star newspaper, she rants: "Me, a van driver? Yeah, I have a problem with that. I'm not employed as a driver and I'm not doing it."
But caving in to Carla's demand costs Tracy more than just her pride, as a gang of thieves beat her to a pulp before stealing the van's contents.
The manipulative brunette's worried boyfriend Rob Donovan (Marc Baylis) is left shocked at the sight of her bruised face, prompting him to volunteer to take her to the hospital.
Tracy says: "No, I'll be fine. I just need a large brandy."
The incident will also cause a big falling out between siblings Carla and Rob when she thinks he is behind the van attack as payback for a previous incident.
He rants: "A little gratitude would be nice. Tracy did her best to fight off those scumbags and all she got was a smack in the face.
"My girlfriend got injured. The last thing she deserves from you is snide comments."
'Coronation Street's latest dramatic storyline will air within the next month.
