Sinead Tinker has terminal cancer and given just months to live in devastating Coronation Street storyline

Coronation Street’s Sinead Tinker is to be given the devastating news that her cancer has returned and is terminal.

Filming has begun on the popular character’s heartbreaking final scenes which will air later in the autumn.

Sinead and her husband Daniel Osbourne’s second wedding is tinged with sadness as the bride discovers on the big day that her cancer has returned and is untreatable.

Like Daniel did for her last year, Sinead springs a surprise wedding on the love of her life next week on Coronation Street.

But as Beth Sutherland helps her niece to do her hair, she’s horrified to discover a lump on Sinead’s neck.

Taking Daniel to one side the bride breaks the news that she’s found a lump but begs him to to bury his fears and enjoy their day.

Their plans for a mini-moon are scuppered when the hospital call to ask them to come in, and the couple’s worst fears are realised as the consultant breaks the news that the cancer has spread to her lymph nodes and liver and Sinead has only three or four months to live.

Reeling in shock they share their awful news with Daniel’s distraught father Ken Barlow, his half-brother Peter, Carla Connor, his nephew Adam Barlow and Beth.

A distraught Sinead tries to blame herself for delaying her chemotherapy treatment but Daniel points out that had she not made that choice, they wouldn’t have their beautiful baby boy Bertie.

Sinead’s life was shattered almost a year ago by the news that she had cervical cancer while expecting Daniel’s baby.

At their 12 week scan they were thrilled to see their baby on the screen – but after sending Daniel away Sinead was examined by an obstetrician who told her she had a lump on her cervix.

Returning to the street, Daniel was waiting to say ‘I do’ with a surprise unofficial wedding ceremony, and they always maintained that one day they would do it officially.

Sinead was devastated to be advised to terminate her pregnancy because she needed treatment immediately, but at first she kept the terrible dilemma a secret from Daniel and hid the diagnosis from him.

She then decided to stop her chemotherapy treatment despite being being reassured by a specialist that opting for a less aggressive form of treatment wouldn’t harm her baby.

In January Sinead had to have an emergency cesarean section at 27 weeks so that she could start life-saving radiotherapy.

This time it was Sinead’s turn to spring a surprise wedding

And earlier this year, in emotional scenes the new mum rang a bell in a hospital ceremony to mark the end of her treatment.

Katie McGlynn, who has played machinist Sinead in Corrie since 2013, previously warned that her character might be in remission, but she wasn’t out of the woods yet.

“I much prefer it this way because it’s like real life,” she told the Manchester Evening News.

Katie, from Rochdale, and Oldham actor Rob Mallard, who plays Daniel, have worked with charity Mummy’s Star on the heartbreaking storyline.

The charity is dedicated to women and their families affected by cancer during pregnancy.

Coronation Street has also worked closely with Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust on this storyline to ensure accuracy.

Pete Wallroth CEO of Mummy’s Star founded the charity when his wife died shortly after the birth of their daughter.

He said: “Cancer in pregnancy is a subject that few understand and even less realise happens to two women a

day in the UK, so to have been asked by the Coronation Street team to work with them in advising on the

storyline over the last 12 months with Rob and Katie has been both a pleasure and a wonderful opportunity. 

The pair have been praised for the difficult scenes

“They have listened to first hand accounts from women, asked for so much advice and this has been reflected so professionally and realistically on screen through their portrayal of Sinead and Daniel’s harrowing experiences.

“We know this has helped reach new audiences in terms of awareness and we are very thankful to the whole

team at Coronation Street for giving the subject this platform and in doing so, indirectly helping more families.”

Rebecca Shoosmith, head of support services, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, said “Nine women are diagnosed with

cervical cancer every day in the UK and if caught early it is a very treatable cancer so it is fantastic that the programme has been able to raise awareness of the disease.

Sinead and Daniel have been through a heartbreaking time

“Sadly Sinead has an advanced diagnosis. We have been working very closely with Coronation Street on this incredibly moving and poignant storyline over the last year to ensure it is portrayed as accurately and sensitively as possible.

If you have concerns about your own health then please do get in touch as we can answer your questions and provide support at every step.”

Katie McGlynn said of next week’s scenes: “Daniel and Sinead are just broken, we just tried to play it with as much realism as we could, they’re both in disbelief.

“Sinead doesn’t understand she just wants to be a mum to Bertie, she wants to know how long she’s got left.

“They’re both completely devastated and in shock and all the emotion just comes pouring out.

“I’ve been working with Mummy’s Star, they specialise in helping families and women who’ve been suffering from cancer in or around pregnancy.

“It’s been really helpful chatting to them, some of the families and the founder Pete Wallroth who’ve been through this in real life.

 

“Every story is different, and it’s quite a unique experience battling cancer in pregnancy, Sinead blames herself, so their advice and support has been very gratefully received.”
