The previous episode of “Coronation Street” showed the return of fan-favorite character Paula Martin (Stirling Gallacher), Sophie Webster’s (Brooke Vincent) ex-girlfriend.
Paula reappeared on screen as Nick Tilsley’s (Ben Price) lawyer, after he was arrested by the police and questioned about the Underworld roof collapse. Hiring Paula as Nick’s lawyer was Sally Metcalfe’s (Sally Dynevor) idea.
She had overheard Nick tell his girlfriend Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) about his dilemma. She recommended her lawyer who defended her in her fraud case to help Nick.
Coronation Street Spoilers – Sally Metcalfe’s Fraud Case
Viewers of “Coronation Street” may recall that Sally found herself at the center of a fraud case. It all started when Duncan Radfield (Nicholas Gleaves) approached her and applied for a council fund for his fake charity, which supposedly helps loved ones of stroke victims.
Having no idea that it was all a scam, she gave over £40,000 to Duncan, who ran off with the money. When the police caught him, Duncan framed Sally and told the police that she was involved in the scam with him. Sally went to jail but was eventually freed with the help of her lawyer, Paula. During that time, Paula got into a relationship with Sally’s daughter, Sophie Webster.
Paula ended her relationship with Sophie at the end of Sally’s trial. The couple hasn’t been going along too well after Sophie angered the judge handling Sally’s case. Their relationship soured even more after Paula found out about Sophie’s plan to have Sally pretend that she was injured so the case would be adjourned. Paula hasn’t been back to the cobbles since Sally’s release from prison.
