FOR several weeks, Maria Connor has figured out that something isn’t right with her son Liam.
The Coronation Street favourite takes action online to get to the bottom of things and she’s shocked by what she finds.
ITV viewers have been fearing the worst for Liam Connor as the schoolboy portrayed by Charlie Wrenshall faces grave danger at the hands of unhinged Mason Radcliffe (Luca Toolan).
The troublesome character made his first appearance in the cobbles in 2023 and Liam instantly became the target of all his attacks.
In recent scenes, Mason and Liam nearly fought it out before the bully pulled out a knife on his victim, prompting many fans of the Manchester-based program to believe death could be the storyline’s outcome.
Tired of his predicament, Liam starts to contemplate death as his only remaining way out – but his mother Maria (Samia Longchambon) is determined to stop him from making a huge mistake.
Coming up next week, Liam announces to Maria that he’s not going to school anymore.
Gary Windass (Mikey North) and Maria see Mrs Crawshaw and explain how Liam’s refusing to go to school because he’s being bullied by Mason and Dylan Wilson (Liam McCheyne).
Mrs Crawshaw tells them that until they have proof, there’s nothing she can do.
Later on, Eileen Grimshaw (Sue Cleaver) urges Maria to check Liam’s socials as she’ll likely find the evidence she needs there.
Maria then takes matters into her own hands and creates a fake SendPx account before sending Liam a follow request.
As Maria scrolls through the comments on Liam’s account her face becomes ashen while she realises what is really going on.
Gary and Maria tell Liam that the only option left is for him to change schools but, in his bedroom, the lad googles ways to kill himself.
In other scenes, Maria confronts Mason and Dylan and tells them that because of their vile bullying, Liam will have to change schools.
Mason’s amused whilst Dylan feels bad and, later on, Liam calls at the salon to tell Maria she’s a good mother and he loves her.
As Liam heads out, he looks at her, aware it could be for the last time as he remains determined to go through with his plan.
At the school, a teacher shows Mrs Crawshaw the search history on Liam’s returned laptop.
