Coronation Street's Helen Worth has hinted the Platt women will be instrumental in eventually reuniting their troubled family.
The "Corrie" legend's character Gail Platt has seen her family torn apart in recent weeks after sons Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) and David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) admitting to taking and spending their gran Audrey Roberts" (Sue Nicholls) £80,000 inheritance - but Helen admits there is a strong chance they will patch up their differences.
She said: "I think blood is thicker than water and they are a close family unit despite their differences, but I think the coming months are going to be some of the toughest they have been through.
"It will fall to the women of the family to hold things together whilst David and Nick battle it out.
"She [Gail] has really felt like she is stuck in the middle of this awful mess, she feels terrible about what happened to her mum and she is very disappointed in her boys, but at the end of her day they are her sons."
Gail being Gail, she will attempt to sort out the family issues next week when she brings Audrey, Nick and David together to try to iron out their differences - but the meet up breaches their bail conditions and the police turn up.
Helen said: "She is worried about what they are both doing, her boys have really got it in for each other and are only interested in self-preservation.
"She naively thinks that she can sort the situation out and get them all ironing out their issues.
"Typical Gail comes up with what she feels is a foolproof plan and says that they all have to pass round an ornament and only the person holding it can speak.
"Of course, this is something that might work with other people but there is no way David and Nick are going to let the other speak without it all kicking off and that is exactly what happens.
"David and Nick are in breach of their bail just being in the same room as Audrey so when it all starts to kick off it doesn't look good for anyone especially when the police arrive."
