Most of the drama is focused around Kylie Platt, as actress Paula Lane prepares to take some time away from the cobbles on maternity leave.

Kylie's tearaway ex and Max's father, Callum, is an unwelcome guest at the Platt's on Christmas Day — what will David think when he sees Callum offering his wife drugs, then introduces himself as Max's real dad?

Elsewhere, there's more heartache for Michelle as Steve sends mixed signals and Gavin — or at least, the guy pretending to be Gavin — and Steph get closer.
