CORONATION BEAT; Tracy clobbered by Karen.


THIS is the moment Corrie's Karen McDonald dishes out another classic clobbering on the Weatherfield cobbles.

Seamstress Karen, played by Suranne Jones, gives Tracy Barlow a pasting for spending a night in with her husband Steve.

Tracy (Kate Ford) and Steve cosied up after their families competed in a television quiz show in London.

Karen explodes when she finds out Steve has lied to her and, despite his claims that nothing went on, she viciously lashes out at Tracy.

It is the start of a downward spiral for Karen - set to dramatically leave the show in another explosive bust-up with Tracy on Christmas Day when she kidnaps her baby and starts a fire.

After the earlier bust-up Steve visits his mum Liz for a heart-to-heart over his wife's unreasonable behaviour. But they find themselves on the receiving end of Karen's rage as she drags them out of the Rovers and back to the flat, before telling Liz she is kicking her out for showing Tracy sympathy.

A show insider said: "Karen is really starting to lose her mind. "She is still fragile after her mother died and is lashing out at any opportunity. Poor Steve tries not to stir things up by telling her a few white lies - but it all backfires on him and he ends up making Karen even more angry.

"Tracy is enjoying winding Karen up but she takes it one step too far.

"It's the beginning of the end for Karen - she's at breaking point and who knows what she's capable of."

The episode will be screened next Sunday night.
