Tyrone reaches the end of his tether when Kirsty lashes out at him yet again, so he informs his partner that he wants her to move out - adding that he's keeping baby Ruby, but she can have as much access as she likes.
Kirsty (Natalie Gumede) is horrified as Tyrone seems determined not to back down this time, but she soon fights back by producing a document that means she's still the one calling the shots…
Digital Spy recently caught up with Alan Halsall, who plays Tyrone, to hear more about the latest twists ahead for his character.
Tyrone's had lots of storylines, but the domestic violence plot seems to be standing out as one of the best. How have you found it to film?
"In all honesty, I've loved it. Like you say, I've had quite a few stories but in terms of being an actor, this is one that I can really get my teeth into. You try to tell a story as best you can, and here we've had a great story to tell.
"Obviously I'm also telling that story with Natalie Gumede, who I absolutely love working with. She's amazing, so it's been a really enjoyable experience."
How have the public been reacting to Tyrone's ordeal?
"A lot of people have come up to me and said, 'You need to bin her, Tyrone!' Also, this is my first storyline where I've been on Twitter, and you get instant feedback from people on there. Even though it's a serious story and one that will affect a lot of people, I think people are enjoying watching it. People haven't really seen domestic violence this way around on screen before, so I think people are really responding well to the storyline."
Have you had any feedback from men in the same situation as Tyrone?
"I actually have on a couple of occasions now. When I first started this storyline, I spoke to a chap who had dealt with this and heard about a charity that he was involved with. Then since the story has started airing, I've had tweets from people who've said it's happened to them in the past, or that they know someone who's gone through the same thing.
"I suppose we are only telling a story at the end of the day, but if we can help just one person to come out and speak about what's happened to them, then it can only be a good thing."
Tyrone spent a long time convinced that Kirsty's anger and violence were just due to pregnancy hormones. How does he feel now it's clear that isn't the case?
"All the way through, Tyrone has just wanted a happy family life with a wife and a baby, so he will delude himself at times when it comes to Kirsty. He obviously knows now that it wasn't just due to hormones, but there is a genuine love there between Tyrone and Kirsty, so it's not just as simple as him ending things.
"There's a genuine connection there between the two of them, and the family unit he has now is everything that he's ever wanted. So he's in a really tough position - he's caught between a rock and a hard place."
What can you tell us about Kirsty's big bombshell next week?
"By this point, Tyrone has finally decided that the situation needs to change - they can't go on like this, so he has to do something. He's been driven to the decision that either he has to leave, or Kirsty's going to have to leave.
"When Tyrone tells Kirsty this, she's really devious. She then tells Tyrone that she's registered the birth of Ruby, but without him as the father on the birth certificate, which means he has no legal rights. That obviously puts Tyrone back a few steps…"
Kirsty is vowing that Tyrone will never see the baby again if he dumps her. Does she mean it, or is it just an empty threat?
"Oh, I definitely don't think it's an empty threat. Kirsty has manipulated a situation where Tyrone doesn't really have a choice - he has to stay with her, because there's no way he would see another baby go after what happened with Jack."
Do Kirsty's latest antics make Tyrone see the full extent of what she's really like?
"I think it's a real slap in the face for him, but I don't think it completely changes things between them, because there is still a love there between them. But I think gradually the love is being outweighed by the manipulation and the violence.
"There's still a relationship there, and I think that's why Tyrone finds it so difficult to walk away from Kirsty. Tyrone genuinely loves Kirsty, and he obviously loves Ruby with all his heart. Those are not easy things to turn your back on."
We've heard that Tyrone's plan B involves taking an entire year off work…
"That's right - Tyrone is still a bit concerned about Kirsty's mental state and leaving her at home all day with the baby. His only option is to send Kirsty back to work, and for him to take the year off and look after Ruby instead. That's more out of necessity than anything else - he's backed into a corner."
Fiz is still giving Tyrone advice. Will he listen to her more than he did with Tommy and Tina?
"Tyrone needs an ear to listen to his problems, and that's what Fiz will become - someone to help him through his ordeal. But sometimes it's hard to hear the truth or hard to hear advice from people.
"I don't think Tyrone will take everything Fiz says as gospel, as he'll have his own ideas on how to cope with the situation. But he does want someone to know his situation, so that he has someone to guide and advise him. Tyrone's definitely glad to have a friend there!"
Tyrone has always stood up for himself when things have turned nasty with Kirsty. Is it important to you that he's not just a victim?
"Absolutely - it was a conscious decision when we first heard about the storyline. I didn't expect Tyrone to just cower in the corner every time Kirsty turned violent - of course he would stand up to her, and of course he'd argue back.
"Tyrone has been strong, but he's one of those people who would never raise his hand back to Kirsty. So when Kirsty does get violent, he doesn't have much choice but to take the beatings."
Corrie bosses have said that Tyrone and Kirsty's storyline will run into next year. Are you glad it's not being quickly tied up?
"Definitely, when you've got a case like this in real life, it can happen for years without people finding out. The storyline is running as it would in the real world. For me as an actor, that's great because I think people really get involved in stories when they're told over a long period of time.
"It seems now that every time something happens between Tyrone and Kirsty, I get a thousand tweets about it! I really do feel that people are getting involved in the story, and that's great."
Have you ever been hurt while filming one of the violent scenes?
"I've never been hurt, but I've been genuinely scared! (Laughs.) Natalie is actually quite ferocious when you see her go in a scene. We'll rehearse things beforehand, but we'll do it at half pace and not put the full emotion into the rehearsal, as we're just reading the words through.
"But then we go for a take and when Natalie really kicks off, I have been genuinely scared once or twice - but that's fantastic and it's because she's so good at her job."
Do you think there's any hope of Tyrone repairing his friendship with Tommy and Tina?
"I think there is, because he's had his arm twisted by Kirsty to take this attitude towards the two of them. I don't think Tyrone would ever really alienate a friend for good. He's even forgiven Kevin, who slept with his wife and had a baby with her.
"That's one thing I know about Tyrone - he will forgive, because he's done it with his mum all his life. I think at some point they can definitely have a relationship there again, because deep down he would like to be their friend."
Have the Corrie team told you how the Tyrone and Kirsty story will end?
"Absolutely not - I don't know how it will end. Obviously I know a little bit further ahead than most people because of what we're filming now. But it's as much a surprise to me as it is to the viewer, so I'm always looking forward to seeing where it's going to go next!"
