'Coronation Street': Natalie Gumede confirms new Kirsty outburst

By
Coronation Street star Natalie Gumede has revealed details of Kirsty Soames's next big meltdown.

Kirsty and her partner Tyrone (Alan Halsall) are currently enjoying happier times on the cobbles following the arrival of their baby daughter Ruby. However, this doesn't last for long as Kirsty begins to struggle with the pressures of motherhood once Tyrone returns to work.

When Ruby won't stop crying on a particularly difficult day, Kirsty begins to smash things up at home in a moment of rage. Tyrone is later left horrified when he arrives back and surveys the wreckage, fearing that unstable Kirsty could have harmed their child.

Gumede told All About Soap: "She's on her own in the house and swipes the plates off the table and shouts at the baby. Obviously that's an awful thing to do, but in the realms of what people might expect from Kirsty, this is quite mild! She never harms her child - she's just frustrated and upset."

She continued: "[Tyrone] walks in and Kirsty's thrown the baby mobile across the room so that's by the door. Then he sees the smashed plates - so he runs across the room to Ruby, pushing Kirsty out of the way.

"He picks Ruby up and runs straight to the doctor - he jumps to a conclusion. It's more about his perception of what has or could have happened, because he's suffered at the hands of Kirsty."

Tyrone's trip to the medical centre reveals that Ruby is fine, and he finds himself covering up the reasons for his concerns in front of the doctor.

However, when Tyrone discovers that Kirsty has been lying about attending her counselling sessions, he realises that he still cannot trust her.

Gumede concluded: "Her reasoning to Tyrone is that she's heard it all before and counselling wasn't helping, she couldn't face it and she felt too ashamed. But she promised over and over again to go and hasn't.

"The one thing Tyrone was holding onto was that she was finally admitting what she was doing was wrong, and now she's gone back on that. The promises of being ready to change are not ringing true. She's not ready in her own mind yet, and that's what worries him."
