EMOTIONS run high for Kevin Webster in tonight’s Coronation Street.
The mechanic breaks down in tears as he discusses son Jack’s future after the youngster had to have his foot amputated.
Kevin and his daughter Sophie are in a meeting with little Jack’s doctor, who says he plans to refer him to a rehabilitation centre in Liverpool.
Webster breaks down in tears as the doctor tells him the prosthetic specialist will be visiting the seven-year-old that afternoon.
He fears Jack won’t be ready for a meeting with a specialist, and Sophie offers to support her brother at the appointment.
But Kevin tells Sophie to keep away – insisting it should just be him and his boy at the meeting.

How will Sophie deal with being frozen out?
Jack had to have his foot amputated after he developed sepsis – which is also known as blood poisoning – after grazing his knee while having a kickabout with big sister Sophie.
He had been left with Sophie for the day and later felt unwell but she insisted that he should go to school.
Jack was then sent home from school and Seb and Faye found him slumped on the stairs.
Luckily Ali spotted them and urged them to get him help as quickly as possible.
Corrie teamed up with the UK Sepsis Trust to ensure the storyline is as true to life as possible.
A soap source previously said: “His life hangs in the balance and Kevin is faced with the prospect of amputation for his son to keep him alive.
“It’s an emotional storyline for Michael Le Vell and Kyran Bowes, who plays Jack.”
