Corrie Hope and Joseph death fears as both kids disappear after bullying hell

It looks like danger for Coronation Street's Hope Stape and Joseph Brown next week, as the pair go missing after a devastating bullying plot.

As though Hope hasn't been having enough trouble talking herself out of the arson attack that caused Alina Pop to miscarry her unborn child, she's set to get even further entrenched in tragedy in 2022.

Gemma's busy getting Aled ready for his audiology appointment when Joseph reminds his dad Chesney that he needs money for the upcoming school trip, and a new school jumper.

When Joseph confides in Hope that they can't afford it, she hands him Fiz's purse and tells him to help himself – but will he go ahead and steal the cash he's eyeing up?

Chesney and Gemma are shocked and upset to learn that Joseph is being bullied at school because his parents can't afford to buy him things. Fiz suggests to her brother that he needs to start focusing more on his son.

But it isn't long before Joseph – who is determined to make a point – goes missing, leading to his parents reporting his disappearance to the police.

As an officer heads out, Chesney heads out and scours the streets for his son, terrified for his safety. Gemma soon comes out of No. 5 and reveals that his jumper has been found by the police, and Chesney feels sick at the news.

When Hope asks her mum what's going on, Fiz explains to her that Joseph has gone missing.

After a fruitless night of searching, Chesney is at his wit's end. His boss Dev offers to set up a fundraiser in order to offer a reward in exchange for information.

Back at Fiz's, the mum orders Hope to tidy her room as someone is coming to value the house for her upcoming move with Phill. Hope watches from her bedroom window as a tearful Chesney and Gemma make a public appeal for Joseph's safe return.

Meanwhile, a forlorn Joseph can be seen wandering the streets, armed with a holdall and a rolled up tent.

A worn out Chesney confides in Gemma that he fears he'll never see his son again.

But he isn't the only one in trouble. Evelyn is simultaneously horrified to find that Hope has slipped out while her back was turned.

Having called Tyrone and made sure Hope isn't with him, Fiz is beside herself.

Will both Joseph and Hope made it back alive?
