New face Sonya catches Max’s eye (Picture: ITV)

As Max Turner (Paddy Bever) settles into attending a pupil referral unit in Coronation Street, he develops a crush on one of his school mates.

Max is attending PRU at a different school following the truth about Amy’s (Elle Mulvaney) spiking being revealed.

When the school discovered Max spiked Amy but was actually targeting Daniel (Rob Mallard), they had no choice but to suspend the teen.

Initially, Max was apprehensive about going to his new school, but he returned after his first day in a relatively good mood.

Coming up, Max’s positivity continues as he offers to help new friend Sonya with her media studies homework.

After a few messages, Sonya agrees to a date.

Max grins at his screen, while David (Jack P Shepherd) and Shona (Julia Goulding) watch the teen, feeling amused.

The next day, Max cooks a surprise tea for David and Shona, admitting he’s practicing as he’s hoping to impress Sonya.

This all sounds relatively normal for Max – what could possibly go wrong?
