Corrie fans ‘work out’ Curtis’ real identity as they predict he is Ray’s son
Coronation Street fans are certain they've figured out newcomer Curtis' true identity in a shocking twist.
Ackley Bridge's Sam Retford recently joined the cast, and has been flirting back and forth with Emma Brooker – but fans have predicted she could be "set for danger" in a major fork in the storyline.
With Curtis working at the bistro in between his university lectures, he approached Emma and step-mum Tracy on Monday night and attempted to arrange a date with Emma.
But Tracy put him off, insisting on a "treat 'em mean, keep 'em keen" approach.
And Curtis' eager behaviour convinced fans that he has more sinister intentions than merely scoring a date – and that he's actually related to soap villain Ray Crosby.
"I think Curtis has something to do with Ray???" one penned on social media.
Another chimed in: "Oh my god, Curtis is Ray's son!"
"Wonder if he's anything to do with Ray…" someone else posted, as a fourth wrote: "Curtis is too nice… I am hoping he actually is and not some evil mastermind serial killer!"
Another fan said: "I feel like there is something dodgy where Curtis is involved…", as someone else begged: "Emma and Curtis are well suited. Please don't make him a bad guy!"
Later in the episode, Tracy was giving Emma some sage advice about not seeming too keen to avoid "getting her heart broken again".
"I'm talking about you holding out, not putting out!" Tracy warned her step-daughter. "That way you're gonna have Curtis eating out of the palm of your hand in no time."
Ray is currently being held in prison after attempting to rape Faye Windass – but she is also in custody, as she mistook Adam Barlow for villainous Ray and bashed him on the head with an award at the bistro.
But could Curtis be a twist implemented by soap bosses to bring Ray's presence back to the Street?
Previously, fans had predicted that Emma was "set for danger" in a major Curtis twist, fearing he could be setting up dad Steve – perhaps in order to swindle him out of the charity money he'd raised for late son Oliver.
"Knowing the #Corrie writers of late, lovely Curtis will turn out to be f****** Harvey’s son or Corey’s brother," one fan theorised at the time.

Curtis ticked all of Emma's boxes during their conversation at the Bistro last month, as he let Emma know he was studying to become a doctor and hoping to graduate in five years.
He went on to explain that he planned on qualifying as a consultant cardiologist in a decade, with a pipe dream to win the Tour De France at the same time.
But, judging by some fan predictions, it looks like he could be lying about that too.
