Coronation Street teenagers Chesney Brown (Sam Aston) and Katy Armstrong (Georgia May Foote) will worry that their unborn baby is going to be disabled. The teenagers face a long wait  to find out if the baby due at Christmas will have the same disease as Katy's older sister Izzy Armstrong (Cheylee Houston) who suffers from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome which is a hereditary disease.

The Weatherfield teenagers panic when they're told by doctors that they must face the possiblity that their unborn child may suffer from the same connective tissue disorder as its aunt. In scenes screened next week, Chesney and Katy go to the hospital for a scan of the baby alongside Katy's father Owen Armstrong (Ian Puleston-Davies)  who asks if the baby could be born with the same disorder as Izzy.

According to the Daily Star, the young parents to be are alarmed when the nurse says that they possibly won't know if the baby also suffers from the condition until Katy has given birth.  The newspaper claims that the storyline will continue on until Christmas when the baby will have tests done and they will get answers. Katy will be supported fully by father Owen who assures her that the baby has a brigt future regardless.

Owen says: ''Just look at our Izzy. She lives a completely normal and happy life, and what baby could ever have a better role model than her to look up to?"
