Back in February, predicted a new health battle for young Oliver following a spoiler picture from his birthday party celebration saw him asleep on the sofa while his family and friends gathered around. 

Now, producer Iain has spoken out about what’s to come and explained how this storyline could be one of the most hard-hitting, set to affect numerous families. 

In recent scenes, fans have seen Steve and Tracy Barlow’s (Kate Ford) relationship “re-established” to become the “strongest” it ever has been. 

Something will happen that probably has the most far-reaching impact of any story we’ve done since I’ve been on the show, and I include both stints.

“Something horrifically difficult and challenging will happen that draws in 3-4 different clans on the Street and forces them to deal with the hardest thing anyone would ever had to deal with,” Iain told 

The storyline in question will begin this spring and will play out until the summer apparently. 

And this certainly fits in with recent spoilers which have suggested Oliver will start experiencing epileptic fits while left in the care of Summer. 

A previous soap synopsis explained how Leanne asked Steve to look after their son for a day, but tragedy occurs. 

But what is the diagnosis? 

Many fans took to Twitter to discuss the possible storyline. 

One said: “See know somethings up with oliver. Hes always tired and sick. Now leannes seen panicking too. Deffo the big spring storyline #Corrie 

“I said the big storyline involving several families would be something to do with Oliver and something happening to him #Corrie,” anther remarked. 

Viewers will have to wait and see whether or not Oliver will be able to manage his epilepsy – if indeed it is epilepsy. 

There is a chance he might have inherited a genetic disorder, his grandfather Jim McDonald (Charles Lawson) was diagnosed with Myotonic dystrophy several years ago.

It is a muscle loss and weakness condition which leads to the person diagnosed struggling with mobility as it worsens, could this be the beginning for Oliver?

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
