JACOB Hay has been trying to get his life back on track after giving up on his drug-dealing ways.
But when Amy Barlow's life is in danger, he makes a huge decision in Coronation Street.
The lad played by Jack James Ryan was rattled when his father Damon (Ciarán Griffiths) rocked up the cobbles.
Things were made all the more harrowing when Damon took over the Bistro.
Coming up on ITV, he introduces Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) to Dan, a fruit and veg supplier, and tells her he can do a far better deal.
However, Jacob is suspicious when Damon tells him that Dan's first delivery is due this afternoon… and a package containing drugs will be hidden in the crate of olive oil.

Jacob later feels stressed as he expects the first drugs delivery and a party of police officers arrive for a retirement do with a sniffer dog in tow.
A crate of olive oil is then delivered and Jacob manages to get the package before leaving the Bistro.
But nothing gets past the sniffer dog who barks at the crate, prompting PC Craig Tinker to head for Jacob's flat.
In later scenes, Jacob suffers the consequences as Damon gives him a beating.
