. As Lucy strode out of the restaurant, Stu protested his innocence, explaining to Yasmeen and Alya that he was wrongly imprisoned for the murder of a young girl.

Yasmeen tells Alya that it’s true and she never wants to see Stu again. Speaking about when he found out about Stu's past Bill, who plays him, said; "When Iain MacLeod [Corrie's producer] first told me the storyline, I thought it was a great storyline and I liked the twist. He then told me that Stu had been in prison for 27 years which surprised me and he told me that Stu had had an affair with a young waitress when he was married and had a child at home and that was a surprise too! But that’s why I call Stu a flawed character and I love this storyline because I love that Stu is flawed, I like that he has made mistakes."
She revealed the horrifying truth to Yasmeen (Image: ITV) As for whether he had seen anyone correctly guess his character's secret, Bill said: "It’s been really interesting to read what everyone has been saying online and their suspicions of Stu. On social media, someone mentioned that they thought Stu had been in prison, which was correct but no one has guessed why Stu was in prison and no one has guessed how long Stu had been in prison which even now, when I say that it was 27 years, I think, 'Wow, that is a lifetime.'" Now, it's all about Stu proving his innocence. "The first major thing is to try and get the people he loves and cares about to believe him; Yasmeen, Alya and Zeedan," Bill says. "Without giving the game away, there are loads of twists and turns in this storyline, it’s not just that Stu needs to prove his innocence… There are loads of elements to this story that come into play. This bombshell has blown up now."
