Corrie Bernie’s exit ‘sealed’ in unexpected twist — and she doesn’t go to jail

Coronation Street star Bernie Winter is facing time in prison – but fans have now rumbled how she’ll avoid it.

The character, played by Jane Hazlegrove, first rocked up the famous cobbles back in 2019. Since then, she’s become a firm favourite with viewers.

However, in Weatherfield recently, Bernie found herself involved in drama when she got arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods. As fans will recall, she was trying to quickly sell some stolen items with her dodgy pal Big Garth.

Bernie turned to crime to make some quick cash in a bid to help out her son Paul Foreman (Peter Ash). Paul is currently battling with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and last week, he found out he had just 6 to 12 months to live.

In court, Bernie pleaded guilty. However, the judge revealed that because of her criminal record, she is likely to be sentenced to time behind bars.

She then had to share the heartbreaking news with Paul and Gemma that she could be jailed for as much as six months. Understandably, her kids were devastated.

But fans are now convinced that Bernie will avoid going to prison, and have rumbled how she’ll pull it off. Over on X, formerly known as Twitter, viewers reckon she will do a runner.

“Oh, oh. Is Bernie gonna do a runner?” said one fan. Someone else chimed in and mused: “Bernie’s going to do a runner, isn’t she?” A third also quipped: “Bernie should go on the run.”

Bernie’s potential prison time comes amid her son Paul’s battle with MND. In March, fans of the ITV soap watched Paul starting to struggle with his grip.

He later began dropping glasses, mis-throwing darts in the pub and was sent home from work after experiencing difficulty handling his tools. His symptoms were initially blamed on a car accident but he was eventually referred to a neurologist for tests and he was diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND).

More recently, Paul found out that he only has 6 to 12 months left to live. It has been confirmed that Paul will be leaving Coronation Street at some stage and he will sadly pass away following his battle with the rare condition that affects the brain and spinal cord.
