Coronation Street's Catherine Tyldesley warns viewers over 'difficult' scenes in aftermath of Aidan's suicide – but insists the storyline will 'save lives'

While fans of the soap recently watched through tears as Aidan took his own life, actress Catherine has warned the devastation will be felt for weeks to come.

Revealing that the heartbreaking scenes are far from over, she told The Daily Mirror: "The episodes will be difficult for many to watch. Myself included. We are all in some way affected by suicide."

Despite the the tough viewing, Catherine, who plays Eva Price, the mother of the late character's child, hopes that the storyline will help save lives.

She added:"I firmly believe this storyline will help so many people, and even save lives. It's time to talk.

"We hope Aidan's story will encourage people to reach out and seek help. And encourage others to speak to someone if they're worried."

Upcoming episodes will see the heartbreaking task of sorting through Aidan's flat fall on Michelle and Carla Connor as Johnny struggles to come to terms with his son's death.

While rifling through his belongings, Michelle (Kym Marsh) stumbles upon a letter addressed to Johnny.

Johnny later opens it in front of the rest of the family and reads out "I’m sorry, Aidan."

Aidan's poignant will then makes the distraught Connors realise just how long the factory boss was suffering.

Viewers watched in distress last night as Aidan – played by Shayne Ward – decided to take his own life.

Fans of the long-running soap were distraught as he held his baby daughter, before visiting Eva in her secret cottage and sharing a dance with her.
