Fiz's daughter Hope will be diagnosed with cancer. The Mirror says that Corrie bosses have consulted the charity Neuroblastoma Children’s Cancer Alliance, doctors and parents of children who have the cancer.
The Mirror says that Hope is five years old, but she was born in December 2010 which makes her only four.
Neuroblastoma, which often develops in the adrenal glands can spread to areas including bones, liver and skin. It makes up 8% of children’s cancers. Fewer than 100 children in the UK are diagnosed each year with most aged five or younger.
The scenes will be aired later this year.
