Tyrone Dobb’s life has been turned upside down by the flat fire started by his stepdaughter Hope Stape – and the repercussions spread much further on next week’s Corrie.
The doting dad has found himself torn between Hope and his loyalty to girlfriend Alina Pop as his ex Fiz took the rap for the 10-year-old’s jealous arson attack on Tyrone and Alina’s home, and he doesn’t expect to end up engaged.
After splitting from Alina he accidentally proposes to her while reeling from the news that Hope could face a trial on Coronation Street.

The drama unfolds when, in the Rovers, Alina is upset to hear her neighbours full of sympathy for Fiz and Tyrone over the Hope situation.
Tyrone ‘accidentally’ proposes
Feeling sorry for herself, she orders a double gin and tonic and as she emerges from the Rovers, she’s hurt to see Fiz and Tyrone heading to number 9 laden with chips.
Spotting her weaving about, Fiz sends Tyrone over to make sure she gets home safely.
Alina, played by Ruxandra Porojnicu, tells Tyrone she felt forgotten as he focused on Fiz and Hope and Tyrone tells he he’d imagined they’d marry and raise a family.
He’s stunned when Alina agrees to try again and get married, and Tyrone realises they’re engaged.
Tyrone is unhappy
As they prepare to leave for Hope’s sentencing, Tyrone drops the bombshell news on Fiz and his gran Evelyn Plummer.
At the youth court, Evelyn pours scorn on Tyrone for getting engaged by accident and Fiz feels a fool for believing it was over between them and that he was putting his family first.
Back at number 9 Tyrone is in tears as he blames himself for wrecking everyone’s lives.
Taken aback by his unhappiness. Fiz and Tyrone crack open the prosecco.
Mechanic Tyrone, played by Alan Halsall, fell for Alina earlier this year after the younger woman moved in with the family as their lodger.
The pair realised they both loved cars and dogs and a romantic connection developed.
