TIM Metcalfe will beg his mum Elaine to move in with him after he rescues her from the psychiatric hospital.
Elaine – who is played by Paula Wilcox in the ITV soap – will warn Tim not to try and move things too quickly.
Tim begs Elaine to move in with him to make up for lost time
Corrie viewers know that Elaine was feared dead for months after she went missing following a terrifying showdown with her abusive ex-husband Geoff, who didn’t want her to give evidence at Yasmeen’s attempted murder trial.
When Tim travelled to Elaine’s home in Bolton, he was dismayed to find a pile of post by the letterbox confirming she hadn’t returned.
But Tim discovered Elaine trapped in a psychiatric hospital last month after he got a call from the police saying they’d found her.
Elaine tells Tim she’ll always be there for him but she can’t move in
When Tim visited Elaine she explained that she’d tried to return to the cobbles to save him and Yasmeen from Geoff, but that she’d broken down on the way and been taken to the hospital.
Upcoming scenes of Coronation Street will see Tim invite Elaine to move in.
When Sally worries he’s trying to replace the presence of his dad Geoff, Tim remains adamant that it’s a good idea.

Geoff scared Elaine away
But later in the week, Sally continues to worry as it becomes clear that Tim is desperate to make up for all the lost years with Elaine all at once.
Later, Elaine confides in Alya about her reservations when it comes to moving in with Tim.
When Elaine says she doesn’t want to hurt Tim again by rejecting him, Alya encourages her to be honest with him.
Elaine takes Alya’s advice and tells Tim she’ll always be there for him, but that she’s not ready to move in yet.
How will Tim take the news?
Later in the week, Tim turns his attention towards Faye, suggesting that they should resume their window cleaning round now that she’s quit her job working for Ray.
