Baldwins versus Barlows
09:30 23 July 2006
The legendary feud between the Barlows and the Baldwins is to be reignited in a gripping new 'Coronation Street' storyline.
The Barlow family will get their mitts on the late Mike Baldwin's underwear factory, after a new will is uncovered.
In the revised document, Mike leaves his fortune and business to his youngest son Adam Baldwin, who is Ken Barlow's grandson.
The will is to spark a full out war between Adam, actor Sam Robertson, and his half-brother Danny Baldwin, played by Bradley Walsh.
A show insider told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Viewers know that Danny schemed his way to becoming Mike's sole heir and they will be delighted he is about to receive his come-uppance."
Before Mike died, Danny conned his ill father, who was battling Alzheimer's disease, to change his will to leave him everything.
When Mike eventually died from a heart attack, he got his hands on the Underworld factory and his home.
However, the real will was eventually discovered by Danny's girlfriend Leanne Battersby, and despite paying her £50,000 to give him the document, the now jilted lover decides she wants revenge and gives a copy to Blanche Hunt, Ken's mother-in-law.
The source added: "Legal action will be looming - and there is even the possibility of police action to indict Danny for fraud."
