"I've said it before but the support I've received both inside and outside of the show really has been overwhelming so thank you.

Teenager Max Turner – who is played by actor Paddy Bever – found himself targeted by a gang of extremists ultimately putting his own life and that of his friends and family in danger.

The wayward teen played by Paddy Bever could do nothing when faced with Griff's manipulative tactics.

In a short amount of time, the lad was enticed into Griff's activist group, using his video editing skills to help them spread their racist views throughout Weatherfield.

But things took a turn when Griff and his gang planted a bomb in the cobbles as Maria Connor's Peace Market was underway.

It's since become clear that Max will also have to endure the consequences, although he was groomed by Griff.

Initially arrested for incitement to murder in recent Corrie scenes, Max's charges are escalated to Encouragement of Terrorism due to his propaganda videos.

It also comes after thug Blake – who is played by actor Adam Little in the ITV soap – stabbed Alya Nazir as part of a terror attack on the refugee drop in centre launch.

Blake livestreamed the event as Alya introduced Maria and she welcomed people to the refugee drop in centre.

Max ran out of his house and fled to Speed Daal to try and stop Blake – but as he ran in searching for Blake, Gary grabbed him and stopped him.

Max begged him to listen but Gary grabbed him and refused to listen, leaving Blake a chance to attack Maria.
