Coronation Street spoilers – Griff’s financial backer revealed

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has revealed that extremist gang leader Griff Reynolds has a secret ally.

Griff is currently manipulating teenager Max Turner by recruiting him to help spread racist propaganda among the Weatherfield community.

Spider Nugent, who is working undercover to bring down Griff, recently reported back to his police colleagues about how the villain may have a secret financial backer.

That theory proved true in Monday’s episode (Dec. 19), when we found out exactly who is funding Griff’s activities.

In an illegal meeting, Griff spoke to Maria Connor’s political nemesis Councilor Cameron, demanding more money.

Councilor Cameron was reluctant to provide further funding, but Griff insisted he needed the money to make further far-right videos.

When Councilor Cameron questioned what was in it for him, Griff replied: “Everything we do will drag the political landscape to the right – just the way you like it.”

The corrupt politician eventually agreed to Griff’s demands, hoping that their alliance would remain secret.

The final scenes came when Max planned to go on a “team camping trip” with Griff and the others.

David Platt tried to ban Max from taking part, but felt powerless when the teenager promised to go anyway.

Corrie previously revealed that Max’s story will come to a head in the New Year, when he realizes that Griff may be planning something dangerous at the Weatherfield Peace Market.

Show producer Iain MacLeod recently spoke about the future of the plot, explaining: “The story will encompass the ‘traditional’ recruitment techniques of extremist groups and we will see Max befriend older, mentor-like figures who will give him a sense of loyalty and brotherhood.

“Later, later in the story, we’ll explore a very 21st-century problem: teenagers who self-radicalize through watching extreme content online.

“Ultimately, we wanted this to be a story about communication in families — what are the right and wrong ways to talk to younger family members who gravitate toward extreme views?

“For the conclusion of the story, David’s misjudged attempt to deal with Max will drive the narrative to a shocking and thought-provoking climax.”

Coronation Street sent on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
