FORMER homeless man Stu Carpenter has been estranged from his family for several years.
When Yasmeen Nazir tries to help him find his daughter, the Corrie favourite is scared one of his secrets will be exposed.
What was life like for Stu Carpenter before he wound up in the cobbles?
Since making his first steps in Weatherfield, the beloved character played by Bill Fellows made sure to keep his past under wraps.
It slowly came to light, however, that he has a daughter named Bridget who wanted nothing to do with him.
Next week, Yasmeen Nazir (portrayed by Shelley King) takes it upon herself to bring them together but Stu is furious and berates for interfering.

As mentioned above, Stu has kept his past a secret but small details were soon found out.

This led to him drowning his sorrows mid-shift at the Weatherfield restaurant and Yasmeen's grandson Zeedan tried to handle the situation alone.
