She and Tracy have been at each other's throats at every available opportunity so the latest bombshell with further deteriorate the already toxic relationship between the pair.
Tracy has had quite a colourful love life during her time on the cobbles and she has had relationships with Steve MacDonald and a short-lived marriage to Robert Preston.
The dastardly woman has also drugged Roy Cropper and told him they slept together and he was the father of her child Amy. The pair even married so that Roy could ensure he had access to the child.
Following Amy's birth it was revealed that Steve was in fact the real father.
Last year Tracy fell pregnant by Steve yet again, this time with twins but suffered a miscarriage.
The explosive episode will air on Sunday October 14 on ITV.
