There are some spoilers on Coronation Street.

In the upcoming Corrie scenes, Rob Mallard discusses Daniel Osbourne''s dramatic decision.

Following a period of professional wreaths stemming mostly from his relationship with high school terror, Max Turner Daniel advises Mrs Cranshaw that he does not believe he is appropriate to teaching when she urges him to work for a permanent position.

"I believe in his heart that he wants to do it, but his head''s telling him that perhaps he''s not actually cut out for the job," Mallard said of Inside Soap.

"It''s essentially a loss of trust," says the director of "The Amy Barlow spiking incident. It will be very difficult for him to walk away from this job. He loves self-flagellating, he loves something to brood over, and he must make himself suffer.

"So he sees taking the job away from himself as a form of punishment." But I''m not certain that he''s taught."

Daniel may still pursue a few career paths, according to Mallard.

"I think anything that involves an argument might suit Daniel! He''d probably make a good lawyer, but that''s already covered by Adam, according to Barlow.

"He was actually training in journalism at one point, and that does involve confrontation, so maybe he''d return to that," the soap star says.

By the sounds of it, we''ll be out of a job fairly soon.

Coronation Street is airing on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 8pm on ITV and is streaming on the ITV Hub.
