“She’s going to turn to Vicar Billy for guidance as the end nears.”
The source added how Sinead will try to make her passing as easy as possible for her loved ones by planning her own funeral down to the fine details.
They added: “She’s going to plan her entire funeral in an effort to save Daniel and her family from the pain of it.
“Corrie are really keen on exploring the spiritual side of death.
“They want to show how people can turn to religion to help them cope in a time of tragedy like this.
“She will be seen talking with Billy about life after death, whether there’s a heaven or hell and who might be waiting for her.
“It’s going to be heartbreaking to watch.”
