Viewers know he is hiding a devastating heart condition from her that requires surgery.
He has sought advice from neighbour nurse Aggie Bailey – but Sally thinks they are having an affair.
On This Morning this week, Holly Willoughby asked their resident soaps expert Sharon Marshall about the fate of the couple.
Sharon replied: “Well, I do not know.
“That is the answer. Before Christmas, there was this big Corrie press conference and the writers admitted this was the subject of a huge debate in the writers’ room.

“What we will see is that she will become more and more paranoid, she will put a tracker on his phone, she will start to think Tim is having an affair.
“He is spending lots of time with Aggie, because she is a nurse, and he is spending time with her. But I hope they don’t.”
And Corrie boss Iain Macleod recently told The Sun that the disagreements are on-going.
He said: “I love Tim and Sally as they feel like an iconic Corrie couple.
“Every so often somebody comes to a story conference and pitches something that splits them up and sends them off with different people. It always starts a massive argument, as it did when we talked about doing it with Fiz and Tyrone.
“Tim and Sally feel right together and are peas in a pod, so that’s why this story will matter to our audience.
“There’ll be a huge level of investment in whether they can get over this hurdle or not.”
