In March 2016, Sarah checked in at the hospital with her sister in law Kylie (Paula Lane), afraid that something was wrong as she hadn't felt him move all day but a scan showed that the baby was fine Josh Lyons, portrayed by Adam Chapman, is the son of Jenny Lyons (Natalie Lawless), who was good friends with Sarah-Louise Platt (Tina O'Brien).
Josh made his first appearance in November 2000 when he, his mother and grandmother went to the Platts' house for a bombfire.
As Jenny held Josh, she and Sarah comforted Candice, who went out with the much older Vikram Desai (Chris Bisson) and felt embarrassed when he discovered her real age.
Josh and Jenny attended Bethany's first birthday party and Jenny met Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell).
Jenny would give birth to her son Josh (Adam Chapman) later in the year.
When Jenny had her son christened, it inspired Sarah to give her daughter Bethany (Amy and Emily Walton) a christening of her own.
