One Coronation Street cast member will meet their maker, and it is going to be down to a sick arson atttack. The shocking incident will lead to an investigation as while police originally think it is an accident, they will eventually realise it was a planned attacks.
The culprit has also been revealed as the soap’s next big villain as they wreak havoc on the cobbles. Iain MacLeod teased: “I won’t tell you who it is– we’re a long way off that yet.
What I have always liked about Corrie is the ability to have villains like Hillman and Phelan who come in and burn bright and also the more complicated, long range villain like Mike Baldwin – ruthless, self-serving and looking out for number one.
We’re designing a character in that latter type who can stay long term as an antagonistic person who’s just messing up lives.
The soap have also confirmed it is a character that viewers already know, but fans will have to wait and see who it could be. A strong contender is Ali Neeson.
He pulled a pole out of Ronan’s stomach that was keeping him alive as an act of revenge, as Ronan had just mown down Ryan Connor.
