Coronation Street has a blockbuster week in store in next week’s episodes as Kelly Neelan (Millie Gibson) seems set to die in a horrific final showdown, complete with assassins, shootings, graves and rooftop stunts.
In a stand-off with Gary Windass (Mikey North), Kelly is too late to withdraw her demand that he is murdered; and soon the pair face a fight for their lives like no other.
Also fighting for his future is Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce) as he continues to try and pull the wool over Audrey Roberts’ (Sue Nicholls) eyes.
And he would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for the arrival of his fuming wife; and the digging of his neighbour Leo.
Elsewhere, Roy Cropper (David Neilson) is upset when Hayley’s famous anorak is given to charity by mistake – but fear not, heroic Evelyn Plummer (Maureen Lipman) is on hand to save the day.
