Two murder attempts, Aadi sex whirlwind and someone leaves for good in Corrie

Coronation Street is getting grim next week, as more than one character is targeted for murder – so who will survive, and who might die?

Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce), unsurprisingly, is central to one of the plots, as he remains intent on killing wife Elaine Jones (Paula Wilcox).

He is getting more and more desperate, and he plans to lure her to a clifftop to do the deed.

However, his whole plan comes undone and, as truths come to light, he might be facing deadly danger himself.

Elsewhere, Spider Nugent (Martin Hancock) faces a race against time after Toyah Battersby’s (Georgia Taylor) kidnap – and he soon finds himself staring down the barrel of a gun.

A shot rings out, but who falls to the ground bleeding?

Many are possibly dying, but Aadi Alahan (Adam Hussain) is suddenly full of life as he ends up in an unexpected and passionate fling with a client’s wife.

Courtney (Stephanie Davis) has her claws into him, but it’s going to end in tears.
