Corrie promises the scenes will rival the fatal tram crash

Corrie boss Iain MacLeod says ‘cinematic’ style scenes will end in the demise of someone fans ‘know and love’

And the scenes that lead to the character’s tragic demise are said to be so epic that they will rival the ITV soap’s famous tram crash incident which happened back in 2010.Speaking backstage at this year’s National Television Awards, Corrie actress Sally Carman, who plays Abi Franklin, teased: “It's going to be so big it will rival the tram crash.”

Sally then added: “You’re going to have your socks blown off and your hair blown back.”Meanwhile, Corrie boss Iain MacLeod continued to whet fans’ appetite by revealing that the storyline will focus on the street’s sinkhole, which appeared in the Platt’s back garden earlier this year.

Iain told the Daily Star: “We have a big stunt planned that will centre around the sinkhole in the Platt family’s back garden.”“And that will result in a death. Deaths only really work if it’s somebody that you really care about and it’s going to be somebody that viewers know and love.”

“It is going to be big. There will be loads of spectacle. It’s going to be cinematic.” And fans can be rest assured that the mystery soap favourite will get a fitting goodbye, as Iain went on to say that the star is thrilled with the scenes.He explained: “The actor who is leaving told me, ‘I love these scenes. They are the best scenes I’ve done on the show.’”

Iain added: “I don’t think I’ve had it before where I’ve had an actor leaving the show and they’ve come to me and said how thrilled they are.”The scenes, which have already been filmed, will also mark the biggest stunt the Corrie cast and crew have tackled since the pandemic - and it will be well worth the wait.

Iain concluded: “It's a statement of intent that we wanted, as a show, to put out there – to make something we couldn't possibly have made in the past 18 months because the pandemic wouldn't allow it.”“But we’re back now, our team is the best in the business and we can do it and we’re going to do it and it’s going to be incredibly impressive.”
