CORRIE GOES HORROR FOR HALLOWEEN THIS OCTOBER
Weatherfield lives up to its name this October when a huge climatic event brings death and destruction to Coronation Street.
As real and metaphoric storm clouds gather over the famous cobbles, the residents make plans for Halloween parties and holidays, oblivious to the tragedies waiting around the corner.
The week starts on a high note with Debbie Webster putting the finishing touches to the House of Horrors attraction behind the street. Residents excitedly choose their Halloween costumes and no one spots the ominous shifting of earth around the Platt’s sinkhole.
Dev, Aadi and Asha Alahan prepare to leave for their family holiday, but as the thunder crashes overhead they find themselves lost on a country road. Heading for the same country lane is a prison van rushing injured drug dealer Harvey Gaskill to hospital, but he has another destination, and vengeance, in mind.
Back on the street Abi also wants revenge and, having got her hands on a gun, is determined to make Corey Brent pay for murdering her son Seb. Despite her own feelings towards Corey, Nina Lucas is desperate to stop Abi, but with the storm raging will she get there in time?
Over at the Rovers, Jenny Connor is enjoying a new relationship with toyboy, Leo, but is stunned to learn that her ex-husband Johnny has plans to leave Weatherfield.
Keen to speak to Johnny she is distracted by her worries about Leo’s safety but, as she searches for him in the pouring rain, the ground literally opens up beneath her! A desperate Johnny is determined to save her and edges ever near the giant sinkhole.
Producer Iain McLeod said: "We set out to make a week of breathless, brilliant drama - and boy, have our outstanding cast, crew, design team and writers delivered! The week is jammed packed with twists and turns, and astonishing visual spectacle. It also has heart, heroism and humour in the most unexpected places...
"I have to say it again: Our team has excelled themselves. Making any TV in a pandemic is hard, especially if you’ve been doing it non-stop for over 12 months - so I have to tip my hat to everyone for their tireless efforts in continuing to raise the bar, against all the odds."
