Corrie’s Andy Carver has had enough of being held prisoner by Pat Phelan, but despite numerous escape attempts, remains at the mercy of his captor.

When Phelan says he’s setting him free in France, Andy can’t believe his luck. However, they’re then involved in a horror van accident – which leaves the builder unconscious.

Is this Andy’s chance to get away? And will he take it – or is he set to be thwarted again?

With Eileen having discovered the house where Andy is being held captive by her husband, the baddie builder knows he has to act fast to stop her finding out there’s far more going on in there than just the ‘repairs’ he claims he’s doing.

He tells a stunned Andy that he’s relocating him to France and he plans to set him free over there.

Andy is in the back and had no idea what’s going on. Actor Oliver Farnworth revealed to Inside Soap:

“Andy is tied up in the back of the van to avoid him making any false moves. But the next thing he knows, he’s flying all over the place because the van has crashed.

“Andy manages to kick open the doors using every bit of strength he has left.

“He hasn’t experienced daylight in a long time, and he’s drowsy, so he’s disorientated.”

However, in a shock twist, Andy realises his captor is in trouble and goes to look after him!

“He does think of Phelan and runs straight to the cab to check that he’s okay.” But is he?

It’s quite a strange move on Andy’s part when he could be free of his prison…

“His first feeling is compassion towards injured Phelan, but as it dawns on him this is his chance, and he thinks about what Phelan has done to him over the last eight months, he has a change of heart.

“[Andy] decides this is his opportunity – it’s now or never at this point.”
