Is Imran leaving Coronation Street?

Earlier this year it was reported in The Sun that Charlie would be leaving Coronation Street after five years of playing Imran.

A source told the publication he felt it was “time was right to try new things”.

“He’s hugely talented and very ambitious and wants to see what else is out there,” a source said.

“He will always cherish his time in Weatherfield, but for now it’s goodbye.”

Now fans have come up with different theories about how Imran could leave the show.

3. Abi ruins Imran’s career?

One fan thinks that Abi will be able to prove that Imran has been trying to set her up and it could completely ruin his career and reputation.

Over the last few weeks, Imran has been convinced Abi is back on drugs and hired a man named Ben to get proof on Abi.

However this week she realised Imran hired Ben to follow her.

Now one fan believes if Abi prove can Imran was trying to set her up, she could ruin his career and future, which could lead to his exit.

4. Alfie turns out to be Kevin’s son

Another theory is that Alfie could actually be Kevin’s son.

Viewers know Abi cheated on husband Kevin with Imran.

After sleeping with Imran Abi suspected she could be pregnant, however a test came back negative.

When she went into labour in March, Abi was shocked to realise she was having a baby and that it must be Imran’s.

She told Imran she was the only person he had slept with in months. It’s also worth noting that Kevin has mentioned he’s unable to have more children.

Although it seems unlikely very Kevin is Alfie’s dad, fans are hoping there’s a chance Alfie turns out to be Kevin’s son.
