Coronation Street viewers saw Craig Tinker get badly hurt in tonight’s episodes (Monday, October 26). But does he die after being shot?

In tonight’s visit to Weatherfield, Scott went ahead with the Bistro robbery without Johnny. After seeing Scott had brought a gun to use, Johnny immediately backed out.

After being knocked out, Johnny came to and reported the burglary to the police. And after hearing about the robbery on the radio, Craig decided to go in without backup in order to save his best friend Faye.

As the police officer snuck into the back of the Bistro, a masked Scott held Faye at gunpoint.

But Craig came in through the kitchen door and told the masked gunman that the best thing he could do was give himself up. But as Scott was distracted, Craig got out his police baton.
