Coronation Street: Is Jacob the ghost?

Jacob worked for Harvey

Coronation Street viewers have been left wondering who is in the ghost costume after last night’s episode (Wednesday, October 20), but could it be Jacob Hay?

Harvey Gaskell has been wanting revenge on Leanne Battersby for months for testifying against him in court.

Last week when he discovered Leanne’s sister Toyah scuppered his appeal, he swore revenge on the Battersby sisters.

This week Harvey injured himself and on his way to hospital he attacked the van driver and escaped.

He made his way to the Bistro where he found Leanne dressed as Morticia.

When Leanne tried to escape, Harvey tied her up and covered her mouth with tape. However when Harvey’s back was turned Leanne managed to get out of the Bistro.

On the street, Leanne tried to hide as Harvey looked for her, but fans noticed someone dressed as a ghost who appeared to be watching.

Later Harvey caught up to Leanne and went to attack her, but he fell through the ground.

As Toyah and Simon comforted Leanne, the ghost could be seen watching them, but who is it, and why were they watching Leanne and Harvey?

Coronation Street: Is Jacob the ghost?

Some fans have come up with a theory that it’s Jacob back to get revenge on Harvey for putting him in hospital.

While some fans do believe it’s Jacob, the actor who played Jacob, Jack James Ryan, shared a picture of the ghost on Twitter writing: “#Corrie” with the eye emoji.
