On the night of the attack he took the bloody clothes he was wearing and dumped them in an old backpack in the river.

He had assumed they were gone for good – but he will soon discover that a homeless man called Stu found them – and is using the backpack.

With Nina Lucas and Asha Alahan desperate to get the backpack from Stu to prove Corey’s guilt, the killer decides to pay him off to get it first.

However a spoiler clip has revealed that Stu double crosses him.

After agreeing to pay Stu £100 for the evidence, Corey meets him but is left furious.

Stu refuses to give up the backpack – and points out he’s got Corey to meet him in front of security cameras.

He then tells Corey he wants £500 for the backpack.

“I’ve slept on it and I don’t think £100 is enough,” he tells him.

“It’s like that old saying, ‘what price freedom?’ And yours needs to be higher.”

But has Stu bitten off more than he can chew?
