Adam Barlow gets an unwelcome visitor next week, and the encounter ultimately ends in a shocking death.
Teasers have revealed that a car accident later in the year leaves at least one Coronation Street character fighting for their life – and the arrival of Ronan Truman triggers off these horrifying events.
Corrie fans will know that Ronan is a drug dealer, who briefly appeared in the ITV soap last year.
Adam found himself in serious danger when a drugs scam backfired, and Ronan was at the centre of the dodgy deal.
In scenes to air next week, Ronan returns to Weatherfield and collars Adam, explaining that his son Cormac is just out of Young Offenders and needs help finding a job.
Adam will be seen convincing Michelle to hire him as a dishwasher at the Bistro. And it soon becomes clear that Cormac isn’t a reformed character at all.
In fact, he’s dealing drugs just like his dad, and it’s not long before Ryan becomes involved in some very scary stuff.
The storyline is sowing the seeds for a huge autumn stunt – due to air in October – which will see Michelle, Ryan and Ali involved and their lives are in danger.
Soap insiders report that Cormac dies of a drug overdose in Michelle’s flat, leaving a terrified Ryan to deal with the consequences (not very well).
Ryan panics and does nothing to save Cormac – paving the way for some unsavoury types to come looking for revenge.
An insider recently told The Sun: “It looks like Ryan has got in with the wrong crowd.
“It’s going to culminate in a high-speed crash which leaves him in a coma fighting for his life.”
Who will survive the crash?
