So after last night’s episode of Corrie, poor Andy Carver is back to being a cellar dweller at Pat Phelan’s mercy after he came SO CLOSE to tasting freedom.
Phelan had decided that Andy was trustworthy enough to be set free. He was even kind enough to supply him with a new identity – Gavin – and some Euros.
The only condition was that he didn’t tell anyone about the nine months he’d spent as Phelan’s prisoner, and begin a new life in France.
But it turned out that Phelan had one sneaky little trick up his sleeve – this time in the shape of a fake van crash. Phelan accidentally-on-purpose drove his van into a tree.
Andy, who was tied up in the back, broke free and decided to chance his luck running away from an unconscious Phelan.
Only, little did Andy know that Phelan was FAKING his injury, just to put Andy’s loyalty to the test once and for all.
And Andy came SO CLOSE to passing the test when he dialled an ambulance for ‘injured’ Phelan. But when he realised what he was free, he decided to leg it instead.
Big mistake. Huge.
It was only a matter of time before Phelan found Andy, struggling to find his way through the woods and use his legs properly after nine months in a dark basement.
The deranged builder told Andy that he’d set him up, before knocking him out and dragging him back to his basement prison.
Fans took to Twitter and called for Andy to stop being such a wimp and just wallop Phelan once and for all. They pointed out that Andy is half Phelan’s age and could easily outrun or overpower him.
Yes, but he’s not really had much access to a gym and has missed a few #legdays people.
Oh Andy, bet you’re wishing you just screamed at the top of your lungs when Eileen was at the top of the stairs the other day.
