Coronation Street have released some behind-the-scenes pics that reveal who survives the factory collapse.
The Underworld roof will come crashing down at the hands of a mystery “super-villain” who will wreak havoc for years to come.
A much-loved character will lose their life and the tragedy will have a devastating impact on Weatherfield.
The identity of the poor victim has been kept a secret – with spoiler snaps showing lots of fan favourites lying injured in the rubble.
However, Corrie’s ‘Saturday Sneak Peeks’ have confirmed a number of characters that definitely won’t die in the roof collapse.
The official Corrie Twitter account tweeted: “Take a look behind the scenes in our Saturday Sneak Peeks… What do you think we’ve been filming this week?
The pictures show that Daniel Osbourne and Sinead Tinker are safe from the tragedy as they enjoy a pint in The Rovers.
Also, sat behind them is Billy Mayhew – indicating that the vicar won’t meet a grisly end.
The next snap shows emotional Carla Connor standing outside the pub in the wake of the devastating disaster.
In Roy’s cafe we see Shona Ramsey serving Michelle Connor, which proves neither of them will die.
The final picture sees Johnny and Jenny Connor speaking to a mystery blonde with Peter Barlow propping up the bar.
All of those characters have been ruled out – so who will die?
Gemma Winter, Paul Foreman, Sally Metcalfe, Sean Tully and Kirk Sutherland have been seen lying injured in the rubble.
While Tim Metcalfe, Gina Seddon and Abi Franklin are also at risk because they rush in to help the survivors.
When the identity of the victim emerges, Corrie bosses reckon that there won’t be a dry eye in the house.
The residents of the cobbles will soon realise the tragedy is actually the deliberate work of one twisted individual.
Speaking in December, Corrie boss Iain McLeod said: “We’re knocking the factory down in a colossal stunt and it will at first appear to be an accident and then be revealed to be some sort of criminal enterprise that caused it all to come down – and somebody will be dying in that collapse.”
The roof collapse, which was filmed on a separate set and will involve CGI, will impact the sStreet for months, according to McLeod.
The Corrie boss added: “It’s is a whodunnit without a murder at the centre – instead it’s gross negligence manslaughter.
“It’ll be every bit as intriguing. We’ll start with the crime and then gradually reveal the motives afterwards.
“Obviously everybody’s out of a job temporarily, there’ll be lots of financial and lifestyle stories that spin off from that point. It will have ripples which will extend into the next six or 12 months.”
