Creepy Karl Munro (John Michie) has already brought about the demise of both Toni the firefighter and Sunita, but could he have a third victim in his sights?
Next week, viewers will see the Rovers Return arsonist put pressure on Stella (Michelle Collins) to marry him as soon as possible. But unnerved by his manner, she refuses to commit. In front of Karl, Leanne (Jane Danson) then warns her mum that marrying him would be a terrible mistake.
Later, a furious Karl threatens Leanne in the street, telling her to stop poisoning Stella against him or she’ll regret it. But with Leanne in the dark about what happens to those who try to cross him, will she end up taking Karl’s words of warning seriously?
The scenes can be seen on Wednesday 1 May at 7.30pm on ITV.
