Coronation Street: has Kylie’s friend Freddie killed himself? Watch the scene

Is actor Derek Griffiths set to exit the ITV soap already?


Former Play School presenter Derek Griiffiths may have only made his Coronation Street debut last Friday – but is his character – widower Freddie – about to meet his maker already?

Advertisement readers can get a sneak peek of scenes to be shown this Friday in which Kylie pays an impromptu visit to Freddie’s house, only to find him slumped in a chair with a bottle of vodka and a stash of pills by his side.


Viewers have already seen Kylie agreeing to help Freddie with preparations for his late wife’s funeral. But the beautician is in for a shock when, after finding one of Sadie’s scarves in the salon’s lost property box, she decides to call at Freddie’s and return the item.

But when she spies her friend lying unresponsive through a window, Kylie decides to take action. But is it already too late to save the grieving Freddie?

You can watch the scene from Friday’s episode below. Beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of all next week’s drama on Coronation Street.
