In case you missed the seismic ructions over at No 1 Coronation Street in last night’s double bill, the ITV soap has provided a handy catch-up of the shock moment that Ken suffered a stroke.
Yes, the Barlow family’s patriarch collapsed in cliffhanger scenes, leaving Corrie fans concerned about Ken’s future.
And, as it turns out, actor William Roache was also left worried about whether this was the end for the character he’s been playing for 56 years.
“When I first heard about it, it did make me feel paranoid about my job,” he admitted. “The first thing I said was, ‘do I get better?’ But, of course, I’m loving the storyline to bits. Having been here since the beginning, I’m very fortunate to have a very viral and vibrant story.”
You can rewatch the shock scene from Monday’s episode below. Beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of all next week’s drama on Coronation Street.
