Ken Barlow’s attacker will be revealed in a special week of Coronation Street episodes beginning on Monday 29 May.
As has become tradition, Corrie will move to 9:00pm as ITV screens the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent during weeknights. And the soap will use the occasion to solve its current whodunnit, which has left the Barlow household filled with seething hostilities and suspicion.
Shock scenes will see Ken’ memory returning as he pieces together the argument he had on the night of his attack. As Ken realises that it was indeed a member of his own family who attacked him, he ends up facing up to the assailant and demanding answers.
By Wednesday, Ken’s attacker has been arrested for attempted murder and will decide to make a full confession. But what does this dramatic turn of events mean for the Barlow clan? And will the guilty party be brought to justice?
