Coronation Street has released a special video that rewinds the drama to the night of Ken’s attack, revealing Daniel to be the one who sent his dad toppling down a flight of stairs.
Actor Rob Mallard appears at the beginning of the footage, stating that one million Corrie fans voted in a poll asking Who Pushed Ken? – with the majority believing that it was Adam and not Daniel who was the perpetrator.
So, well done Coronation Street writers on wrong-footing the viewers…
Upcoming scenes will see Ken face Daniel after realising that his own son is responsible for the attempt on his life.
But the soap’s producer Kate Oates has revealed that she considers actor Rob Mallard too good an actor to be consigned to soap jail:
“We didn’t want to lose such an amazing actor, so we’ve built in a way for him to stay within the family. Daniel is the one who stands the greatest chance of being forgiven by Ken because, in many ways, he’s his favourite.
“But it’ll be interesting to see how the rest of the family responds once they find out the truth and how welcome he is.”
Watch the special video below. Beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of all next week’s drama on Coronation Street.
