Is Daniel Osbourne about to kill off Coronation Street’s longest-serving character? A shock cliffhanger just broadcast saw an increasingly unstable Daniel tell Corrie icon Ken Barlow, “This ends here” – the murderous look in his eye indicating that he intends to do away with his dad.
The showdown came after Ken challenged Daniel about his mum Denise’s whereabouts before finally realising that it was he – and not grandson Adam – who attacked him earlier this year. As realisation dawned, Ken tried to flee the flat only to be pushed over as Daniel shifted a bookshelf against the door.
Viewers will now have to wait until 9:00pm to find out what happens while Ken is at the mercy of his assailant. However, scenes to be shown later this week will see Daniel put under arrest when he decides to make a full confession to the police.
But will it be on a charge of murder after killing off the Weatherfield legend that is Ken Barlow?
