The war between Pat Phelan and Anna Windass will intensify in next week’s Coronation Street as the murderous builder tries to cover his tracks.
Pat and wife Eileen will return from holiday, only to be met with the news that the house they’ve been doing up has burnt down.
Viewers know that Andy was being held captive in the basement of the property prior to his murder, so Phelan is left employing all his acting skills as he feigns surprise upon receiving news of the arson.
Later on, the police will be seen quizzing Phelan about Seb’s recent accident and he takes the opportunity to point the finger at Anna, revealing that he witnessed her slapping him across the face.
But things aren’t all going Pat’s way: when Nicola announces that she’s moving to Australia, Phelan can’t help but blame Anna for turning his daughter against him.
As he stares at Anna with abject hatred, a new plan forms in Phelan’s mind. By the week’s end, Pat will have dropped the bombshell news that Nicola is expecting Gary’s baby.
And as Anna reels from the news, Phelan offers her a deal. But what exactly does he have to say? And how will Anna react?
