Monday's double bill of Coronation Street will see Luke Britton's friends left reeling after news breaks of his untimely demise - but will the trail lead back to his killer, Pat Phelan?


Tonight's episodes see Alya Nazir left devastated when the police arrive to tell her that Luke's body has been found in his burnt-out car.
