A new teaser has been released ahead of next week's dramatic storyline on Coronation Street, which will see Roy Cropper's (David Neilson) life in danger as he continues to be locked up in prison.


Over five nights, between Monday 27th May and Friday 31st May, viewers will finally learn what happened to Lauren Bolton (Cait Fitton) to cause her disappearance, with the first four episodes reliving the same day through the eyes of different characters.

One episode will follow Sarah (Tina O’Brien), who is determined to rid daughter Bethany (Lucy Fallon) of her ex-abuser Nathan (Chris Harper), by proving he is behind Lauren’s disappearance.

Meanwhile, another will follow Carla (Alison King) and Bobby (Jack Carroll), who are accused of perverting the course of justice as they try to clear Roy’s name, and a third will follow DS Swain (Vicky Myers) and her investigation, as she also has Nathan in her sights.

The fourth will follow Dee-Dee (Channique Sterling-Brown) as she fights for justice for Roy, just as far right activist Griff (Michael Condron) ends up back in Weatherfield prison, looking to force a confession out of Roy by any means necessary. Friday's episode will then see a new day dawn as the mystery of Lauren’s fate is unravelled.

On the upcoming week, executive producer Iain MacLeod said: "This week is so gripping and unlike anything Coronation Street has done before, in terms of the story-telling. It’s modern, really exciting and has some of our favourite characters right in the middle of the drama.

"The murder mystery around Lauren has had us all on the edge of our seats and the race against time across this week to solve it before Roy gets seriously hurt is so engrossing and cleverly plotted. It is also the launchpad for a massive new chapter in that narrative – so you really won’t want to miss it, if you want to carry on trying to piece together this thrilling puzzle!"

MacLeod was promoted from his position producing Coronation Street earlier this year to also oversee Emmerdale, as Executive Producer for Continuing Drama at ITV.
