Dramatic new pics! Will Andy pull the trigger?

Pat Phelan will demand that Andy shoots dead Vinny in tonight’s Coronation Street double bill in order to win his freedom, as the dastardly villain steps up his evil game.

New pictures released by Corrie show Phelan on the edge with a haunted look, as he has murder on his mind.

Over the past few days, fans have seen Phelan (played by Connor McIntyre, who recently said that his character could get darker) take a second hostage and arm himself with a shotgun as he plots to take revenge on fellow conman Vinny Ashford (Ian Kelsey).

Phelan has convinced terrified and increasingly fragile Andy Carver (Oliver Farnworth) that he will set him free if he helps take Vinny hostage as his “replacement”.

But in tonight’s big double bill he reveals that he expects Andy to murder Vinny in order to get his freedom. In the sinister gloom of an abandoned paper factory there is a sense of foreboding as Andy is given a gun by the epic baddie.

The big question now is can Phelan convince Andy to pull the trigger?

Or will Andy resist his evil manipulation? And will anyone get out alive?

Coronation Street is on at 7.30pm and 8.30pm tonight.
