The Corrie character is desperate to avenge his wife Kylie and is willing to sacrifice his life to get even with Weatherfield villain Clayton

Corrie fans should prepare for chaos and catastrophe as two families are plunged into crisis in five explosive episodes over the course of one week.

After the death of his wife Kylie, David Platt is dealt another agonising blow when he hears her killer Clayton may not get the justice he deserves!

Determined to take matters into his own hands David’s plan is devastating and disturbing; he intends on driving his car, laden with petrol, to blow up Clayton. But when Gail discovers a farewell video he’s made for the kids, it becomes clear that his revenge plot to kill his enemy is also a suicide mission.

Desperate to stop her son acting out his reckless plan, Gail locks David in the cellar, but she is terrified when he escapes and sets off to find Clayton. Whether he reaches his wife’s killer remains to be seen, but soap bosses have hinted that David’s actions will have far-reaching consequences – and not just for the Platt family!

But it’s not just the Platts who suffer a shock next week, because Peter Barlow will be returning to the cobbles and he doesn’t get the warmest reception!

Peter’s says he’s lost his job, but with a cut to his face and his night-time disappearances it soon becomes clear that there’s more to his sudden re-appearance than he’s letting on. Ken’s suspicious of the secrets Peter is hiding and when he tackles him in the early hours, no one can predict the consequence!
