Coronation Street’s Kylie Platt will die in the arms of her husband in Friday’s episode.

ITV has released sneak preview photos of the tormented mum, played by Paula Lane, which show her last dramatic moments on the cobbles.

In one image she is seen lying in the street, cradled by her husband David Platt (Jack P Shepherd).

Paula has said her character’s death scene will be a first in the world of soap.

How Kylie dies is being kept strictly under wraps, but speculation on social media is centering around a bullying storyline.

In Wednesday’s Corrie instalment, David’s niece Bethany Platt (Lucy Fallon) told Kylie about her ordeal at the hands of a group of bullies. Fans jumped on the significance of this plot development.

Also, Kylie’s guilt about killing her ex-boyfriend, drug dealer Callum Logan, has dominated her life and the return of his thug friend Macca to the Street may have some bearing on her exit.
