Sarah Platt’s plan to trap Coronation Street villain Callum Logan is set to backfire on her when he realises what she is up to and attacks her.
New pictures released of Sean Ward and Tina O’Brien in rehearsal offer a sneak peek into the opening scenes for the soap’s highly anticipated live episode, celebrating 60 years of ITV.
Sarah lures the drug dealer to the Platts’ house by sending a message from sister-in-law Kylie’s phone, telling him they are ready to pay the £20,000 blackmail money he has demanded.
