Bev Unwin returns to Coronation Street next week, but she comes bearing bad news – Deirdre dropped dead in her garden earlier in the day!

Ken is understandably devastated by the sudden loss of the woman who he went through so much with, but his despair deepens when he learns from Bev that the reason Deirdre stayed away so long was because she was ashamed of their daughter Tracy’s affair with Tony Stewart, who was in a relationship with Deirdre’s best mate Liz.

Also on the Street next week, Kylie tries to get David’s trust back by setting up a honey-trap in which she fools Callum into thinking they’re back together. That way Sarah could see what a despicable man Callum really is and the Platts might return to some sort of normality.

Does it work?
