'Coronation Street' bad boy Karl Munro is about to go even further off the rails when he kidnaps Stella Price and Dev Alahan.
Cobbles killer Karl (John Michie) takes desperate measures when partner Stella (Michelle Collins) and friend Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) realise he set fire to the Rovers Return and killed Dev's wife Sunita, said the Daily Star.
Karl takes the pair hostage and Stella tries her best to break free, screaming: "Come on Karl, he (Dev) might be dying."
But all he cares about is that Stella might leave him, causing her to change tack.
She pleads: "I know the sacrifices you made. This is all a mess. The question is, how do we clear it up?"
Earlier this year viewers saw Karl torch the Rovers Return in the hope of framing Stella's then-boyfriend Jason Grimshaw (Ryan Thomas) for having done some dodgy electrical work on the pub.
When Sunita (Shobna Gulati) who he had had an affair with rumbled his plan, Karl left her for dead in the burning pub and later killed her off in hospital, while leading the rest of Weatherfield to believe she was responsible for the fire.
Karl is set to leave the ITV soap in September but is not going to be killed off.
John recently revealed he had a new job lined up already on the BBC One hospital drama Holby City.
