‘Coronation Street’ fans received some shocking news on Friday (18 August), when it was revealed that Pat Phelan has been keeping Andy Carver prisoner.
Eight months ago, we saw Phelan whack Andy on the head with a laptop, before wrapping him a rug and apparently leaving him for dead, but in actual fact, the former bistro worker has been held hostage this entire time.
Now the secret’s out, bosses have revealed a video showing every single time Andy’s fate was hinted at:
Did you spot any of the clues?
Tonight (Monday 21 August), viewers will see Andy attempt to escape, waiting for his captor with some rope and pouncing when he arrives in the derelict basement.

Back in 2002, Dirty Den made a headline-grabbing return to Albert Square, 12 years after being presumed dead, while 2015’s live week saw Kathy Beale making a comeback.
