Coronation Street is set to be rocked by ‘big stunts’ in forthcoming scenes as new producer Kate Oates prepares to shake up Weatherfield with some huge drama.Kate, who famously dropped a helicopter on Emmerdale, recently took over as the chief of Corrie and fans are eagerly awaiting the first signs of her work towards the end of summer. And according to actor Shayne Ward, who plays Aidan Connor, there are exciting times ahead.
He told the Daily Star: ‘I can’t say a lot, but there are some big stunts coming up. Now we have a new producer … things are looking amazing. I keep saying to her that I’ll be down for any big stunts that come my way, so hopefully I can get in on the action soon.’
Shayne might want to avoid that, though – after all, Kate killed off Katie Sugden, Val Pollard, Ruby Haswell, Donna Windsor, Robbie Lawson and Tess Harris as part of her spectacular scenes during her tenure at the Dales.
Coronation Street recently aired a shock crash which uncovered Callum’s body but luckily no-one perished. Will everyone be so lucky next time though?
