Pat Phelan actor Connor McIntyre has hinted how his character will leave Coronation Street in upcoming scenes.
Amid the speculation that the villain will cause harm on other people when he attempts to get his revenge on a number of residents including his wife Eileen and daughter Nicola Rubinstein, Connor explained that Phelan is also at risk.
Despite remaining tight-lipped about the exact details surrounding the upcoming storyline, Connor confirmed to OK! Online at the BAFTA TV Awards that the villainous builder is going to be in trouble.
Asked if he will fall victim to someone’s attack or whether the police will finally catch up with him, the actor explained: “All of that. Can you imagine? He’s away and he comes back to Weatherfield and that’s only going to end a couple of ways.”
However, Connor cryptically added that Phelan might be able to escape unscathed yet again after he managed to hide his previous crimes so well.
“Maybe is the answer. Maybe and there is always room for another twist with Pat Phelan.
“This reaches some kind of conclusion for Pat Phelan. But what is that going to be? Is it going to be arrest or is he going to be killed?,” he added.
Despite telling Nicola that he didn’t want anything to do with her or her unborn child after he realised she was trying to expose him, Conor explained: “His greatest desire to see his grandchild encompasses his absolute doom.”
Meanwhile, series producer Kate Oates recently hinted that Gary Windass and Sarah Platt will be involved in the twist.
“[Pat’s] gonna come back, Gary is heavily involved in this because don’t forget that this whole storyline started with his mum. It was the rape of Anna Windass that began the whole kind of dark process, so he’s going to be heavily involved in it.
“Maybe he’s involved in what brings Phelan back to the street, so that’s quite a big thing and that is going to bring Sarah into the mix as well.”
Praising actress Tina O’Brien, Kate added: “Tina gives such a brilliant performance. I’m looking forward to seeing that and it’s all going to be set against Robert and Michelle’s wedding.”
Coronation Street continues on ITV, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
