Coronation Street: Carla Connor fires Stephen Reid

Coronation Street killer Stephen Reid (played by Todd Boyce) has been desperate to get his hands on owning Underworld.

After successfully getting Carla Connor (Alison King) to think her mental health was deteriorating again, she left him in charge with Sarah Platt (Tina O’Brien).

Since then, Stephen has been faking his relationship with Elaine Jones (Paul Wilcox) and even proposed to her, with no intention of going through with it.

A couple of weeks ago, Stephen applied for life insurance in Elaine’s name as a married couple without her knowing.

In upcoming scenes next week, Carla calls a business meeting with Stephen and drops the bombshell that for the sake of her future she has decided to sell her share of the factory.

She also reveals that she has already found a buyer for the shares and is intending on going through with the sale.

Stephen’s shocked but manages a smile as he reads an email from the life insurance company confirming his first payment.

He later suggests to Elaine that they remortgage Redbank, their new home, in order to buy out Carla’s share of Underworld.

Elaine has been desperate to get Stephen to finally move in and start planning the wedding, so will she agree?

If she agrees to the sale, how will her son Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine) feel, especially after making his opinion on Stephen clear?

Viewers of the ITV soap have been theorising for some time that Stephen will eventually kill Elaine to get his hands on as much money as he can.

Elaine actress Paula Wilcox recently opened up about her character’s relationship with Stephen and teased the danger she is in.

“I think as far as she is concerned, there is nothing but excitement about moving to the next stage of the relationship,” she said.

“She is really looking forward to having him to herself and being alone with Stephen. But, of course, the more she is on her own with him, the more time he has got to get his plans off the ground.

“It is going to be a very interesting time. Hopefully, she has people watching out for her because she is completely unaware of what she is taking on.”

Is Stephen so desperate for the money that he will kill Elaine so soon after taking out the life insurance?

Will killing Elaine finally be the killer’s downfall?

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8pm on ITV.
