Coronation Street's week of special episodes as truth about Lauren is revealed


Get ready for a huge week of drama on Coronation Street as Roy’s prison hell comes to a head and predator Nathan Curtis is firmly put on the police’s radar as we discover what really happened on the fateful night that teenager Lauren Bolton disappeared!

In a gripping promo from ITV Studios we see how the week will play out, the tension building as the show is stripped across five nights with the first four episodes reliving the same day but through different characters’ eyes.

We see Sarah (Tina O’Brien) determined to rid daughter Bethany (Tina O’Brien) of her evil ex-abuser Nathan (Chris Harper) who has been making his presence felt once more. With Bethany threatening to leave Weatherfield, Sarah is determined to prove that Nathan is behind Lauren’s disappearance, whatever the stakes.

Carla (Alison King) and Bobby (Jack Carroll) are under pressure, accused of perverting the course of justice as they desperately try to clear Roy’s name. 

DS Swain (Vicky Myers) also has Nathan in her sights. The evidence against him mounting, are the police about to nail their man or is there still more to this mystery than meets the eye?

Meanwhile as Dee-dee (Channique Sterling-Brown) fights for justice for Roy, far right activist Griff (Michael Condron) lands back in Weatherfield prison where Roy (David Neilson) is on remand awaiting trial for Lauren’s murder.

With old scores to settle and revenge on his mind Griff takes it upon himself to try and force a confession out of Roy. Believing him to be Lauren’s killer, Griff is out for blood and it soon becomes clear that Roy is in grave danger. 

But as Roy’s life hangs in the balance an invaluable piece of evidence which could clear the innocent cafe owner’s name will come to light in a shocking revelation for the viewers. 

The week ends as a new day dawns in Friday’s episode and the mystery of Lauren’s fate continues to be unravelled. 

Executive Producer Iain MacLeod said: “This week is so gripping and unlike anything Coronation Street has done before, in terms of the story-telling. It’s modern, really exciting and has some of our favourite characters right in the middle of the drama. The murder mystery around Lauren has had us all on the edge of our seats and the race against time across this week to solve it before Roy gets seriously hurt is so engrossing and cleverly plotted. It is also the launchpad for a massive new chapter in that narrative - so you really won’t want to miss it, if you want to carry on trying to piece together this thrilling puzzle!”

The climactic week of episodes will be stripped across five nights between Monday 27th and Friday 31st May, as the show’s biggest secret is revealed following months of suspicion and intrigue.

“The murder mystery around Lauren has had us all on the edge of our seats” says Iain MacLeod. Not me, I just find it all too tedious and just want it to end.

Seriously, has a body been found? I am a few days behind, admittedly, but come on...

I think Lauren's being held at a 'retreat' and that Rowan was her rich, mystery fella.
I used to think it was Joel but that cufflinks thing was probably a red herring, as is Nathan's return.
Nathan will just quietly disappear when the drama is over.
Abbey getting het up about a prison football team is silly. I don't honestly think she'd give a hoot, as his freedom is still curtailed.
It's all leading up the video produced by The Gazette and this video getting into the public domain for it be an be stolen and used.
An alternative angle to this - Max has done the website and launched it, but he needs a friendly video clip to attract trade, for SM purposes.
Kev refuses to be filmed, so Abbey does it. Then the video gets out and it's manipulated. Max then feels awful about it and Kev is furious.

You don't need a body to charge someone with murder

I really don't think Max has the intelligence you're crediting him with to come up with that scenario.
Abi is not getting het up about the prison video, it's the making out of Corey to be the good guy that's getting to her, and rightfully so . The production company were in the wrong for not showing a balanced view of Corey in the first place
