Corrie lines up a number of shocks for various residents of the eponymous Street (Picture: ITV)
Coronation Street sees in 2024 in a dramatic fashion, with big returns, hostage situations and a shocking betrayal all lined up in the first week of the New Year.
The Rovers returns, so to speak, as do Bethany Platt and Damon Hay, who both cause quite a stir upon setting foot back on the famous cobbles, though in very different ways.
Cassie Plummer, meanwhile, receives a huge shock, while the residents of the eponymous Street are soon to be delighted when Daisy Midgeley re-opens the Rovers.
Fancy a first look at what’s coming up?
We’ve got not one, not two, not three but FIVE clips to tide you over until our next visit to the cobbles, previewing the above events.
The fallout of this week’s developments, as ever, continue into the next, and with so many questions left unanswered, here are some brand new video spoilers.
Sunday December 31
Daisy, Glenda and Gemma enter the Rovers for the first time in months, determined to get the pub up and running for the New Year. Gemma, having seen the state of the place, worries that they’ve bit off more than they can chew but Daisy is optimistic.
Daniel gets the shock of his life when he heads towards his flat to see a familiar face step foot out of a taxi nearby. Though it’s not revealed in the clip, the returnee is none other than his former flame Bethany Platt.
But just what brings Bethany back to Weatherfield? And will sparks fly for the former lovers?
Monday January 1
Adam screams for help, having been bundled into the back of a van with no idea who is to blame for the incident. The thugs responsible shut the door, leaving him yelling at the top of his lungs as they approach their boss.
It’s Damon, who is back on the cobbles after months and he’s out for revenge on Adam, who is to blame for his disappearance in the first place.
The question is: will Damon shed blood? Or can Adam escape this ordeal with his life?
