Corrie releases first look at huge explosion as at least one death confirmed

Coronation Street has released shocking first-look images of a huge explosion which is set to rock the cobbles.

As super soap week hits our TV screens next week, viewers are in store for an extravaganza of stunts and spectacles, as Debbie Webster prepares to launch her Halloween House of Horrors.

Elsewhere, Abi Franklin is attempting to take revenge on killer Corey as she acquires a gun, while drug lord Harvey escapes from a prison van on its way to hospital in order to exact revenge on the Battersbys.

Johnny and Jenny Connor find themselves tumbling down the Platts' sinkhole and fighting for their lives – and their marriage.

And for Dev, Aadi and Asha Alahan, a family road-trip takes a turn for the worst as Harvey's prison van collides with their car, leaving Dev frantically attempting to decide which of his kids to save from the car.

He opts for an unconscious Asha, leaving Aadi in the car.

But the vehicle soon bursts into a fireball of flames, with first-look photographs revealing the extent of the damage.

Dev, cast in shadow, can be seen being thrown back from the force of the explosion as flames erupt in a mushroom cloud.

Thankfully Asha seems to be a fair distance away from the car when the explosion hits, but poor Aadi is nowhere to be seen.

Speaking about filming the explosion scene, Asha star Tanisha Gorey revealed to Daily Star: "Because of the country road, everyone had to sneak into the woods so you couldn't be seen on camera, but the explosion was insane.

"It was so loud. I just didn't expect anything like that – I've obviously never seen anything like that in real life before."

She added: "It was 100 percent like a movie set. There were just so many new things – a drone camera, all these cool gadgets, and a little fake moon up in the sky.

"I felt like a celebrity, I'll admit."

While Adam Hussain, who plays Aadi, added: "The car crash was so intense – the back of the car just goes flying off."

But will Aadi make it out alive?

One thing's for certain – at least one character won't, as Corrie boss Iain MacLeod said: "It's got loads of twists in it. It’s got some stuff in there which I think you’ll never see coming – which is, for my money, always the best thing in a soap or in any drama.

"Stuff that makes you go, 'What have they just done?' – and there’s lots of that in there."

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV.
