Coronation Street spoilers: Bosses reveal these characters WON'T die in shock factory roof collapse

Coronation Street factory collapse suspects

Coronation Street fans are in for a very dramatic evening on Monday as one of the soaps major characters is set to be killed off when the Underworld roof collapses.

And while ITV bosses are keeping tight-lipped about who has already spent their last days on the cobbles, it seems as though there's another character we can rule out.

In a sneak preview post shared on Coronation Street's official Twitter account, Shona Ramsey can be seen working in Roy's Rolls.

So, unless she's come back from the dead to serve bacon butties, the character (Julia Goulding), seemingly survives the horror factory disaster.

The likes of Peter Barlow and Daniel Osbourne also manage to come out unscathed as they can be seen in the sneak-peek photos as well.

This week will see the dramatic climax as the Underworld roof comes crashing down at the hands of a mystery 'villain' which sparks a huge 'whodunit' storyline.

Recent teaser photos for the upcoming episodes reveal Sally Metcalfe could be in danger as she can be seen lying unconscious, trapped under the falling debris.

Tim Metcalfe, Abi and Tyrone are also at risk after they push their way into the factory to help before emergency services arrive.

Meanwhile, it's also been revealed that Carla Connor (Alison King) manages to come out of the factory alive, with show boss Iain MacLeod recently teasing a special mental-health episode for the business owner in the aftermath of the collapse.

Speaking at a press event, producer Iain MacLeod explained: "Our viewers will know the factory roof collapse is a whodunit quite early in the story, but our characters won't. Somebody operating in the shadows has done this thing.

"So the early stages of this story will see Carla as a massive pariah. At the beginning, the roof collapse seems to emerge from a workaholism story for Carla. She determines that her life's priority is work and being a professional woman. She wants to focus on the factory and Aidan's legacy.

"That drives Carla into making some mistakes, that will lead to the factory falling in basically! She alienates a lot of people. First it will look like an accident, then we'll start to reveal that it's not."

He added: "This factory collapse story has lots of unexpected off-shoots into areas that give our amazing cast a chance to show off their acting chops."

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
