Coronation Street slashes factory murder suspect list to just these THREE

Nick, Gary and Robert are the remaining suspects

Coronation Street has revealed that Nick Tilsley, Gary Windass, and Robert Preston are the three suspects left for the fatal roof collapse.

Originally there were six suspects for the Underworld roof collapse – which killed Rana – with Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne), Carla Connor (Alison King) and Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni) also on the shortlist.

But they’ve now been cleared and we know the devilish criminal is either Nick, Gary or Robert.

Teasing next week’s dramatic late night episodes, the official Corrie site said that: “The Saboteur will be revealed”.

The show continued: “Are you ready to discover the identity of the shadowy figure who sabotaged the roof of Underworld, killing Rana?

“Next week it will be revealed whether it’s Gary (Mikey North), Nick (Ben Price) or Robert (Tristan Gemmill) who has been living with the guilt of this deadly secret. Will someone get away with murder?”

A trailer for next week’s “unmissable episodes” seems to suggest that Nick is the prime suspect, as he features heavily in it.

“Lying, cheating, murder – who knows what you’re capable of,” Leanne tells him.

We also see Gary appearing to be held hostage by Rick Neelan (Greg Wood). Could Gary be doomed?

Coronation Street will next week go out at the later time of 9pm.
