There's drama heading to Coronation Street as the mystery surrounding Jude Appleton's disappearance deepens...

Coronation Street star Paddy Wallace has revealed that there is yet another twist to come in Jude Appleton's storyline, and it sounds like fans are set to be shocked.

Jude has caused nothing but heartache for Mary recently

On Monday night's trip to Weatherfield, fans were heartbroken for Mary as she was lead to believe her son could be dead after the police asked her to identify a body at the mortuary.

It was Jude's estranged wife Angie who was given the grim task of seeing if the deceased was in fact Jude or someone else entirely, with Mary on tenterhooks as she waited outside for the moment of truth.

Thankfully for Mary - and Jude! - the body belonged to someone who just fitted Jude's description, and wasn't Mary's son after all.

But Angie's relief was short-lived when she discovered her bank account had been cleared out, and it didn't take her long to work out her lack of funds was down to her missing husband.

The body wasn't Jude - so where is he?

But while a fuming Angie got on the phone to the bank, Mary was thrilled that this was an indication that her boy was alive and well somewhere.

But as Mary's hunt for Jude continues, Paddy has revealed there's yet more twists and turns to come in the saga.

The actor told RSVP Live: "I can't tell you anything about Jude's final scenes, but I can confirm that you will see him again.

We'll be seeing Jude again, but will his return be a happy one?

"It's an interesting finale for me. Nothing is ever easy with Jude, it's certainly not simple - that's about as much as I can let slip, really."

When asked if this new twist in Jude's storyline is the last we will be seeing of the character, Paddy joked: "Well, if I told you that then you'd know too much!"

Does this mean the next time we see Jude he could be meeting an untimely end? Or is Mary's son set to break her heart in another way?

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