Coronation Street’s Kylie Platt will die in the arms of her husband in Friday’s episode.

Paula has said her character’s death scene will be a first in the world of soap.

How Kylie dies is being kept strictly under wraps, but speculation on social media is centering around a bullying storyline.

In Wednesday’s Corrie instalment, David’s niece Bethany Platt (Lucy Fallon) told Kylie about her ordeal at the hands of a group of bullies. Fans jumped on the significance of this plot development.

Also, Kylie's guilt about killing her ex-boyfriend, drug dealer Callum Logan, has dominated her life and the return of his thug friend Macca to the Street may have some bearing on her exit.
