Clues appear on how much-loved Corrie character may leave the soap
Pictures have emerged which seem to suggest how Les Dennis' character Michael Rodwell departs Weatherfield.
We've known since July that the 62-year old was leaving the cobbles but now it seems we may have had a hint about how he exits.
Pictures have emerged of Dennis filming scenes showing him breaking into a building site, presumably a sign that his feud with Pat Phelan has flared up again.
The images published online today also show Rodwell clutch his chest and slump towards the ground, seemingly suffering a heart attack.
Speculation is rife that this may be how he dies and leaves the show while others suggest that it could be the start of a final saga where the Rodwell and Phelan feud will come to an end.
Speaking at the time the news of his departure broke Dennis said: "As a lifelong fan of the show, [this] has been a dream come true. Becoming part of the ITV 'Coronation Street' family has been a wonderful experience and my decision to leave was a hard one.
"Earlier this year, thanks to 'Coronation Street' giving me a sabbatical from the show, I was thrilled to be able to produce and star in a sell-out production of Alan Bleasdale's 'Down the Dock Road' at The Royal Court Liverpool. I always knew that the time would come when I would want the freedom to do more projects, and now feels like the right time."
At the time he was tight-lipped about how he would depart the show.
He explained: "The talented team of writers and producers have come up with a very dramatic exit for Michael on the show which will be exciting to film. I'll treasure the two and a half years I have been part of such an iconic show and move on with very fond memories, so many lovely friends and colleagues and an ambition achieved."
