Corrie Christmas storylines revealed
We are now less than 100 days away from Christmas, and already we are starting to get some serious hints about major soap plotlines.
According to Closer Magazine, there will be stacks of drama in Weatherfield this festive season.
As always, returning characters will provide much of the excitement.
The return of Toyah Battersby after 13 years is expected to create some scenes, especially with sister Leanne.
But fans can expect much more than that.
OK Magazine spoke to a Coronation Street spokesperson who hints at an 'explosion' over Sharif Nazir's affair.
Another plotline revealed by the source was Bethany Platt's crush on Gary Windass, which threatens to spill over to a dangerous obsession.
And the love between Aidan Connor and Maria Connor is also said to be central to the Christmas episodes.
Caz Hammond is reported to be ready to meddle in the affair as her feelings for Maria grow while Aidan's girlfriend and Maria's friend Eva Price will also be involved in the stoty.
We expect this four-way love tangle to be the centrepiece of the end of year bonanza of shows.
