Coronation Street bosses wanted Callum Logan murder to drag out

'Coronation Street' bosses had initially planned for the murder of Callum Logan to go undiscovered for five years.

The vicious bad boy's life came to a gruesome end last year when his ex-girlfriend Kylie Platt (Paula Lane) clobbered him over the head when she caught him trying to attack her sister-in-law Sarah-Louise Platt (Tina O'Brien).

Kylie and her husband David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) buried his lifeless body down a manhole at the annexe of their home but, although the guilty duo were initially thought they were going to get away with their chilling crime, it looks like the consequences of their actions have come back to bite.

Jack explained to the Radio Times magazine: "We originally got told that the body wouldn't be discovered for five years. But there's more drama in having them find the corpse."

However, the 28-year-old star is pleased the truth of Callum's death is set to unfold in coming weeks because he's looking forward to getting stuck in to the drama.

He said: "The story had run its course with us looking shifty. We'd drawn it out for a few months, so why wait another four years? We might as well just discover the body."

The outcome of the grizzly crime is yet to be revealed but it's thought Kylie will come unstuck when detectives plough in considering Paula's decision to bow out of the show.

The 30-year-old beauty announced she was leaving the programme earlier this year in order to have her second child and spend time with her family.
