Coronation Street has cheekily planted a seed for viewers as it prepares for a mega week of action.

Details are being kept under wraps by bosses at the ITV soap.

But what we do know is that a disaster will strike – one on such a scale it will rival the famous tram crash that shook Weatherfield in 2010.

The series of episodes are set to air over one week, often dubbed ‘Super Soap Week’.

And fans already think that this will centre around Debbie Webster’s Horror Nation Street plans.

The Bistro boss mentioned her plans in Wednesday night’s double helping of Corrie.

Debbie, played by Sue Devaney, was seen telling the Platt’s about her Halloween-inspired event.

“These are for the big extravaganza we’re doing,” she said offering them a leaflet.

“It’ called Horror Nation Street. It’s at the Brewery, it’s a pop-up.

“We’ll have lots of lovely food and a DJ. We’re hoping to run it for a couple of weeks build-up to Halloween.”

And Debbie made a second reference while talking to Kevin and Jack Webster.



Debbie had her posters in hand ready to shout about her event

She told her nephew as Kev grunted about going trick or treating: “This year will be different.

“You can come to Horror Nation Street.

“It will be fabulous. We’ll have a bleeding heart fondue, sort of like a chocolate fountain but red.”

Coronation Street has also shared a first-look at the poster, with a date set for October 18.

And the mere mention has got fans wondering.

“Which past baddie is going to show up I wonder??” one asked.

Another said: “Well that’s not going to end well!!!”

“Horror Nation Street Extravaganza… This will obviously pass off without a single hitch, right? #Corrie,” a third predicted.

A fourth added “I got a feeling this is stunt week.”

Others actually wish it was real.

“Would love to be able to go to this,” one fan said.

Another agreed: “Aww i wish this event was real otherwise i would go.”

“I wanna come,” a third echoed.

But they soon won’t if what has been teased is anything to go by.



There’s set to be more drama with the sinkhole

Actress Sally Carman, who plays Abi Franklin, told the Mirror at the National Television Awards: “It’s going to be so big it will rival the tram crash. You’re going to have your socks blown off.”

And Corrie boss Iain Macleod added: “We don’t have Chekhov’s gun in our stories but we do have Chekhov’s sinkhole,” he explained.

“We’ve tried to look at the last 12 months and the limited way in which all soaps have been forced to tell their stories, and try to subvert that and go ‘we’re back.’

“It’s going to be really huge – there’s loads of emotion, there’s loads of big spectacle – it’s going to be cinematic.”
