Picture exclusive: This is the moment innocent Maria Connor faced a dangerous John Stape, as a shocking week on Corrie continued.
After Fiz found out the startling truth about John's double life, and the extent to which he'd go to get what he wants, Maria looked to be in danger until Kirk arrived in the nick of time. But now with John on the run, can Fiz and baby Hope ever be truely safe?
Watch Corrie on Wednesday 1st June at 9pm to see what happens next!
Graeme Hawley, aka John Stape, reveals: "There is an ending (to the week) but I couldn't possibly tell you what that is. It all blows open, there is an absolute meltdown.
"John is a very unlucky. The reason why the storyline works is because at the centre of it you have this incredibly boring, normal character really, you wouldn't look twice at him, but you put him into the most unlikely situation you can imagine. That's drama."
One of John's prisoners, Chesney, also faces a dramatic race-against-the-clock moment, involving his girlfriend Katy's unborn baby.
Sam Aston, who plays Chesney, says: "You'll see if I manage to get out in time to stop Katy from going ahead with the abortion.
"Chesney has always suspected John, just look at him! He doesn't look right. He was slowly getting onto him, but before he could reveal it, he was locked up.
"John never means to get into trouble he just finds it. No matter how much he tried to get out, he just gets deeper and deeper. It all goes a bit sinister this week though."
Elsewhere, Elizabeth Tan, who plays Xin reveals tensions are reaching a climax for the love triangle between her character, Tina and Graeme.
She says: "It's been very complicated, she's best mates with Tina, who has been so good to her. Her parents have passed away when she was quite young and now she has Graeme, who is so sweet to her, and she just can't help but fall in love with him.
"She's thinking to herself she doesn't want to hurt Tina, she has tried to make space for them, but also the sham marriage that she is in makes it difficult to get out."
