Barmaid Tina McIntyre lies motionless on Coronation Street's famous cobbles after plunging from the balcony of the builder's yard flat following a dramatic showdown in a new image released today.
McIntyre - played by Michelle Keegan - will be given some home truths by one of four possible suspects before she crashes to the street below on May 27th.
Her brutal end launches a hunt which will grip Weatherfield.
In the build-up to the death, viewers of the ITV soap will have had the chance to watch four alternative showdowns between her and potential killers - Peter Barlow, Carla Barlow, Rob Donovan and Tracy Barlow - which are being made available on the official Coronation Street website, itv.com/coronationstreet.
ITV, who have released the photograph, say there will be a "shocking twist" on Wednesday, the night after her death plunge, just as the police begin their efforts to track down who is responsible.
