Shocking: Fiz is outraged as she catches her husband John Stape digging up the dead body of Colin Fishwick at Underworld
Only recently, viewers have seen John bury Colin Fishwick”s body underneath the Underworld factory, kill Charlotte Hoyle and also contribute towards the death of Joy Fishwick.
Now the truth finally comes out in a double-bill of the soap to be screened tonight on ITV1.
Just this week, John resorted to kidnapping his brother-in-law Chesney (Sam Aston) and Charlotte”s parents as they edged dangerously close to exposing his true colours.
Confrontation: Psycho killer Stape finally gets his comeuppance in dramatic scenes after months of deception
Stape (Graeme Hawley) hid Colin”s body in the floor at Underworld after he died from a heart attack and, when it was then filled in with concrete, he thought he”d never be caught.
But builder Owen Armstrong has been digging the floor up, which will inevitably lead to the killer having to answer some pretty sticky questions.
To stop the body being found he got a job with Owen”s firm and tried every trick in the book to stop work commencing to no avail.
Time”s up: John is caught red-handed as he tires to cover up his evil deeds
In desperate fear of being rumbled he heads to Underworld, digs up the floor and tries to move the body before anyone can find him.
However, a suspicious Fiz (Jennie McAlpine) follows him to the underwear factory and is confronted with the full horror of her husband”s evil as she finds him with Colin”s body.
It”s a moment that preceeds a week of explosive drama in the soap as Fiz”s life is changed forever.
Speaking of the shock moment, Jennie McAlpine – who plays Fiz – said: “It”s definitely not what Fiz expected to see!
“She can”t compute what”s happened, she just sees John with this body and she doesn”t know who it is. It”s the most horrific thing and she can”t take in what she”s faced with.”
John had been plotting to escape Coronation Street with Fiz and their baby, ironically named Hope.
He explained to his kidnapping victims that he”d call the police when he and his wife were a safe distance away.
Of course, tonight”s events throw that plan out of the window – and what will become of the killer now Fiz has found him out
The Coronation Street double-bill screens tonight at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
