It’s only a few short hours until Kylie Platt meets her end on Coronation Street.
Paula Lane’s character is set to be killed off on Friday’s episode, in what’s set to be one explosive death scene.
The 30-year-old actress said last week: ‘I’m not just saying this because I’m involved, but I don’t think I’ve ever read an ending like it.
‘It’s almost not Corrie, if you know what I mean, it’s very different. It’s something that’s never been done in soap before and I think the audience are going to get a real sense of shock and surprise.’
Paula’s on-screen husband Jack P Shepherd has also opened up about her exit, revealing on This Morning: ‘[The scripts] are very harrowing and very emotional.
‘I read them and I’ve never read any scenes before and cried unless I was reading them and I was meant to be crying. [So Kylie’s death scenes were the first time I’ve cried at a script].
‘Filming the scenes when she does die, me and Paula were crying all the way through and we physically couldn’t stop. They’re so harrowing.’
Crikey. So how does Kylie pop her clogs? Well, bosses are keeping things firmly under wraps, but there are a few fan theories flying around on Twitter.
For a while, fans reckoned it could have something to do with Callum Logan, who Kylie was responsible for murdering in last year’s live episode.

But after Kylie discovered that bullies were continuing to harass her niece Bethany on last night’s show, some thought they’d worked out where the plot was heading.
One Tweeted: ‘I think Bethany’s bullies are going to kill Kylie #Corrie,’ while another speculated: ‘I think Kylie will get whacked over the head confronting Bethany’s bullies in Corrie.’
Others went one step further, with one (pretty heartbreaking) Tweet reading: ‘Bethany to defend herself with a knife against the bullies and get Kylie by mistake?’
Eep. We guess we’ll just have to wait and see…
