We’re already stocking up on tissues ahead of tonight’s episode of Coronation Street.
Paula Lane’s character is being killed off after six years on the cobbles, in what looks set to be one of the most emotional goodbyes in Corrie history.
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.’
We’ve now been given a glimpse of Kylie’s final moments – and we can totally see why Paula and Jack, 28, were so affected.
The first image shows a frantic-looking David running towards his dying wife, who’s lying in the middle of the road.
In the second picture, he’s cradling her in his arms. However, we can’t see her face, and we still have no idea how she ends up in the street.
Fans have been discussing a few theories on Twitter. Some reckon it could have something to do with Callum Logan, who Kylie was seen murdering on last year’s live episode.
Others think she may end up getting caught up with niece Bethany Platt’s evil bullies.
Hmmm. Whatever the case, it’s going to be heartbreaking…
