Corrie Stephen’s death ‘confirmed’ as fans ‘work out’ Peter murder exit twist

Coronation Street fans are convinced Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) will murder Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce) before he leaves Weatherfield.

The Street Cars taxi driver has become Stephen's new enemy in recent weeks.

He couldn’t see what he gained by telling Lou Donahue that he stole her late husband Rufus Donohue’s watch a few weeks ago.

Fans of the ITV1 soap know that Stephen did this because Lou caught him seconds after he had stolen his tie pin, which was found by Rufus’ dead body.

The dodgy businessman covered by telling Lou that Peter had stolen Rufus’ watch, knowing that if he revealed the truth, it would increase the chance of people discovering that Rufus is only dead because of him.

Stephen is also responsible for the deaths of Leo (Joe Frost) and Teddy Thompkins (Grant Burgin).

Once Peter found out that Stephen had thrown him and Carla Connor (Alison King) under the bus, he told his partner that Stephen definitely had a hidden agenda.

Carla practically agreed with Peter, but said she couldn’t do anything about it as she needs him working at the factory until she’s back in a position to take over again.

In the Roy's Rolls, Peter clashed with Stephen and argued that his past actions make him look like a bit of a psychopath.

Stephen argued that he wasn’t while standing next to a poster that stated how drinking and driving will only end up shattering lives.

Could Peter relapse and start drinking again, get behind the wheel and end up killing Stephen?

As Peter grows more suspicious, fans are convinced he'll end up bumping off the serial killer.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "I really hope that Peter kills Stephen during Super Soap Week in October. #Corrie."

Another added: "Do you think Peter could be the person that kills Stephen during Super Soap Week leading to Peter's exit?"

Someone replied: "That would be the only way I would accept Peter leaving without Carla to be honest."

It has been reported that Peter actor Chris Gascyone will be leaving the soap later this year.

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at ITV1 and ITVX at 8pm
