Coronation Street: Stephen kills Leo

Recently Leo started to become suspicious about Stephen after finding him sleeping in his car.

Stephen has been taking money from his wife Gabrielle‘s company and planned to get Audrey‘s house valued, as he has no money.

Last week Leo discovered that Stephen kissed his fiancée Jenny and was furious.

Tonight he started to do some digging and met up with the real estate agent that was booked to value Audrey’s house.

He later saw Stephen and Gabrielle together and decided to follow them.

After overhearing a conversation between Stephen and Gabrielle, Leo realised that Stephen planned to take the equity from Audrey’s house to pay his wife back.

Leo confronted Stephen on the factory gantry and threatened to call Audrey.

As they got into a fight, Stephen hit Leo.

Leo smacked his head on the metal railing. Stephen soon shoved Leo off the side and he fell into a big metal bin.

Stephen went to check on him but it was clear Leo was dead.

Later Stephen put Leo’s body in the back of a van. But will this be his last kill?

Coronation Street: Will Stephen kill again?

Actor Todd Boyce was asked if people should be worried about crossing Stephen now he’s killed once.

Speaking to Entertainment Daily and other media, Todd joked: “In the greenroom I’m offered a lot of cups of tea by actors who want to find out how long I’m going to be doing this show and how many people I’m going to kill.

“They offer me their seat. No it’s a running joke.

He continued: “I don’t know, I’m not sure. I think he’s just capable of killing more people and going on and doing that.”

But if Stephen were to kill again, who would he go after?
