The storm clouds are gathering over Weatherfield and disaster is set to strike in what’s looking like the biggest stunt week we’ve witnessed in quite some time.
We’re talking a tumultuous storm, the collapse of the Platts’ sinkhole and a fiery car crash, as well as escaped convict Harvey Gaskell putting his revenge plan into action.
Read on for full Coronation Street spoilers for the week of the 18-22 October 2021.
Harvey takes Leanne prisoner
Conniving Harvey will be seen deliberately injuring himself in prison and demanding to be taken to hospital. But the prison van taking him there will collide with the car containing the Alahans, who have just set off on holiday.
Harvey then pulls himself out of the crashed vehicle in the torrential van, steals Kev’s pick-up truck and makes his way over to the Bistro on the Street, where he comes face to face with Leanne. As she tries to escape, he ends up gagging her and binding her hands together with gaffer tape.

But just as Leanne makes a desperate attempt to escape, the ground opens up beneath them. Who will fall into the water below?
Crash horror for Dev, Asha and Aadi
OK, so back to the Alahans, who have had their holiday trip halted by the prison van containing Harvey, which has crashed into their car on a country road.
In the immediate aftermath, Dev will be forced to make the gut-wrenching decision of which child he removes from the wreck of the burning vehicle. Believing Asha to be in more danger, he goes to her aid and drags her away from the car just before it explodes.

The emergency services then arrive at the crash site, but will they be time to save Aadi?
Crisis at the House of Horrors
So why, you may ask, are so many residents involved when the Platts’ sinkhole collapses back on the Street?
Well, the answer can be found in the House of Horrors event being organised by Debbie. As the drayman drops bottles of beer off for the celebration in Monday’s episodes, nobody notices that, as each barrel lands, a tiny amount of earth dislodges in the Platts’ garden.
But, later on, as the music suddenly cuts out and a panicked Ryan peers out through the tent into the rain, he and Debbie realise that there is a hole in the ground where the generator once stood.
Ryan quickly announces that everyone now needs to leave, despite Debbie’s assurances that there’s nothing to worry about. But panic ensues and lives are soon put in danger…
Can Johnny save Jenny?
Two people who might not live to see next week are Rovers landlady Jenny and her ex-husband Johnny, who find themselves in big danger thanks to the sinkhole catastrophe.
What we’ll see is Jenny left stunned after discovering that Johnny is about to leave town for Bali. But just as she’s telling him in the beer tent that she hopes he isn’t leaving because of her, the ground opens up and swallows her!
Ignoring Shona’s words of warning, Johnny lowers himself into the sinkhole, determined to get to Jenny. But with the water levels rising and the Connors left screaming for help, Shona takes it upon herself to stage a rescue. But will any of them get out alive?
Abi v Corey
An armed Abi wants to get revenge on Corey, but with everyone dressed in Halloween masks, her search initially proves to be quite tricky.
But eventually, she confronts him – yet just as she’s about to pull the trigger on the gun she’s procured, the ground gives way. Abi and Corey then find themselves trapped in a Victorian sewer, with the gun lying midway between them.
Fans can expect a tense face-off, as well as Roy getting involved when a deluge of water in the sewer threatens to sweep away both Corey and Abi…
