Pat Phelan's Corrie Exit To Be Aired After Watershed Due To Gruesome Scenes

Pat Phelan's Corrie Exit To Be Aired After Watershed Due To Gruesome Scenes

Coronation Street has received its fair share of complaints over the last year over the gruesome nature of Pat Phelan's storyline.

The serial killer, played by Connor McIntyre, is said to leave the soap in such a bloody exit that it will have to be shown after the 9pm watershed to avoid complaints.

In the gruesome departure, Michelle Connor - played by Kym Marsh - is held hostage as Phelan returns for his final reign of terror on the cobbles.

His final scene will leave two other Corrie stars fighting for their lives after being shot by the maniac.

Connor McIntyre confessed that the toe-curling scenes could divide Corrie fans again, as he told The Sun: "It gives us a bit more of a licence to go further with the story."

"We've pushed the boundaries, we've pushed the edge of it so we'll have to see what the reaction is.."

Despite receiving record numbers of OFCOM complaints due to the story's graphic content, the soap pulled in its highest viewing figures in three years when Phelan's estranged wife Eileen pushed him off a pier last month.

Connor went on to say: "We've taken the audience on a couple of false starts. They deserve the pay-off and I think it's a decent one."
