CORONATION Street fans think they’ve figured out who dies in the Underworld factory explosion after the Cobbles’ new super villain strikes.
Viewers have been scrutinising photos released from set showing the aftermath of the disaster.
Photos shared on Saturday reveal sombre Ken Barlow (Bill Roache) with his family and fans think they’ve deduced who survives the blast.
One viewer said: “YOUVE JUST RUINED THAT BETH KIRK & SINEAD SURVIVES THE FACTORY COLLAPSE AHHH”
Another added: “So judging by all saturday previews the factory deaths will not be “Carla, Nick, Gary, Izzy, Beth and Kirk”.”
The residents of Coronation Street will be left devastated by the fatal explosion at the Underworld knicker factory this month.
Photos from set reveal bunches of flowers laid outside the premises, pointing to there being a mystery death on the Cobbles.
Who has died and how the factory came to ruins is unclear however the building is seen in tatters, with the roof partially blown off and debris around the edges.
Corrie bosses are building up the factory collapse to be the soap event of the year and want to keep fans guessing who is responsible.
However, in upcoming scenes, the finger is firmly pointed at two long-running cobbles characters — Nick Tilsley and Gary Windass.
Nick, played by Ben Price, will be investigated for the collapse as police officers discover it was definitely sabotage and believe it was done as part of an insurance scam.
A TV source told The Sun’s Bizarre TV Column: “They have just filmed scenes where cops are asking questions about Nick, his whereabouts on the day and involvement in Underworld.
“When the victim’s family ask officers if they think Nick did it as part of a insurance scam, they say they are exploring all lines of enquiry, but keep it vague.
In recent weeks, Ben filmed scenes where Nick was furious with Carla for trying to oust him out the business, so it could be revenge.”

While Nick seems the obvious culprit responsible for the collapse — which will kill one major character — Gary (played by Mikey North) doesn’t help himself by going AWOL just after it happens.
The source added: “Gary disappears after the factory death.
“His girlfriend Sarah panics and admits he took a bribe from Peter Barlow to keep quiet about the roof being dodgy and Carla knowing about it. It seems from the scenes that he also has money worries which is stressing him out.”

David (Jack P Shepherd) is privy to his crimes after they decided to use the money to set up their new barber shop.
Jack says it is only a matter of time before his own dark streak bubbles to the surface and he turns against his brother.
