Coronation Street Tim death twist sealed after horrific Stephen showdown

Coronation Street fans are convinced that Tim Metcalfe is “faking his own death” following his horrific showdown with Stephen Reid.

Over the past few weeks,ITVfans have been gripped to the long-running soap desperately holding out for cobbles killer Stephen Reid to receive the cold hand of justice.

Since he joined the show in 2021, his character has taken the lives of Teddy and Leo Thompkins and his business associate Rufus – but he could have another death on his hands this week.

During Monday’s episode (October 9) Tim investigated into Stephen’s secrets and found Teddy Thompkins’ body hidden away in a local canal.

A horrified Tim sprang into action with the hope to expose Stephen as a killer, but the cold-hearted Canadian attacked him and knocked him unconscious. It didn’t take long before Tim is left fighting for his life when Stephen locked him in the boot of his car and doused the vehicle with petrol.

Viewers struggled to watch the devastating scenes play out before they took to social media to share their theories on Tim’s gruelling demise. One user penned: “Tim was playing dead and he got out when Stephen was distracted by the helicopter so when Stephen sets the car alight.

“We are supposed to think he is in there and then at the end week Tim will be in hospital under protection. Well that’s what I think #Corrie.” Another echoed: “I think Tim might be faking his death and escapte the boot in time #corrie.”
