Coronation Street: Hope Stape’s revenge plan is put into action

Later on, Hope was horrified when she discovered that her new pet’s cage was open before discovering its lifeless body as Peanut lay watching from his basket.

In scenes set to air next week, viewers are about to see things take a turn when Hope vows to avenge Cilla.

Confiding in her friend Sam Blakeman (Jude Riordan) about her plan, she asks if he’ll help bring it to fruition.

Later on, in the factory, Beth apologises to Fiz over the pet’s death but enrages her when she compares Cilla to a posh rat.
