The life of Chesney Brown looks set to be left on the line when he's the victim of a shock stabbing in an upcoming episode of Coronation Street.
Press reports have emerged that thugs will break into the Bistro and that Ches will get caught up in the mayhem when he's stabbed in the neck with a broken bottle.
Coronation Street does not comment on storyline leaks, but today's Sun has reported that Michelle, Adam and Daniel will all fight to keep Chesney alive in the wake of the assault.
Said a show insider: “A gang of thugs try to rob the Bistro. They smash up the place and then Chesney gets in the way. One stabs him in the neck with a broken bottle. Michelle is seen screaming while Daniel and Adam rush to Chesney’s side, trying to keep him awake.
“But he is slipping in and out of consciousness. And the big cliffhanger will be whether he survives the attack or not."
Actor Sam Aston has been a staple part of the soap since 2003, but could this latest plotline end his time on the Street?
