The drama continued in Coronation Street as a terrible road accident resulted in the worst fears for the Platts: the body of Callum Logan (played by Sean Ward) is about to be discovered.
David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) his wife Kylie (Paula Lane) and sister Sarah-Louise (Tina O'Brien) are going to have to show nerves of steel to the Corrie residents now.
Meanwhile, Carla Tilsley, played by departing actress Alison King, sat in her wedding dress looking as forlorn as Charles Dickens character Miss Havisham from Great Expectations.
She married Nick Tilsley (Ben Price), but there was to be no happy ever after: he dumped Carla following the revelation that she had been unfaithful.
And Nick's mother Gail made it clear how she felt about it all by giving Carla a huge slap.
Cathy Matthews (Melanie Hill) proposed to fan favourite Roy Cropper (David Neilson), only to be knocked down by Carla moments later. Phew!
Viewers watching the events unfold could not help sharing their thoughts on Twitter.
Corrie's getting tense!

Someone saw the funny side
Think the wedding in #Corrie went quite well actually. 1 killed, 2 car crashes, 2 marriage break ups, 1 body found & a broken action man!

They did a cowboy job filling that hole in, if you buried a body underground you would use good quality concert to fill in a hole #corrie
