John Stape to kill Joy Fishwick?
'Coronation Street's John Stape (Graeme Hawley) will reportedly be involved in Joy Fishwick's (Doreen Mantle) death when she suffers a heart attack next year
John Stape will be connected to Joy Fishwick's death.
The 'Coronation Street' teacher - played by Graeme Hawley - will reportedly be involved when Joy (Doreen Mantle) suffers a suspected heart attack as she investigates the disappearance of her son Colin.
Earlier this year, John buried Colin's body in the factory after he collapsed and died when he confronted his old friend about stealing his identity to land a teaching job.
Next month, John will attack Charlotte Hoyle (Becky Hindley) - who knows the truth about Colin - with a hammer, though he tells doctors she was injured in the tram crash which is due to hit Weatherfield in the coming weeks.
The ruthless teacher then attempts to switch off her life support machine.
A source said: "John didn't start out by deliberately killing Colin.
"But now as his life threatens to unravel he goes to unbelievable lengths to stop his body being found. Viewers will see him murder Charlotte during the show's 50th anniversary week. When Joy asks questions, she is the next on his list. John makes it look like natural causes again. It's a while before anyone links him to the deaths."
With John's wife Fiz (Jennie McAlpine) is due to give birth to their baby next month, he is determined not to let anything ruin the life he has created for them.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "John is more determined than ever not to let his family down and get caught."
