Corrie's Bernie to try and kill Kell after finding proof he abused her son as a child
Coronation Street's Bernie Winter is reportedly going to try and kill Kel Hinchley after finding proof he abused her son, Paul, when he was a child.
Kel arrived in Weatherfield in September, as Corrie began to explore a historic sexual abuse storyline.
Viewers discovered that Paul Foreman had been groomed and sexually abused by Kel - who had been his stepfather when he was a teenager.
According to The Sun, Paul decides to tell his mum what happened when he was younger. And while Bernie refuses to believe him at first, she soon finds evidence that leads her to the horrifying truth.
An insider told the publication that "all hell will break loose" when the truth comes out.
"With Paul's words ringing in her ears she starts to search for anything that will put her mind at rest and discovers a box of pictures that Kel he took of Paul.
"Bernie realises immediately Paul was telling the truth and she flies into a fury.
"She goes into a violent rage and tries and kill Kel by beating him up with a stool for what he has done to her son and family.
"They're going to be explosive scenes that show what Jane can do with such big stories."
It comes as Joe Alessi, who plays Kel, recently said his time on the show was "finite" and that he would never be a regular on Corrie.
He told Lorraine:
"I don't know, I have no idea [how long he will be in Weatherfield for].
"The character I'm playing, it's finite. I'm never going to be a regular on Coronation Street, that's for sure. My role will come to an end at some point."
