One of Coronation Street's biggest storylines has taken another dramatic turn following the grim discovery of a body. Coinciding with murderer Stephen Reid's return to the street in Tuesday night's episode, fans were eager to see how the development played out.
Ed and Ronnie's project appears to have been thrown into turmoil as the discovery is made. During the hour-long episode, Ed notices the digger driver looks troubled and hurries over.
Ronnie, arriving at the building site to see Ed talking to a uniformed Craig, looks into the hole where the digger has unearthed the dead body. Meanwhile, Stephen and Jenny return from their trip to Paris, both of them oblivious to the horrific events unfolding at the building site.

While excitable Corrie fans were glued to their screens as rumours of the discovery started to circulate around the street, they couldn't help but notice the leading role Craig Tinker played in the police investigation, in the latest episode.
Craig, who is now a police detective, explained to a frustrated Ed and Ronnie how he could not hurry along the investigation process, or given them an exact timeframe on when it might be completed. As tensions built, fans started to question's the soap's decision to 'promote' the character, saying they could not take it seriously.
