Coronation Street is lining up a huge car crash this autumn and Michelle Connor’s son Ali Neeson will take centre stage.
But who else is involved in the mega-smash and will anyone die? Here’s what we know so far…
Where does Ali crash his car?
Recent pictures have shown Ali – who is Michelle’s biological son, although he didn’t grow up with her after a mix up at the hospital when he was born meaning she took home Ryan – covered in blood in the woods standing near his wrecked car.
The pap pictures – which were taken while the cast filmed on location – also showed a mystery passenger involved in the crash.
The unknown character appears to come off worse than Ali, actor James Burrows, as he appears to have part of the wreckage impaled in him.
Leanne Battersby, Ryan Connor and Michelle Connor are also involved as stars Jane Danson, Ryan Prescott and Kym Marsh were snapped on location covered in blood too.
Why does it happen?
According to a Corrie source, the smash comes after Ryan gets involved with some dangerous drug dealers.
The telly source revealed: “Michelle tries to cover up a death after a friend of Ryan’s named Cormack has a fatal drugs overdose in his flat.
“Ryan doesn’t do anything to help save his pal’s life because it was his pills he took.
Michelle attempts to get Sophie Webster, Brooke Vincent, and Ali to provide them with an alibi.
But Sophie retracts her statement landing Ryan in serious trouble.
It looks like Ryan has got in with the wrong crowd.
“It’s going to culminate in a high-speed crash which leaves him in a coma fighting for his life.”

Is Ali hiding a dark secret?
The crash pictures emerged after spoiler pics revealed Ali would be questioned by detective DS MacKinnon in the ITV soap.
The medic was seen being grilled by the scary copper who terrified Maria Connor when Caz Hammond tried to frame her for murder.
She was also in charge of the attempted murder of Ken Barlow in 2017, when he was found at the bottom of the stairs on No.1 after being walloped around the head.
The Sun Online revealed in August 2018 that Mackinnon would be returning to investigate another serious crime.
Could Ali be at the centre of this storyline?
Will anyone die in the car crash?
We’re not sure yet but Kym was recently seen filming some mysterious funeral scenes.
It’s been rumoured that new pub landlord Johnny Connor might suddenly die, but could Michelle actually be burying her son?
