Coronation Street villain Pat Phelan was seen returning to Weatherfield to the delight of viewers.
The murderer, portrayed by Connor McIntyre, secretly tormented wife Eileen in Friday night’s episode as she suffered online trolling and damage to her car.
Towards the end of the episode an unidentified character wearing Phelan’s trademark black leather gloves was seen putting a key under the flower pot.
During Wednesday night’s episode, Phelan watched Eileen on TV as she made an appeal to free Anna Windass.
Viewers were delighted as the much-loved villain appeared to make his return.
