It was revealed when new soap boss Iain MacLeod took over that a huge stunt would rock the Street in March this year.
The death of a popular character has been confirmed, while the identity of the unlucky victim remains a mystery.
Taking to Twitter , fans believe they have rumbled who it is though, and are fearing Rana will die in the factory accident.
The Underworld factory is set to collapse in shocking scenes
One fan commented: “Is the factory roof going to fall on Rana?!”
Another said: “It’s probably gonna be either Kate or Rana who get killed in the factory.”
Another fan pointed out that Rana is a nurse, so could her efforts to save those in danger leave her own life in the balance?
It’s rumoured Rana will die on her wedding day to Kate
They said: “Maybe she dies in Underworld as she goes in to help people from the roof collapse.”
While there’s nothing to say the two storylines are connected, Kate’s sister Carla does part own the factory so could the happy couple be inside when it all comes crashing down?
Whatever happens, both the roof collapse, which turns out to be deliberate, and Rana’s exit are bound to leave viewers heartbroken.
Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
