Coronation Street serial killer Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce) is showing no signs of stopping his murderous rampages by the looks of these exclusive pictures.

But will Tim be the next victim in Corrie or will he be able to summon help and stop Stephen making his escape away? Time is ticking for the killer after months of lies and crimes finally catch up with him.

He is cornered by Carla Connor (Alison King) who has managed to work out his crimes. Over the past year, Stephen has claimed the lives of three cobbles residents and the walls are closing in after the body of Leo Thompkins, his first victim, was discovered.

He went on to murder Leo's dad, Teddy Thompkins (Grant Burgin), after he worked out that Stephen had killed his son. This was followed by businessman Rufus Donahue (Steve Meo), who discovered Stephen had been drugging Carla with LSD.

Next week, Carla is horrified when she opens a letter from the clinic confirming that there were traces of LSD in her hair sample. While the businesswoman immediately believes Rufus was the culprit, she realises the timing doesn't add up. Later, in the factory Carla grimaces as she takes a sip of a coffee made by Michael, who points out that normally Stephen or Sarah make the coffee.

Carla freezes as the truth dawns on her, and she drags Stephen into the office and tells him she knows he spiked her drinks with LSD. She declares that she's going to prove it before storming out. Carla then shares her suspicions about Stephen with DS Swain, but she’s frustrated when the police officer asserts that it’s mere speculation and she needs proper evidence.

While fans can't wait to watch the serial killer finally face comeuppance for his crimes, it appears others have developed a soft spot for the criminal. Speaking to Daily Star at the Inside Soap Awards, actor Todd revealed playing a serial killer has made him a sex symbol.

The 62-year-old has been bombarded with flirty comments since he started playing the evil character, saying: "I get a lot of messages from viewers. They’re from gay men and women. They are up for a bit of a bad boy, I guess. They often message me and say they want to speak to me directly.

"I try not to get too involved with that. I feel like one of those killers in prisons who gets letters from people falling in love with them." Despite some of the messages being strange, Todd admits he loves the attention.
