Coronation Street's House of Horror event turns into a real-life nightmare in dramatic scenes set to air next week.
Debbie Webster makes last minute preparations for the street part and the drayman drops barrels of beer by the beer tent.
Nobody notices that as each barrel lands, a tiny amount of earth dislodges itself into the Platts’ sinkhole.
The music suddenly cuts out at the event as a panicked Ryan Connor peers out of the tent through the rain.
He and Debbie realise the generator has gone and there is a hole in the ground where it one stood.
Ryan shows Leo the hole where the generator was. Leo tells David and Shona that he suspects it’s linked to the sinkhole in their garden and they need to evacuate the area.
In the beer tent, Ryan calls everyone to attention and announces that they need to leave. Debbie’s furious and assures everyone that there’s nothing to worry about.
As panic ensues Shona watches in horror as Jenny searches for Johnny only to be swallowed up by the ground.
Ignoring Shona’s words of warning, Johnny edges himself into the sinkhole, determined to rescue Jenny.
In the sewer, Johnny hears Jenny’s cries for help and battles his way through the water towards her.
As the water continues to rise, Johnny assures Jenny that it’s only a matter of time before someone rescues them.
Johnny and Jenny scream for help clinging to the ladder.
On the street, David and Shona help Leo prise open the manhole cover outside the factory.
To David’s horror, Shona takes matters into her own hands and grabbing a rope, disappears down the manhole in search of Johnny and Jenny.
Will any of them get out alive?
