Next week Ray meets up with Abi in the Rovers’ back yard and tells her he’s willing to confess to the assault on Faye so long as she deletes the video footage.

However Abi suddenly feels dizzy and collapses as Ray grabs her phone.

A furious Debbie barges into the bistro to confront Ray about the incriminating video Abi sent her but is horrified to see Abi sprawled on the floor.

As Debbie goes to call an ambulance, Ray swipes the phone from her hand and menacingly tells her she’s going to help him out of this mess.

Will Debbie let Abi die? 

Soap boss Iain MacLeod recently opened up to The Sun Online about what's in store for the trio in coming months – and it's certainly not going to disappoint.

He explained: "He [Ray] also becomes more desperate to get this building project over the line, because we discover he's got quite a lot riding on it. If it goes wrong, it could be curtains for him, very literally. 

"That brings Ray into conflict with his old nemesis Abi. There's some fantastic stuff there where Abi takes Ray on and her life is in a fair amount of jeopardy."

He went on to add: "That, in turn, draws in Kevin and Debbie – as they end up in Ray's crosshairs as well. 

“There's a really brilliant power struggle between Debbie and Ray, which has twists and turns – with literal life-or-death jeopardy. It's all really exciting. 

"I love the fact that this story started off with this guy who was on the periphery in the show.

"Ray just owned a hotel and worked with Michelle, but then we saw signs that he might be this Harvey Weinstein-type of character.”
