Will Michelle (Kym Marsh) be the one to take down drug dealer Rich (Fraser Ayres) on “Coronation Street?” Explosive show spoilers reveal that the angry lady goes after the nasty man in a way that no cop dares!
Rich is not only a reviled drug dealer on the cobbles, he’s the guy who stabbed one of Wetherfield’s own in the bistro. Ever since stabbing Chesney (Sam Aston), Rich has had a target on his back, and it seems only a matter of time before he gets his comeuppance.
But who thought it would be a vicious Michelle that neutralizes the cad? Nonetheless, dramatic pictures from the ITV sudser show the hot-headed barmaid Michelle having to be restrained by Maria (Samia Longchambon) and Kate Connor (Faye Brookes) when she sets eyes on Rich.
Lucky for Rich, before Michelle can inflict her damage someone stops her. The bad news is that Robert Preston (Tristan Gemmill) then proceeds to take a shot at Rich himself. It looks like “Wild Kingdom,” has come to the cobbles when the two men square off!
Very vivid close-up shots from the filming show a livid Robert with his hands all over Rich, at one point seeming to try and choke the life out of him. Burly Robert definitely seems to have the advantage over Rich who at one point throws up his hands as if in surrender to the angry mob. But who could blame them after what Chesney had to endure at Rich’s evil hands?
Newcomer Rich has stirred up plenty of trouble since his arrival, and he recently swore revenge at Robert for setting him up in a police sting. Now that the two men have gone at each other in a very public setting, it seems the stakes have ratcheted up a notch or three.
Clearly Rich has become a marked man; Is it only a matter of time before there is a major whodunit on the cobbles?
