Viewers of Coronation Street were in for a shock this weekend after the shows Twitter account revealed up an upcoming spoiler waaaay before it has aired on TV.


If you're a fan who's keen on spoiler then you'll know that Gary Windass is bowing out of the show soon. It was previously reported that he would be killed off in a Ukraine explosion.

A source told The Sun: " Gary’s family are devastated after they’re told of his tragic death.

"Gary’s mum Anna is told that he was killed driving a diplomat whose car was ambushed, blown up and there are 'no survivors.'"

They added: "The storyline reaches a climatic point towards the end of this year – with Sarah once again left heartbroken."

Now, the ITV soap have tweeted a photo of Anna Windass after she finds out her son has died. They wrote alongside the spoiler: "EXCLUSIVE PICS: A devastated Sarah finally accepts the news of Gary's death, Luke confronts Rana and things get worse for Robert. 💔"

However, while some fans were left confused, other were quick to point out how they've ruined the upcoming storyline because Gary hasn't died onscreen yet.

Gary may be leaving the cobbles behind but we reckon there's going to be a lot of drama in store for his loved ones. Even though he's engaged to Sarah Platt he managed to get Nicola Rubinstein pregnant AND his onscreen mum Anna is leaving the show too.

How do you think Anna will leave the cobbles? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.
