But Corrie boss Iain Macleod previously revealed a blast from the past could be coming for Rita – and they would be tied into Harvey’s drugs empire.

Viewers know Harvey has been forcing Simon Barlow and Leanne Battersby to deal drugs for him.

He will terrorise the pair as Leanne mounts a desperate bid to free her family from him.

But could Harvey call in Sharon to do his dirty work too?

Or could she even be the big boss of the drugs empire.

Iain previously teased: "The thing that's exciting me the most is the Leanne story, which I know I've been a bit vague about. 

"I think it's incredibly exciting. It will also draw in Rita at a certain point – and there'll be a blast from the past for Rita that emerges as a result of the story.

"I really think this story will end up in the place where you least expect it when you start watching it in the New Year."

He also promised that it would become a huge “thriller” of a storyline. 

"We've come up with something that starts quite small, but ends up turning into this colossal, thriller-ish, high-octane piece that will play out in the first six months of next year,” he added.

"We were quite keen to use Leanne's grief as a launch-pad into something exciting. I think we've achieved that, without feeling like we're doing a disservice to the Oliver story."
