Tony Gordon’s world is about to come crashing down when he’s arrested on suspicion of murdering Liam Connor. Gasp!
It seems that as Tony’s desperately trying to keep a lid on his double life, Tony’s arrested at the factory. When he’s released pending further questioning, Tony knows he’s lost Maria and any chance he might’ve had of a life with her, so he decides to take action…
He nicks the keys to Roy’s Rolls and lets himself in. From the shadows Tony sees Roy heading off on a bat watching trip and he’s about to follow him – with a big knife in his hand – when Maria suddenly starts hammering on Roy and Hayley’s door demanding to know what’s going on. Hayley tells her about Tony’s confession to Roy which leaves Maria devastated.
Tony then goes after Roy and, finding him at the canal, Tony makes it clear he’s come seeking revenge. As Roy demands to know what he’s done to Hayley, he’s horrified to see the blood-stained knife. Believing that Tony’s killed Hayley, Roy lunges at him.
They fight, but a younger, fitter Tony easily overpowers Roy then throws him semi-conscious into the canal. As Roy struggles to stay afloat, Tony watches him slip beneath the water, which will leave us wondering if Tony’s killed again.
Meanwhile at the café, Hayley tells a distraught Maria they must call the police and report Roy missing. A frantic Hayley and Becky then head to the canal to search for Roy as Maria tells a stunned Michelle about her suspicions of Tony. Realising her own life could be in danger, Maria starts to panic that Tony could come back to hurt her and baby Liam.
But in the dark of night, Tony calmly walks into a police station and confesses to murder. As Tony’s then interviewed, he confesses to paying Jimmy to run over Liam out of jealousy, and admits to trying to kill Roy at the canal.
Maria’s shocked to hear Tony’s handed himself in and, needing some answers she heads to the station. As the police confirm her worst fears, Maria‘s horrified.
In the interview room, Tony pleads with her to believe that his feelings for her were genuine and that he’s tried to make amends for his evil deeds.
Michelle’s then got the job of telling Ryan that Tony had Liam killed. As he swears to get revenge, Michelle tries to calm him down but Ryan breaks down, claiming he’s going to live with his grandparents as he can’t bear to stay in Weatherfield any longer.
And as Maria sets about removing all traces of Tony from her life, Helen and Barry arrive on the street. Michelle explains to her parents that Liam had an affair with Carla and Tony had him killed out of revenge.
That’s not the end of the shocks because soon, Carla turns up too! More news on that as we get it!
