Wednesday night’s episode saw his character Imran Habeeb die after being involved in a car accident with his wife Toyah (Georgia Taylor).
The couple was driving home from the police station, but they are not entirely sure how the accident happened.
As paramedics loaded Toyah into the back of an ambulance, Imran insisted on going with her but collapsed trying to get into the vehicle.
Paramedics were seen trying to revive him and did so for about 15 minutes, but Imran was later confirmed to be deceased.
Toyah’s cousin, Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson), was present when the doctor broke the news to her, and she admitted that she did not remember much about the accident.
Later, a policeman visited Toyah in the hospital to ask her some questions, much to Leanne’s annoyance.
“Do you remember hitting the scaffolding?” the officer asked, to which she replied, “No, I was driving down Scallo Street and the next thing I remember is waking up in the ambulance.
“Imran wanted to come with me and then he collapsed, I saw it,” he said in flashback.
“What do you think must have happened?” The officer then asked Toyah, who seemed confused.
“Maybe the car skidded or I lost focus for a second,” she replied, but the cop was quick to shut down her theory.
“There were no tire marks,” he said, as Leanne blurted out, “So?”
“Which means that the car did not slow down at all,” he continued, before adding: “It indicates that the brakes were not applied.”
A worried Toyah replied, “I must have hit the brakes,” as the officer asked, “But you don’t remember doing it. Can you think of any reason the brakes wouldn’t have worked?”
Leanne’s mind immediately went to Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell), who had offered to fix Toyah’s car earlier that day when it wouldn’t start.
She also added Abi’s name to the mix as the officer reminded her that it was a “very serious accusation” as Toyah tried to wrap her head around the idea of Kevin tampering with the brakes.
However, some viewers tuning in at home actually think it was Toyah who caused the car accident.

Another said: “Wait. So big Kev fixed the car, does that mean it was Toyah’s fault #Corrie?”
A third viewer asked, “Toyah facing a dangerous driving death charge? #Corrie.”
And a fourth person posted: “Toyah crashed on purpose I bet. Hope we don’t have to wait months before they do flashbacks #Corrie.”
Another viewer tweeted: “#corrie hope Toyah caused the accident and she gets hit.”
