Coronation Street star Alan Halsall has warned fans that they should expect harrowing scenes in the soap next week.

Warning: spoiler alert!

Viewers will see Halsall's character Tyrone assaulted once again by partner Kirsty (Natalie Gumede).

Halsall told What's on TV: "She hits him in her worst attack yet. Not only does she beat him, but also she kicks him when he falls on the floor.

"Then she wants him to apologise for the things he's done and, when he doesn't, she pulls his hair and screams at him. It puts him in a really dark place, physically and mentally."
