The makers of Coronation Street have said that more than one character could die in the soap's upcoming fire storyline.

Warning: spoiler alert!

In March, viewers will see the Rovers Return go up in flames with Sunita (Shobna Gulati) tipped to be a victim.

However, the soap's website now says: "Hot news from the Street: You may have read reports that the Rovers' fire will claim lives. We can now exclusively reveal that more than one person could die in the blaze which will take hold of the Rovers next month.

"Will landlady Stella fall victim to the fire? Could it be barmaid Tina? Fireman Paul? Bad guy Karl? Sunita? Gloria? Eva? Toy boy Jason? No one is safe from the killer flames..."
