Coronation Street fans were left reeling after the long-running abduction story came to a dramatic conclusion.

Months after it was revealed villain Pat Phelan (Connor McIntyre) had been keeping Andy Carver (Oliver Farnworth) prisoner in his basement, his captive met a tragic end.

Warning! Massive Spoilers Alert!

In a violent and shocking showdown, Phelan forced Carver to shoot fellow captive Vinny Ashford (Ian Kelsey) in a deserted mill before Phelan turned the gun on Carver, as viewers compared the soap to a horror film.
He then dumped their bodies in a lake.

Andy is told that he will be freed if he kills Vinny

Viewers took to social media in their droves to  compare the graphic scenes to those in the Saw series of horror movies.

One wrote: "Who needs Saw when you've got Pat Phelan on #corrie" as another said: "Jigsaw Phelan's watched too many Saw movies. "

Another wrote: "Am I watching Corrie or 'Saw'?" as one more said: "This is like Saw with the 2 guys stuck in the grotty bathroom and Phelan is Jigsaw!"

Another fan wrote: "Corrie is more like a horror movie tonight" as another hailed Phelan as "Corrie's number 1 villain".

You can next catch Corrie on Monday at 7.30pm on TV3 and ITV.
