Coronation Street: Ed to end his own life, a new fan theory predicts

Ed's family is furious with him

Recently on Coronation Street, Ed’s family has turned their back on him after a fire broke out at the Builder’s Yard in frightening scenes.

Michael was trapped in the fire, with Dee-Dee later finding out that he knew that the fire had started and had failed to put it out.

A new Corrie fan theory is now concerned that Ed might try to end his own life after seeing his world crumble apart.

Coronation Street: Ed’s lost everything

Ed’s gambling addiction has seen his debt increase quite rapidly as he struggles to pay off his bills.

The bailiffs then came up to the house to take away his belongings but Ed made them take from the Builder’s Yard instead.

A few days later, a fire broke out at the yard. Michael ended up getting trapped inside, with Ed rushing to save him.

Michael then started to accuse Ed of starting the fire to claim on the insurance. He then informed Aggie and James of his concerns as Aggie ended her marriage with Ed over the phone.

He even told Ed that he wished he’d died in the fire, soon regretting making this comment.

Dee-Dee later found out that whilst Ed didn’t start the fire, he didn’t do anything to stop it either. He’d know that the yard had caught on fire and had just let it spread.
