Coronation Street fans ‘work out’ Hope murder twist

With Hope holding the evidence of Lauren’s ‘murder’ in her hands, fans have now been left worrying for the young child’s life. They think that Joel may attempt to silence her by making her his next victim.

One fan said: “Is Joel gonna have to kill Hope now? Good luck as she’s the spawn of Satan. Why did he take the necklace anyway, dummy?”

Another person added: “Dee-Dee needs her thinking head on very quickly. A receipt for very expensive jewellery fell out of his wallet he told her was for his daughter’s birthday. Hope found the necklace in his car. Hope and Dee-Dee are now in danger.”

A third viewer finished: “Joel will have to kill Hope now as she’s the only one who knows about the necklace and could send him to prison.”
