Coronation Street star Todd Boyce has revealed that his character Stephen Reid might be planning an “escape” as his controversial villain is expected to leave the show.
Todd spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk as he attended the red carpet at the Inside Soap Awards 2023 on Monday evening.
The American actor hinted that the end is in sight for serial killer Stephen Reid, who has so far murdered three people.
When asked about his exit storyline, Todd said: “It’s a lot of unmasking going on.
“It makes me feel very uncomfortable as an actor because he’s been getting under the radar all this time. Now the other characters are seeing for maybe what I am.

“It’s scary. He’s smart and I think he’s capable of escaping.”
Stephen’s exit is due to be aired in a highly dramatic storyline in October as his multiple murders come to light.
So far, he’s murdered Leo Thompkins, Teddy Thompkins and Rufus Donahue, but whether or not he will be caught remains to be seen.
According to Metro.co.uk, upcoming scenes have been filmed at a canal with police and Corrie locals gathering around to find a gruesome discovery.
Alongside his three murders, Stephen also tried to kill his wife Elaine by poisoning her and drugged Carla with LSD.
