Daniel (played by Rob Mallard) has slowly but surely been uncovering the truth about the Weatherfield villain and tonight Pat (Connor McIntyre) could be seen telling Andy Carver (Oliver Farnworth) that he had “found a replacement” before handing him a beer in the dingy cellar.
Coronation Street viewers have been speculating that young journalist and determined investigator Daniel could be Pat’s next victim for a while now, but should he fear for his life now that we know Pat is armed and ready to do absolutely anything to get what he wants?
Viewers immediately took to Twitter to express their shock over the whole thing, with one person screaming: “Daniel's going to get what's good for him, just beware of #patphelan.”

“Reckon there’s a twist and he holds both Andy and Daniel hostage!” a second suggested, while a third moaned: “Sorry but I will boycott #coronationstreet if Pat gets Daniel locked in the basement of that house. I love Daniel!”
Yet another added: “#coronationstreet Quite looking forward to Daniel getting chucked in the basement…”
“Where will it all end? He's got to be soap villain of the year……” a further social networker shared, as one commented: “Vinny/Adam/Daniel/That Lydia Woman. He's gonna need a bigger cellar!”

Tonight’s explosive instalment also saw Pat’s former business partner Vinny Ashford (Ian Kelsey) make a reappearance as he was seen calling his mum Mrs. McArdle to wish her a happy birthday.
Unaware that his mum was with someone, Vinny – whose real name was exposed as Harvey this evening – was left noticeably shocked as she told him: "Guess what, I’ve got a bit of news for you. There’s someone who wants to say hello to you," as Pat then appeared at her side.
Coronation Street continues Monday at 7.30pm on ITV.
