Is THIS how Pat Phelan's reign of terror on Coronation Street ends? © ITV Is THIS how Pat Phelan's reign of terror on Coronation Street ends? We never thought we'd see the end of it, but Pat Phelan's relentless reign of terror in Coronation Street is finally, officially, drawing to a close.

How exactly Phelan will get his comeuppance, though, is yet to be confirmed.

While we certainly have our theories, there are rumours that Phelan – played by Connor McIntyre – will meet a grisly end at the hands of his wife Eileen.

According to a report in The Sun, Eileen is set to channel her inner-Janine Butcher (EastEnders-Corrie crossover, anyone?) and push her husband off a cliff.

It's believed that Phelan's horrific past will catch up with him while the couple are away on holiday, only for Eileen to dish out the justice the nation's been waiting for. We hope, anyway.

Digital Spy reached out to ITV for further information, but they declined to comment.

"What I like about Phelan's downfall is that it's very much to do with Eileen. It's to do with her realising who she's married. It's to do with Nicola and that child," she explained.

Promising an action-packed showdown, she added: "There'll be a few twists and turns – we have some stunts coming up, which will be exciting."

At the risk of going all Dexys Midnight Runners on you, all we can really say is, come on Eileen! Weatherfield needs you.

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
