Fan favourite Michael Rodwell was finally killed off in last night’s episode of Coronation Street, leaving viewers in a state of shock.

He was left fighting for his life after fighting with his arch-nemesis Pat Phelan. Cripes, can someone not finish that Phelan off already!?

Michael, played by Les Dennis, suffered a fatal heart attack after fighting with Pat.

It appeared that he was about to uncover his crooked flat scheme, but just as the whole thing was about to be revealed – he croaked it!

Poor Michael, eh?

Pat Phelan – potentially the most hated man on the cobbles since Callum
Logan (but perhaps not as attractive, eh guys?) - did nothing to help Michael and just ignored his pleas for help. Watching him die, he then hid the body away from his mate, Vinny.

Not going to be a great week for Gail, is it?

Speaking about his character’s exit, Les said: “At least I’m not going to die in an armchair, I am not going off in a taxi, it is an amazing finish and to be working with Connor, the villain that all viewers love to hate is incredible.

“Everyone keeps coming up to me in supermarkets saying when are you going to get that Phelan - well I’ve got a ‘Phelan’ he is going to get me.”.

“I’ve been here for two and a half years and it has absolutely flown by. It is a show that I have loved since I was a kid. I’ve watched it from the very beginning in the 60s, for me to be part of it has been just a joy, an absolute joy.

“I will miss everybody, the crews here are absolutely fantastic, everybody says it is a like a family here, it is a cliche but it is true.

“I will miss all the actors I have worked with and I will hopefully come back and visit and see them but sadly not Michael, he can’t come back but Les can come back and visit the actors but Michael is not coming back unless he wakes up in the shower and it was all a dream!”
