Featuring in the advert is a macabre circus set, a grave, and some seriously bad weather as various Weatherfield residents looks worried about what is to come.

Drug lord Harvey Gaskell (Will Mellor) is shown climbing out of an overturned prison van in the pouring rain as he makes his return to the cobbles despite the law having caught up with him.

He comes face to face with a terrified Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) who will be horrified to see him again after standing up against his crimes.

But Harvey isn't the only villain featuring in the terror week as Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) who recently got away with the murder of Seb Franklin also takes centre stage.

He's shown tormenting Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher) while wearing a Halloween wolf mask as he taunts her in the street.

Producer Iain McLeod said: “We set out to make a week of breathless, brilliant drama - and boy, have our outstanding cast, crew, design team and writers delivered! 

"The week is jam-packed with twists and turns, and astonishing visual spectacle. It also has heart, heroism and humour in the most unexpected places. 

"I have to say it again: our team has excelled themselves. Making any TV in a pandemic is hard, especially if you’ve been doing it non-stop for over 12 months - so I have to tip my hat to everyone for their tireless efforts in continuing to raise the bar, against all the odds.”
