Coronation Street's Anna Windass to be killed off?

Share article:

Coronation Street's Debbie Rush has hinted that her alter-ego Anna Windass will be killed off by monster murderer Pat Phelan.

The 51-year-old actress has portrayed the waitress since 2008, and is set to depart the show at the end of the year, with Anna appearing on screens until early 2018.

And the bubbly brunette has revealed that she has no idea whether she'll be returning in the future, as there is a possibility that she could die at the hands of the evil cowboy builder [Connor McIntyre].

She said: "Everyone wants Anna to bring him down. I still get little old ladies to young lads shouting "Oi, Anna, when you gonna get Phelan?" So everyone wants him done in, and they all want Anna to do it."

And asked if she will be leaving the door open to return to the ITV soap after she's left, Anna teased: "Well, it would depend on whether Anna is dead or alive..."

And quizzed further whether it would bother her not being able to reprise the role, according to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she admitted: "I said it was up to the writers to do whatever they liked - whatever is best, even if the door is shut permanently. I wasn't bothered either way."

Viewers have had mixed opinions about Anna being raped by Pat, but Debbie says it was an important aspect as an older woman being forced into having sex.

The actress also thinks it would make sense for Anna to be the one to point the gun at him.

She said: "As a woman, I know there has been a debate for some time over did he rape her or didn't he rape her?

"Well, he did, because she was coerced into having sex with him to protect her family.

"We've just done the Bethany Platt [Lucy Fallon] storyline and the nation is on Bethany's side and knows she was groomed and raped. Anna was a grown woman who was groomed and raped.

"That's the way I've played it and why, for me, Anna would be the one to bring him down with justice."
