Share article:

Coronation Street's Liz McDonald will be left fighting for her life this Christmas when she is mowed down by a motor.

Beverley Callard's character looks set for a miserable festive period when she is hit by a car, and her former lover Johnny Connor (Richard Hawley) is arrested by police before people start to suspect his scorned wife Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews), who recently found out about the pair's affair.

A source said: "Liz's attempted murder is one of the big Christmas storylines.

"Johnny is the one who initially arrested for it, but fingers are eventually pointed at Jenny."

As well as being arrested, Johnny will face a crisis at work as local cobbles residents threaten to boycott his and Jenny's Rovers Return pub.
