The ITV soap is set to take viewers on a rollercoaster of emotions and high drama with a collapsed sinkhole, a catastrophic rainstorm, and a fireball car crash in upcoming Coronation Street episodes this month. Among those involved in the jaw-dropping tragedies will be Dev (played by Jimmi Harkishin), who finds himself in the impossible situation of having to choose which one of his children to save from his burning car.
After setting off on holiday with his twins Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey) and Aadi Alahan (Adam Hussain), disaster strikes as Dev’s car is struck.
As the thunder crashes overhead, the family find themselves lost on a country road.
Heading for the same lane is a prison van rushing injured drug dealer Harvey Gaskill (Will Mellor) to hospital, but he has another destination, and vengeance, in mind.
Dev is forced to make a choice about which of his kids he will drag from the wreck of his car.

Could one of the twins end up dead based on Dev’s decision?
The family would be left devastated, with the twins having already lost their mother Sunita Alahan (Shobna Gulati).
With one of the twins potentially not making it out alive, how will the Alahans cope with more tragedy?
The plot comes as part of a huge disaster in the soap, which is set to be the most ambitious storylines in Coronation Street history.
The week starts on a high note, with Debbie Webster putting the finishing touches to the House of Horrors attraction behind the street.
“I have to say it again: our team has excelled themselves.”
The producer said filming the soap amid the coronavirus pandemic had been a challenge, but he praised the cast for their dedication.
He added: “I think there’s some stuff in there that you’ll never see coming, which is always the best thing in a soap or any drama, stuff that makes you go ‘What have they just done?’
“And I think the end result is something that is more ambitious than anything we’ve done on the show before.
“Obviously we’ve done some big things in the past but in terms of the number of technical elements that are in this week, I think that exceeds everything I’ve been involved in, certainly.”
What will the repercussions be for Dev? It’s possible he could be consumed with guilt if he loses one of the twins because he’d chosen to save the other.
He might end up leaving Weatherfield with the surviving twin unable to handle the grief.
However, it’s also likely that either Asha or Aadi may find it hard to forgive their father for not saving both of them, and could tear the family apart for good.
With Iain promising that the results of the tragic night will be ongoing, the Alahans might end up coming to terms with what happens for long time.
Back on the Street, Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) also wants revenge and, having got her hands on a gun, is determined to make Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) pay for murdering her son Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni).
Despite her own feelings towards Corey, Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher) is desperate to stop Abi, but with the storm raging, will she be able to reach her in time?
Things take a terrifying twist when the ground ends up opening up beneath the residents, leaving Abi, Corey, Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews) and Johnny Connor (Richard Hawley) trapped in rising water underground in the Victorian sewers.
Above ground, Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) comes face to face with her worst nightmare as evil Harvey makes a dramatic return, and is looking for her.
Coronation Street continues on Monday at 7.30pm on ITV.
