Corrie's upcoming Super Soap Week promises a batch of hair-raising episodes full of daring stunts spine-tingling drama, and it seems nobody is safe from harm.
In tense scenes set to air on ITV, Johnny Connor (Richard Hawley) and his estranged wife Jenny (Sally Ann Matthews) are thrust into danger when a violent storm hits the cobbles.
Jenny has been getting to know her new 'toyboy' boyfriend, Leo, and she's found out that Johnny is gearing up to leave Weatherfield.
Chaos ensues in the pouring rain when Jenny falls into a collapsed sinkhole, with the ground quite literally swallowing her up.
Johnny rushes over to the sinkhole as he's desperate to rescue her, but their fate remains unknown.
However, Corrie fans have become fearful that despite his heroic acts to save Jenny, it could be the end of the soap regular.
Taking to Twitter, some fans have predicted the worst for Johnny ahead of the epic episodes.
One fan said: "Johnny is a gooner He dead. He is so dead. He gonna die Where can I bet money that Johnny is going to die?"
A second said: "Please don’t kill Johnny Connor I beg."
A third penned: "I really, really hope that this will reunite Johnny and Jenny. Please don't let one of them die."

A fourth wrote: "The #Corrie super week looks EPIC! If they kill off Leanne, Johnny & Corey that would be amazing"
It comes as Corrie show boss Ian MacLeod confirmed the return of the sinkhole, which first appeared in Gail Platts' garden a year ago.
He even added that the events of the week would lead to a character's tragic death.
Although their marriage fell through, the pair have become good friends and it's clear that they still care deeply about each other.
Iain MacLeod told the Metro: "Circumstances push them together where they have to confront their lives and future – it’s funny, heroic, emotional and heartfelt. It’s a moment when you feel you can breathe but then you don’t know where to look as some other action is going to explode."
"Jenny and Johnny are really the heart of what is a stunt filled movie-esque experience. They are the old fashioned Corrie heart of the piece."
