Coronation Street spoilers follow.
Coronation Street brings back Todd Grimshaw’s former nemesis Mick Chaney next week.
Mick, played by Neil Bell, makes a reappearance in the ITV soap as part of the ongoing Ray Crosby storyline.
Scenes airing early next week see gangster Mick violently chuck Ray (Mark Frost) out the back of his van, backed up by a heavy.
Ray owes money to Mick and is told in no uncertain terms that he has got just 24 hours to pay up – or else.
The threats from Mick heap pressure on Ray, who has mounting financial issues to deal with.
Debbie Webster is disgusted when Ray reveals that he’s had to use money earmarked to buy Number 4 and Number 6 in order to pay off Mick.
There’s a sense that Ray’s plans are starting to spiral out of control, making it all the more important that he gets his lucrative new development off the ground as soon as possible.
Coronation Street‘s producer Iain MacLeod previously teased: “[Ray] becomes more desperate to get this building project over the line, because we discover he’s got quite a lot riding on it.
“If it goes wrong, it could be curtains for him, very literally.”
Corrie villain Mick previously appeared in the show late last year as part of Todd Grimshaw’s return storyline.
Mick was out to kill Todd after the schemer had stolen money from him, but in a bizarre twist, he ultimately let the matter drop after a telling-off from Eileen.
Coronation Street airs these scenes on Monday, January 18 at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
