Coronation Street arsonist revealed?

The Sun has reported who they believe is responsible for the upcoming blaze at Coronation Street‘s Rovers Return pub.






Karl Munro (John Michie) is named as the culprit behind next month’s fire which engulfs the Rovers Return leaving Sunita Alahan (Shobna Gulati) dead.

The paper claims that Karl seeks revenge following the break-down of his relationship with Stella Price (Michelle Collins) over his recent affair with Sunita, who he blamed since for the secret being exposed.

Press pictures today have shown Jason Grimshaw’s (Ryan Thomas) work van being blown up by Karl. Jason is currently dating Stella but Karl vows to win her back at any cost.

“He will do whatever it takes to get Stella back. He will go to the extremes and will not take no for an answer. Karl despises Sunita. He blames her entirely and vows to make her pay. Initially, he has a plan and a calculation but it all goes horribly wrong. It’s the events that turn him bad — deep down Karl isn’t a bad person — he’s just obsessed and in love.” – Actor John Michie speaking to The Sun
