A whopping 12 million viewers tuned in to Corrie last night for the big whodunit reveal, and for many, it was a big shock to learn it was his mum Anne who murdered him.
Anne, who’s played by Gwen Taylor, revealed that she hit Frank (Andrew Lancel) over the head with a whiskey bottle after hearing him taunting rape victim Carla Connor (Alison King).
However, in last night’s dramatic showdown, not only did Sally Webster (Sally Dynevor) nearly end up on the death list, Carla could’ve too when Anne brandished a knife and threatened to kill her if she called an ambulance for Sally.
But of course, in the end, the somewhat stupid Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) blundered in on the scene – why he didn’t just call the police is a bit of a plot hole but hey ho – and broke the spell over Anne and her confession session, and she collapsed sobbing while Carla summoned help… Read more & comment »
Corrie fans are gagging to know who killed Frank Foster – that is, those who don’t already know – but it seems Manchester CID have known for ages whodunit…
They were reportedly called in by the show’s scriptwriters to ensure that details of the plot were realistic, but, according to the Sun, they were “sworn to secrecy” over who turns out to be the murderer.
A Coronation Street insider told the paper, “This is such a big storyline that we wanted to make sure that every little detail was spot on.
“So we have taken advice from the experts. Obviously these scripts are closely guarded so we’ve sworn the police to secrecy…” Read more & comment »
As fans of Corrie will know, Sally Webster found out that Frank Foster (Andrew Lancel) was a duplicitous liar right before he was murdered, but she’s about to find herself in danger from his killer when she unearths some evidence that points to the murderer’s identity.
Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally, has been telling Soaplife all about how her character comes face to face with the desperate killer, and by doing so, puts her own life at risk.

Lordy, Coronation Street is turning out to be as dangerous a place to live as Midsomer, and in an upcoming plotline, poor old Sally Webster (Sally Dynevor) could well be the next Street resident to leave in a coffin…
The attempt on Sally’s life comes after she learns the identity of Frank Foster’s (Andrew Lancel) murderer shortly after attending his funeral. She accidentally finds a crucial bit of evidence, and immediately realizes who killed Frank.
But when she confronts the killer, she has no idea that the next funeral on the Street could be her own!
A Corrie insider told the Star, “The killer has no intention of going down for murder and has to stop Sally talking.
“It’s the only way he or she can get away with the killing… Read more & comment »
It’s been reported today that bookmakers have suspended betting on who will turn out to be Frank Foster’s murderer after the guilty party’s name was revealed on a website yesterday.
Frank (Andrew Lancel) was of course murdered by a blow to the head, and the main suspects were Frank’s former fiancé Carla Connor (Alison King) and her new boyfriend Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) as well as Sally and Kevin Webster (Sally Dynevor and Michael Le Vell), and Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh).
However, after murderer’s name was revealed, all the bookies cancelled betting. It was also reported earlier this week in We Love Telly magazine that the murder weapon would turn out to be a whiskey bottle… Read more & comment »
Coronation Street star Chris Gascoyne has been telling Soaplife exactly why it is that his character, Peter Barlow, confesses to murdering Frank Foster…
As we saw last night, a drunken Peter told a whole restaurant full of people that he wanted Frank (Andrew Lancel) dead, and in the next episode, we’ll see Peter return to his flat covered in blood with no memory of where he’s been or what he did.
Chris explained, “Peter returns from a massive bender and he’s shocked to hear that Frank has been killed.
“After the row in the factory the day before Peter wanted nothing more than to see Frank dead, and when he’s questioned about his motive and his whereabouts he realises he has no memory of where he’s been…” Read more & comment »
News from Weatherfield way today starts with Kym Marsh – who plays Michelle Connor – revealing in her new! magazine column that things are “difficult” for her while her fiancé Jamie Lomas is in the States trying to find work.
Kym’s decision to clarify the status of her relationship with Jamie came after a tabloid paper last week published a picture of Kym without her engagement ring. Kym angrily retorted that she’d taken it off briefly while playing sports, and simply hadn’t yet put it back on when the picture was taken.
At the time, Kym told her Twitter followers that she would address the issue in her column.
She wrote, “The decision for him to go to LA was a joint one and I knew how long for. Yes, it’s hard and I’m tired.
“But I’ve got a really good network of family and friends to rely on.”
Kym added that former Hollyoaks star Jamie would be back in time to celebrate their daughter Polly’s first birthday on March 23, and she reiterated that there are no “cracks” in their relationship. Read more & comment »
When Frank Foster is murdered next week, Carla and Michelle Connor make a decision that could land both of them in prison…
As fans of the show will know, before he’s murdered, Frank (Andrew Lancel) planned to buy Carla (Alison King) out of Underworld for a fraction of what her share is worth. He also planned to then fire all the workers.
And as we saw on Friday night, woman now very much scorned, Sally Webster (Sally Dynevor) threatened to expose his plan, but in turn, he made threats of what might happen to Sally if she doesn’t keep quiet.
Sally is of course one of the five suspects in the whodunit, but Carla makes herself a prime suspect when the police investigating Frank’s murder find out she hid a pretty vital piece of evidence… Read more & comment »
As fans of Corrie will of course know, on March 5th, Frank Foster’s reign of terror is over when he’s found dead.
By the look of pictures of Frank on the factory floor, it seems he died from head injuries, and standing over his dead body is Sally Webster (Sally Dynevor), so things of course don’t look good for her, but there are four other suspects too…
And as Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) will stagger into his flat, drunk and covered in blood just as Frank’s (Andrew Lancel) body is found, it’s looking pretty serious for him too!
However, Alison King, who of course plays Carla – who is herself a prime suspect – has told Soaplife that Carla lies to the police when they come calling, but the question is, who is she protecting? Herself or Peter? Read more & comment »

For months now, the nation has been screaming at the telly whenever Sally Webster takes evil Frank Foster’s side against Carla Connor, however, in forthcoming episodes, Sally’s about to find out the full extent of Frank’s lies…
And today, Digital Spy have an interview with Sally Dynevor, who of course plays Sally, in which she describes what goes through her character’s mind when she learns the full horrible truth about Frank (Andrew Lancel).
She began by saying “It’s all about to come crashing down. Frank is very clever, very charming and very manipulative…
“So he’s been able to tell Sally all the things that she wanted to hear. Frank needed Sally through the rape trial, but now that he’s been acquitted, he doesn’t really need her anymore.
“This week, things unravel and Sally discovers that Frank’s really not the man that she thought he was… Read more & comment »
There is of course a great deal of speculation about who’s going to murder Frank Foster – which is set to happen in the episode that airs on March 5th – but right at the top of the list if suspects is Sally Webster…
Sally – who’s played by Sally Dynevor – will be found standing over Frank’s dead body at the factory, and given that just days before his death, she’ll find out he did in fact rape Carla (Alison King) and that he’s cheating on her, she has plenty of reason to want him dead.
However, his mum Anne (Gwen Taylor) is also a prime suspect as she too is about to discover the truth about her precious son…
But in a terrifying twist, it was reported recently that whoever it is who murders Frank may have to kill two other Corrie residents to keep them quiet when they discover the murderer’s identity.
So when Sally goes missing after paying a visit to Anne Foster, we’ll be left wondering if she’s the latest victim of the killer. Read more & comment »
As fans of Coronation Street will know, evil Frank Foster is about to face his maker when he’s murdered…
And of course, there will be no shortage of suspects since he’s made an enemy of many of the Street’s residents, and he’s about to make one more when he warns Sally Webster (Sally Dynevor) not to meddle in his affairs.
Sally’s love affair with Frank turns sour when she suspects he’s seeing someone else, and she’s right, he is. He’s dating Jenny Sumner, the buyer we saw last week refusing to work with Carla (Alison King) because of the tension between her and Frank.
However, it seems she’s not only about to become Frank’s bit on the side, she’s also going to help him overthrow Carla so that he can get her out of Underworld… Read more & comment »
The Sun’s TV Biz today has the above picture of the Connor women attending Frank Foster’s (Andrew Lancel) funeral…
And one might imagine they’re there simply to make sure he’s good and dead, and/or to dance on his grave.
But of course, for the Connor women, Carla, Michelle and Maria, going to a funeral is an almost annual event, given that they’ve attended Paul Connor’s, who was married to Carla, Liam Connor’s, who was married to Maria and brother of Michelle – and Carla’s bit on the side – and of course, Carla, being something of a black widow, has buried another husband already; Tony Gordon.
And now, they’re planting Frank, but of course, they’re all prime suspects in his murder, as are his mum Anne (Gwen Taylor) and woman soon to be scorned, Sally Webster (Sally Dynevor)… Read more & comment »
As fans of Coronation Street will know, wicked businessman Frank Foster (Andrew Lancel) is about to turn up very dead, murdered by one of six suspects…
His body will be found in the Underworld factory, and given that he’s made innumerable enemies – and that his mum Anne and girlfriend Sally Webster are about to find out he did in fact rape Carla Connor (Alison King) – there are plenty of people with motive to kill him.
And today, the Sun’s TV Biz has the above picture of Sally (Sally Dynevor) appealing to Anne Foster (Gwen Taylor) to talk to her about Frank’s death.
Both women are, as I mentioned, suspects in his death, but when Sally appeals to Anne to talk to her, Anne’s reluctant, perhaps believing that Sally killed her son. Or maybe she has a guilty conscience and doesn’t want Sally to suspect she murdered her own son… Read more & comment »
