The Platt family are on the run from dodgy dealer Callum Logan in the hour-long special

Coronation Street fans are in for a treat this month as the soap airs its most thrilling episode yet and it’s going to be LIVE! Eek, we’re excited!

Die-hard viewers will see the Platt family face turmoil as they are chased by evil drug dealer Callum Logan.

The episode teaser, aired today on This Morning, shows David, Kylie and Sarah Platt running from Callum to the backdrop of dramatic RnB music.

As the family reach the end of the cobbles the road is replaced with a massive drop and the trio have nowhere to run.

Watch it here:

The hour-long live episode marks the 60th anniversary of the show and will be screened on Friday September 21st.

The special will also focus on Lloyd and Andrea’s leaving party in the Rovers, Roy and Cathy’s burgeoning relationship and Tim finding out about Kevin and Sally’s secret kiss.

In 2010 the soap scooped a seven-year high audience figure of 15million for its live episode to mark 50 years.

The special was billed as ‘four funerals and a wedding’ and featured a tram crash where Ashely Peacock (Steven Arnold) and Molly Dobbs (Vicky Binns) were killed off.

It appears anticipation is mounting among fans for the drama filled live episode due to air later this month.

This afternoon the soap’s Twitter account posted the trailer causing fans to go into a frenzy.

One excited fan wrote, ‘wow that looks superb.’

While another couldn’t help but get enthused about the foreboding drama, referring to baddie Callum, she wrote, ‘with ur wife and sister holding u still beware of the evil brat behind you’

Meanwhile, one concerned viewer noticed the pounding the set has taken, ‘is it an earthquake or a giant sinkhole? Either way them poor cobbles can’t take no more!’

We have to say—we can’t wait either!
