CORONATION STREET saw one major character make a shock return on tonight's episode, and it completely changed the course of Pat Phelan's sinister plans.
When Vinny Ashford (played by Ian Kelsey) made a surprise visit to his mother Flora on the ITV soap, little did he know that his old friend-turned-enemy Pat Phelan (Connor McIntyre) was waiting for him.
As the twisted con-man revealed he'd kidnapped Vinny's mother, the pair entered into a tense scrap.
"I've been thinking about this moment quite a lot - what I'd do, what I'd say," Pat said, as Vinny demanded: "Where's my mum?"
Pat continued: "Fair play to you Vinny. You shafted me good and proper," as Vinny teased that it was because Pat "was a mug".
While Vinny kept begging for the fellow builder to let his elderly mother go, Pat was firm that he wouldn't be doing him any favours.
He said: "There is one thing I'm not, and that's a mug. You hurt me you pay. From now on you do what I tell you otherwise this is going to be the last personal appearance that Flora's ever going to make.
