Coronation Street fans could barely watch the soap in the same way after spoilers revealed Aidan Connor will be soon taking his own life in a harrowing male suicide story line.
In tonight’s episode, Aidan was carrying on life seemingly as normal with his father Johnny.
They were chatting as usual and Summer joined them, asking whether it would be possible to clean the factory for some extra money so she can buy an outfit for a party coming up.
He seemed quieter than usual, with things clearly on his mind.
Later on, he went to the pub with his dad, and they were found playing darts and joking, though Aidan still seemed somewhat dejected.
But suddenly, Peter Barlow ran into the pub to announce his news, that he had a new baby.
Aidan shook his hand and wished him well, but he was evidently thinking about Eva and her baby, after they had a discussion about the child being his.
Meanwhile, Aidan had no idea that the baby Peter was excited for was in fact Eva’s, and that his former love was in a cottage having just given birth.
But fans were sad watching him on the show knowing that in a short while, his character will be leaving in tragic circumstances.
It was announced earlier this week that Aidan Connor would take his own life in harrowing scenes.
Nothing of his actual suicide is shown on screen, but he will be discovered by his dad at his flat, after the Underworld boss does not arrive for work at the factory.
Fans were really upset to see him knowing what was about to come.
One wrote: "My heart sank when I saw Aidan."
Aidan’s exit scenes will air next week, and he told the This Morning hosts: "I got asked before Christmas. I was full of different emotions.
"I was instantly scared, nervous and completely heartbroke. I knew it was more than just a storyline and the impact it would have on the public. I’m full of emotions."
Coronation Street continues on Friday from 7.30pm on ITV.
