CORONATION Street boss has teased an epic conclusion to the racist grooming storyline.

Racist and extremist Griff’s plans for Max will come to its climax – but does the teen make it out alive?

Griff has big plans for Max

Can Max see the error of his ways before it’s too late?

The schoolboy – who is played by actor Paddy Bever in the ITV soap – has been indoctrinated into Griff’s racist ways.

Griff is planning something big and dangerous – can undercover cop Spider save him before it’s too late?

Corrie boss Iain Macleod has told HOAR that there will be an heroic act and shock death.

He said: “Can’t say too much but he [Spider] is obviously integrally related to the Max story and will have a part to play in the unknitting of it in the end.

“I think the most I can say without giving a lot away is definitely mixed up in the Max story and a has a moment of heroism and endangers his life somewhat, shows himself to be the decent bloke we know he is.

“Making it sound like he’s going to die but I’m not necessarily saying that! All about the Max story, part of the climax to that.”

The after effects will cause shockwaves through the cobbles.

And it will be a long journey for Max to overcome his terrifying experience with the far right group.

Iain added: “By the start of 2023, Max has well and truly been red pilled and even more estranged from his family than he has been.

“This leads him into extremely dangerous territory its fair to say, he will over the course of 2023 realise the error of his ways, a lot of what we’re doing after that is about him being deprogrammed and un-brainwashed.

“There is a redemption on the horizon for him after what he’s been through. After effects like with all stories last for
a very long time after that.”

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8pm on ITV.
