RYAN Connor was left in a horrific state following Monday’s trip to Weatherfield.

But what exactly happened to the Coronation Street character? Here’s your reminder.

Ryan Connor was left in a horrific state on Monday’s episode of Coronation Street

Ryan was attacked by Justin

The troubled character was aiming to attack Daisy Midgeley with acid

Daisy Midgeley gleefully accepted to walk down the aisle with Daniel Osbourne during the festive season.

However, while she was ready to take her relationship to the next level, the Rovers barmaid portrayed by Charlotte Jordan had no clue she was being closely followed by a man named Justin (Andrew Still).

The troubled character grew infatuated with Daisy after initially meeting her at the hospital during her cancer scare.

Soon enough, Justin followed Daisy around the cobbles but she always tried to push him away and even attempted to get a Stalking Protection Order against him.

Daisy eventually managed to get Justin away from her when he was arrested for assault after she’d lured him into a private conversation with her.

Unfortunately, Justin retaliated and in shocking scenes aired Monday (March 27, 2023) on ITV, he rocked up Corrie again to get his revenge.

At the time, Daisy was getting ready for her wedding with Daniel (Rob Mallard) in the Rovers and Ryan Connor (Ryan Prescott) was asked to drive her to the church for the big day.

The pair were shocked when Justin showed up in the Rovers Return Inn with a glass of acid in hand, prepared to attack Daisy.

Justin aimed to throw the acid at Daisy, stating nobody would want her after his attack – but Ryan ended up being Justin’s victim.

Ryan sustained life-changing injuries from the acid attack, which occurred just as he was dreaming of heading off to Ibiza for his DJ career.

Viewers have been worried Ryan’s attack could prompt him to leave Weatherfield for good but they can rest assured – actor Ryan Prescott teased that his on-screen recovery will play out in upcoming scenes.

“It’ll change his life forever. It will change the way he interacts with the world and the recovery”, the soap star said to Metro.co.uk.

“The difficulty within the parameters of soap is to show some kind of reality that comes with the longevity of what it means to be an acid attack survivor. The recovery period is so long, if not lifelong.”

Ryan will not only have permanent scarring but will also be needing skin grafts.

Could someone from his past resurface to help him in his recovery?

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