Coronation Street SPOILER: Harvey Gaskell suffers nasty forehead cut filming


Drugs kingpin Harvey Gaskell suffered a nasty cut to his forehead as actor Will Mellor was spotted filming dramatic scenes escaping from a prison van on Monday.

The injured villain, who was thrown behind bars after his criminal ways were exposed by Leanne Battersby, was seen breaking out of the vehicle in handcuffs, hinting he could be set for an unwelcome appearance on the Street.  

Harvey was jailed after Leanne decided to team up with police to protect her son Simon from becoming one of his drugs mules, with his fate left up in the air as viewers never learned the full length of his sentence.

In the scenes, Will could be seen sporting a bandaged hand and a prison tracksuit as he was climbing out the van.

He also had fake blood covering the side of his face and his clothes were left wet after it had been raining during the takes.

Some of the pictures showed him climbing out of the side of a prison van which had tipped over during an accident in the bad weather.

He was seen scrambling out while struggling with his handcuffs and bandages before taking a break and chatting with the crew.

Harvey terrorised Leanne (played by Jane Danson) and her family for months by forcing her to deliver drugs in a desperate bid to protect her son Simon.  

Still grieving the loss of her son Oliver, Leanne, was devastated to learn Simon had become involved in drug dealing, and attempted to take over the job.

Eventually Leanne teamed up with police to try and expose Harvey’s drugs operation, but her plot was nearly thwarted by Harvey’s aunt Sharon Bentley.

A terrified Leanne later refused to give evidence in court, but eventually stood up to Harvey, and provided the truth that sent him down. 

It’s thought that Corrie is in the middle of filming its annual Big Week that will air this autumn, so it’s likely Harvey’s return will spell trouble for Leanne and her family.

Elsewhere, actress Jane has hinted that fans could see Leanne reunited with her on-off flame Nick Tilsey once again, adding that there could be another soap wedding on the horizon.

Speaking to TV Times Magazine, she said: ‘After everything they’ve been through, that would be lovely. But only if it ended a nice way, because usually when they get married, it doesn’t!

‘We’ve seen the reasons they are together, and they do love each other. They’ve grown up and they’re not having affairs anymore, so if they’re going to share their lives together, it would be lovely.’

Coronation Street airs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
