WITH three murders under his belt, Stephen Reid is desperate to try and keep a low profile.
Unfortunately, no dirty secret stays hidden forever in Coronation Street and he's met with shocking evidence of one of his own crimes.
Stephen Reid was desperate to stay at the top of the Underworld factory after getting rid of Carla Connor.
However, his plans seemed foiled when Rufus Donahue came along and threatened to blow his cover.
As a result, and after murdering both Leo and Teddy Thompkins, the criminal portrayed by Todd Boyce turned into a full-blown serial killer by taking Rufus down in his home.
Months have since passed and the death has seemingly been swept under the rug.

Unfortunately for Stephen, upcoming scenes of the ITV soap will show him that his secrets could soon be exposed as Rufus' wife sets out on her own mission to get to the bottom of his death.
Coming up, Lou calls at the factory and tells Stephen and Michael Bailey (Ryan Russell) she’s cancelled the meeting as the inquest report into Rufus’s death is due out the following day.
Lou makes it clear she suspects foul play and she’s contacted the Gazette – Stephen, knowing the jig could be up, masks his panic.
Alone in the factory office, Stephen scours the press for reports about Rufus’s death.

Willing to do anything to cover his tracks, Stephen assures her it was obviously a tragic accident.
A guilty Stephen later struggles at Rufus’ memorial, after being asked by Rufus’ son Jools how he knew his father and he hurries out.
Returning with the staff from the factory in tow he explains to Carla that he thought it would make Rufus look more popular.
When Jools makes an emotional speech about his father, Stephen hurries off to the gents, watched by Carla and Lou.
