The Coronation Street live episode delivered nail-biting action for viewers as they saw Callum (played by Sean Ward), killed off in the first half hour.

Bad boy Callum attacked Sarah (Tina O'Brien) - but got more than he bargained for as Kylie smacked him on a head with a wrench, killing him.

Talking about his last scene and last night's live episode, Ward said: "Cracks were definitely starting to show and he (Callum) was trying to keep his head above the water.

He said: "The Platts were the only people he thought he could really intimidate quickly enough into getting him the money he needed."

Even though viewers may have seen Callum's demise coming from a mile away, Ward reckons Callum never reckoned he'd be knocked down for good.

"Callum always thought he would have the upper hand, but during his last few weeks he really showed his true colours and his actions proved how much of a coward he really was," he said.

Ward says he was excited when he found out his character was going to be killed off.

He said: "Initially I didn't feel that upset" but went on to say he is "gutted" to be leaving the show.

"It's been phenomenal playing Callum, it really has, and in his last few weeks on screen he was throwing the net out across Weatherfield by causing trouble for more and more people, which I really enjoyed playing out."
