Coronation Street has revealed a jaw dropping first look at the massive explosion that could leave Aadi Alahan (Adam Hussain) dead after Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) opts to save Asha (Tanisha Gorey) from the crash.
The family have skidded on the road due to the stormy weather when Harvey Gaskell’s (Will Mellor) prison van smashes into them.
The car is a wreck and both Dev and Aadi come round, forcing Dev into a snap decision.
Believing that Aadi can help himself get free, he grabs Asha and carries her from the wreckage.
But Aadi is stuck and Dev has no time to go back when the vehicle blows up.
Jimmi told Metro.co.uk: ‘Dev is unconscious and when he wakes up he realises that they have been hit from behind. He is choking and there is smoke in the car, it’s dark, all the lights are off and Dev has had the wind knocked out of him.
‘Aadi is trapped in the front of the car but he is lucid and talking whereas Asha is unconscious. It’s a knee-jerk reaction from Dev – who do you try to get to safety?
‘His daughter isn’t talking, she is not responding and I really do think that is the only thing that Dev could have done. It wasn’t a question of choice or favouritism, it was who needed his help more at that time. He had to pull her out and he was going to come straight back for his son but then the car explodes.’
Discussing the filming of the explosion, Jimmi was clearly in awe but this wasn’t his first rodeo with being around things blowing up.
He said; ‘It really took my breath away. I watched it from a distance and the stunt guy who was playing me, who was taller, younger and much better looking than me, did an amazing job.
‘It was jaw dropping to watch in person. Then you realise, playing your role, what it actually is that you’ve got to respond to in the next scene. Your imagination can’t take you there. It was really good.
‘When the corner shop exploded, with Maya, that was epic as well but this is amazing. Looking back at the stunt with mad Maya, it was so long ago, I feel like a different person!
‘I love all the character work that you have to do when you have a scene with any of the great actors on Coronation Street but doing stunts, you are on your own and you have to find your way through it.’
The horror scenes will unfold on Monday October 18 at 8:30pm on ITV.
