Coronation Street favourites Ashley Peacock and Nick Tilsley will battle to heave trapped Peter Barlow from the rubble in a life-or-death struggle.

All three men are in grave peril when the Joinery bar starts to collapse around them, leaving viewers to wonder who will make it out alive.

The gripping scenes unfold as the men lie buried under debris after an explosion in the new nightspot caused a tram to smash on to the cobbles.

Peter (Chris Gascoyne), who just hours earlier was celebrating his stag do, is left with life-threatening injuries after the blast.

Fearing the emergency services will be too late, Ashley (Steven Arnold) and Nick (Ben Price) mount a rescue mission.

But they put their own lives at risk as they try to drag him to safety, away from the wrecked bar.

The episode is part of a week of special programming to celebrate Coronation Street’s 50th anniversary.

An hour-long live show on ITV1 will mark the milestone on Thursday December 9.
