Coronation Street is reportedly planning a shooting storyline, as Eileen Grimshaw (Sue Cleaver) will be left horrified after her former partner Jan Lozinski (Piotr Baumann) is shot.

Jan, who was recently working as a police informant to infiltrate a human trafficking ring, looks set to be shot by trafficker Rachel Healy (Verity Henry), as reported by The Daily Star Sunday.

After Alina Pop (Ruxandra Porojnicu) and her fellow nail bar workers were rescued from their modern slavery ordeal recently, Eileen believed that Jan was part of the ring for real.

But Eileen is in for a shock as Jan makes a surprise return to the cobbles, after deciding that he has to see Eileen and explain everything.

Eileen can't believe what she's hearing when Jan declares his love for her and begs her to move away with him to Amsterdam.

Whether Eileen decides to leave with Jan or not, she seems to be with him when he is apparently shot by vengeful Rachel – who has been following and spying on him for some time.

Will poor Jan survive or is Eileen set for even more heartbreak?

The terrifying scenes were filmed in Manchester last week and will air on the soap during the autumn.

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
