Ali Neeson (played by Jamie Burrows) has been battling with his demons since confessing to mum Michelle (Kym Marsh) that he killed Ronan Truman (Alan McKenna).
The trainee doctor murdered the drug lord after learning he planned to kill his entire family as payback for his son’s death.
Now, actor Jamie, who plays the health practitioner, worries his character will be killed off Coronation Street for his crime.
The 27-year-old admitted: “I have no idea where they’ll take the character but I’m quite excited. I like being in the dark about it.”
However, the TV star went on to tell The Mirror he feared Ali would be turned into a mass murderer or killed off the show.
“I don’t really want to see Ali being the new mass murderer and get killed off or whatever but we’ll see,” he added.
Describing his on-screen persona, Jamie gushed about Ali’s “good soul” and “good heart”, before revealing his character regretted killing Ronan.
“He’s from a good family, he’s been studying to be a doctor for the past seven or eight years and I think he’s done something and instantly regretted it,” he added.
“You’ve seen that on screen, deep down he’s a good guy.”
Fans will have to wait until the New Year to see what lies in store for Ali, as he will not feature much in the Christmas episodes.
“I’ve got a little bit of time off work I’m not really in the Christmas bits. I’ll be back in the New Year,” the soap star explained.
Christmas in Weatherfield is going to be eventful this year, as Coronation Street released a series of spoiler images online, one of which teased the death of Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews).
In a photo uploaded to the show’s official Twitter page, Jenny could be seen collapsed on the floor of the Rovers Return.
Next to Jenny, her husband Johnny (Richard Hawley) and barmaid Gemma Winter (Dolly Rose Campbell) are captured rushing to her aid.
It also looks as though the pub landlady may have fallen down the staircase in the pub – or was she pushed?
The pictures were released after new Coronation Street boss Iain MacLeod promised their will be some “heartbreaking” storylines this year.
“When you sit down as you try and digest your stuffing balls and sprouts, you need it to be warm and light-hearted in places and you need it to reek of Christmas,” he told Metro.co.uk.
“So, it’ll be a Christmassy Christmas, it’ll have some big, heartbreaking stories within that, it’ll have a big shock at the end.”
He concluded: “Hopefully it’ll be a surprising pay off to those stories that you’ve just seen the inception of here.”
Coronation Street continues Wednesday on ItV at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
