Coronation Street serial killer Richard Hillman returns to the cobbles for one night only on Halloween – The Sun

CORONATION Street serial killer Richard Hillman is returning to the soap's famous cobbles for Halloween.

The murderous character, played by Brian Capron, is going to be terrifying visitors to the show's official tour – not least because he's been dead for years.

Richard's reign of terror between 2001 and 2003 saw him leave Duggie Ferguson to die before he killed his ex-wife Patricia with a shovel.

He also kidnapped Norris Cole, set his mother-in-law Audrey Roberts' house on fire and tried to murder Emily Bishop with a crowbar.

He then killed Maxine Peacock and framed his stepdaughter's ex Aiden Critchley for her murder.

The character – frequently voted one of the all-time best soap villains – died from drowning in 2003, when he abducted his step-family and drove them into a canal.


Now, he will return for a special spooky one-off night of terror at the soap's set in Salford, near Manchester, on Saturday 26 October.

It will feature trick-or-treating, face painting and a walking tour of scary plots from the programme's history.

Brian, 72, said: "I had some fantastic storylines during my time on Coronation Street.

"Richard was such a sinister and eerie character – I've certainly got some ghastly stories to share from his years of murderous crimes."
