Coronation Street’s Jack Duckworth to be Tram Crash Victim in 50th Anniversary of Show? Cornwall Ontario – August 4, 2010

Cornwall ON – Coronation Street Legend Jack Duckworth ( Bill Tarmey) is set to be killed off by producers in their big 50th Anniversary Tram Wreck!    The actor has been on the show for over 30 years, but with health concerns and approaching his 70th birthday apparently wants to spend more time with his family.


While exact details of the accident and its casualties are being kept under wraps, other characters set for the chop are thought to include John Stape, played by Graeme Hawley.

Dev Alahan, played by Jimmi Harkishin, Ciaran McCarthy, (Boyzone’s Keith Duffy) and Samia Smith’s character Maria Connor could also be victims of the disaster.

Good grief.   So my fellow Canadian Corrie fans; what do you think of this mess?  I’m sad that Jack and Vera were both killed off; well maybe not so much with Vera, (Elizabeth Dawn) but Jack Duckworth could be such a valuable icon to pop in and out on occasion.
