Coronation Street fans ‘work out’ Stephen’s downfall as he burns Leo’s belongings after murder

Coronation Street fans think they have figured out Stephen Reid's downfall after he murdered Leo Thompkins earlier this week.

On Monday, Leo was on a mission to prove that Stephen is a liar after learning that he had kissed his fiancée Jenny Connor when she was drunk and they had briefly split.

Leo decided to speak to the estate agent who was booked to value Audrey Roberts' house, before eavesdropping on a conversation with Gabrielle.

Confronting Stephen on the balcony behind the Underworld factory, Leo revealed he had heard every word and knew about his plan to get his hands on the equity from Audrey’s house to pay her back.

As Stephen followed him onto the factory gantry, Leo taunted him, threatening to call Audrey as well as the police.

To which Stephen snapped as he attacked Leo, pushing him off the balcony as he fell into the open bin below and it was later confirmed he was dead.

On Wednesday's episode, Jenny started to grow suspicious about Leo's whereabouts as he hadn't been home all night with his phone going straight to voicemail.

And Jenny got even more concerned as it got closer to their time to leave for Canada as Leo's belongings and passport were still in the pub as she questioned whether he had cold feet.

After overhearing about Leo's stuff, Stephen snuck in and removed it with the episode ending with him burning it all in an abandoned field.

While Jenny was left gutted to discover Leo's belongings gone as she assumed he had dumped her and gone to Canada without her.

Soap watchers were quick to react to the scenes as they pointed out Stephen's blunder, which could lead to his downfall, as they questioned whether the Rovers Return has CCTV cameras.

Taking to Twitter, one person said: "Errrm, sooo, there's no cameras/CCTV or whatever in the pub?!? #Corrie."
