Corrie killer John Stapes victims now – from Helen Flanagan to Doreen Mantle

It's been a while since Coronation Street's John Stape cut a swathe of terror through Weatherfield.

The school teacher husband of Fiz, who was played by actor Graeme Hawley, caused chaos on the cobbles over a decade ago in what proved to be a gripping storyline.

The character first turned up in the ITV soap in 2007.

After a four-year stint he had the blood of three people – Colin and Joy Fishwick and Charlotte Hoyle – on his hands.

He died in 2011 after his secrets were exposed.

But what have his 'victims' been up to since they left the soap?

David Crellin as Colin Fishwick

Colin, who was played by David Crellin, was a former colleague of John's and came a cropper after the villain stole his identity.

He was in the middle of confronting John about what was going on when he collapsed and died oif a brain haemorrhage.

Wanting to make sure his secret was safe, John hid the body with the help of Charlotte (Becky Hindley).

Actor David has done just fine since Corrie, appearing in shows like Doctors, Shameless, Accused and Years And Years.

Now 60, he has also been in short films such as Robert And Rob and On In Five.

Becky Hindley as Charlotte Hoyle

Charlotte later met a sticky end of her own.

The character saw red when John refused to dump Fiz and went for him with a hammer.

He then whacked her and she ended up dying of brain damage.

Actress Becky Hindley, 56, is probably best known for playing Charlotte.

But in the years before she landed the part she also had two other small roles in the soap in 2006 and 2007, playing an invigilator and a character called Mrs Smith.

The actress has also been on The Bill, Casualty and Holby City and has worked both on stage and on the radio.

Doreen Mantle as Joy Fishwick

John took out elderly Joy Fishwick, Colin's mum, when he spilled the beans to her about what he'd done.

Joy (Doreen Mantle) was so shocked she suffered chest pains and John trued to shut her up by putting his hand over her mouth – and she died.

Actress Doreen is well known for playing Jean Warboys in One Foot In The Grave and has been in dozens of TV series, including Doctors, Holby City, The Mimic and Father Brown.

The star who is now 95, has also been in films such as 55 Steps and Late Bloomers.

In 2019 she appeared in the short film, Blind and she was the lollipop lady in the show Jam & Jerusalem.

Helen Flanagan as Rosie Webster

John didn't kill off Rosie (Helen Flanagan) but she did end up getting kidnapped.

Actress Helen left the soap in 2012 although she did later return for a bit before going on maternity leave.

The 31-year-old became a huge star thanks to her time on the cobbles and has gone on to be a reality TV favourite, appearing in the likes of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and Celebrity Wedding Planner.

She now has three children with her partner Scott Sinclair.
