Is Sally Webster going to be Ray Crosby’s next target in Corrie? Debbie persuades her to sell her house

DEBBIE Webster goes to great lengths to convince Sally Webster to sell her house next week in Coronation Street. 

But is Debbie Ray Crosby’s secret new business partner? Here’s the lowdown…

Is Sally going to be Ray’s next target in Corrie?

With Sally set to announce she’s been offered the full asking price for her house next week, it’s possible she’s Ray’s next target. 

Official spoilers have revealed that Debbie will pitch neighbours Geoff and Sally against each other next week after telling Abi she’s lost everything. 

Debbie will suggest a garden party to Sally in celebration of her new chiminea. 

Unable to resist, Sally takes Debbie’s advice and hosts a party, but disaster strikes when Geoff appears and causes a scene. 

Later in the week, Debbie stirs things further by telling Geoff that Sally has been slagging him off. 

An angry Geoff rushes round and bursts into Tim and Sally’s, waving around a huge spade. 

Later, Debbie can hardly hide her joy when Sally tells her she’s selling her house to get away from Geoff. 

Is Debbie working for Ray in Corrie?

Viewers are convinced that Debbie will turn out to be Ray’s mysterious funder going by the name of Roxy. 

With spoilers revealing that Debbie will admit she’s lost everything to Abi next week, might she turn to the dark side in the hope of scrabbling back her fortune?

With Coronation Street bosses keeping shtum, viewers will have to tune in to find out.

Why is Ray buying up properties in Corrie?

Corrie viewers know that the sleazy hotelier is on a mission to destroy the cobbles by buying up the properties one by one.

Ray has already got control of the Bistro, the garage buildings, David’s house and Gary’s factory. 

And now it seems he could be after Sally Webster’s house.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk about his character Ray’s evil plan, actor Mark Frost said: "I think he does see himself an empire builder, so he is looking to purchase property and get his business to grow exponentially.

"I think what’s going to come as a surprise is just what means he’s willing to go to — what lengths he’s willing to go to — to get his plans put his plans in place, and the odds that’s going to put him at with the rest of the Weatherfield community."

Talking about why his character wants to destroy the cobbles, Mark added: "He’s got no familial links. He sees people and communities as pawns. I think to a certain extent there is that breed of property developer, who in order to get plans drawn up and disband communities, they can’t surely look at people as individuals and human beings.

"For him, sentimentality is a weakness. It’s something he hates and its probably something from his childhood. We could look at his attitude towards women and maybe his mother, but I think its to do with that.

"I think he sees the bon ami and the neighbourly love in Weatherfield and people looking out for each other. I think he has a distaste for that.

"I think it probably burns him in a way because he is such a loner, and he doesn’t feel that. I think he’s quite prepared to set fire to all of that."
