What has Mark Frost said about Ray’s downfall?

Speaking to Inside Soap recently, Mark Frost hinted his "arrogance" may well lead to his downfall.

He revealed: "So I think there are people who are definitely out to get him.

"Abi is certainly out for vengeance, that's kind of obvious – and Kevin's none too pleased with Ray, either.

"But I think more and more people are beginning to become aware of just who he is – he'd slipped under the radar until now. His own arrogance may also cause him trouble in the future…"

Does Ray manage to bulldoze the cobbles?

It’s not yet clear whether Ray will succeed in demolishing the houses on the street, but the residents go to great lengths to stop his evil plan next week. 

When the residents spot bulldozers approaching to knock down the brewery, which they'd been hoping to have listed as an historical building to stop Ray's evil plan, they defiantly set up camp in front of the building. 

The next morning, they celebrate stalling Ray by sleeping outside the brewery. 

But they’re horrified when a huge long-arm digger rears its head and Ray’s minions start to dismantle their camp. 

Ken stands in the bulldozer’s path refusing to move while Abi jumps into the cab of a digger.

But when she loses control of the long arm, it smashes down on a substation and knocks everyone’s power out.

Why is Ray trying to destroy the cobbles?

Speaking to Metro.co.uk about why his character wants to destroy the cobbles, Mark revealed: "I think he does see himself an empire builder, so he is looking to purchase property and get his business to grow exponentially.

Speaking about Ray’s dark side, 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.

He added: "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."
