Coronation Street fans baffled by Ray murder ‘plot hole’ after Debbie confession

Coronation Street's Debbie Webster confessed she'd murdered Ray Crosby during Monday's episode, pleading guilty to killing him in self-defence.

However, certain fans were left scratching their heads following the admission, pointing out Debbie (Sue Devaney) was potentially too slight to move a body singlehandedly.

The sleazy businessman has been missing from Weatherfield since last Friday, when he got involved in a tussle in the bistro with Abi Franklin.

After Abi (Sally Carman) confronted Ray (Mark Frost) with evidence of his crimes, he spiked her drink, leading her to collapse in an alleyway.

He then dragged her into the bistro, where Debbie leapt to her defence, calling an ambulance and saving her life.

Ray hadn't been seen since – leading to speculation he was six feet under.

On Monday's episode, Abi returned from the hospital and headed straight to the bistro, only to run into Debbie, jogging her memory of the drugging.

After a heated conversation, Debbie confessed she'd killed Ray, explaining he'd bundled her into the boot of a car after the scenes in the bistro.

Realising he was about to kill her, Debbie claimed she'd struck Ray as soon as he opened the boot, only for the property dealer to fall to the ground.

With Ray dead, Debbie claimed she rolled his body into a nearby river, letting his corpse sink and removing all traces of her DNA from the body.

Watching from home, certain viewers were convinced Debbie had blood on her hands, but couldn't understand the mechanics of the body disposal.

One Twitter user said: "I won't believe Debbie killed ray That's just too silly."

"Are we expected to believe that 4 foot Debbie killed Ray & disposed of his body ?," wrote a second.

And a third chimed: "So just to get this straight…..Debbie who looks about 4 ft 10 tall killed Ray and has moved his body?"

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
