AFTER being accused of murdering his former lover, Stu Carpenter is adamant on proving he's innocent.
But not everybody in Coronation Street is ready to hear him out as he's attacked by a gang of lads next week.
The former homeless man played by Bill Fellows was previously thrown behind bars as it was revealed he had murdered his former lover Charlie.
However, it soon became clear he was actually innocent and driven by police to make a confession after being starved and interrogated for multiple hours on end.
Convinced of his innocence, Yasmeen Nazir decided to stand by her man and took him back into the Speed Daal kitchen.
Unfortunately, upon his return and as Yasmeen's grandson Zeedan (portrayed by Qasim Akhtar) will notice next week, Stu has had a negative impact on business in the restaurant.

While behind bars, he continued to maintain his innocence but his family – more particularly his daughter Bridget – never wanted to hear another word of him.
In recent scenes of the Manchester-based soap, Stu told Bridget he'd do anything to prove he's never committed the crime, while Yasmeen is ready to fund a solicitor to help him.
