Coronation Street fans convinced they know who is targeting Dee-Dee with death threats

Coronation Street enthusiasts are piecing together the mystery of who's behind the sinister death threats to Dee-Dee Bailey.

The solicitor has been tirelessly working to secure bail for Roy Cropper, who's been accused of murdering Lauren Bolton. Despite Lauren's disappearance months ago and the discovery of substantial blood evidence in her apartment, fans know that Roy is innocent and someone else is behind the grim act.

Now, as Dee-Dee faces a barrage of unnerving calls and emails amidst her efforts in court, viewers are convinced they've cracked the case on who's targeting her.

Social media is abuzz with theories, with one viewer suggesting on Twitter: "Does anyone else think that Joel is dodgy and might have something to do with Lauren's disappearance or the heavy breathing phonecalls to Dee-Dee? #Corrie," while another chimed in: "Is Joel sending the hate emails? #Corrie."

Another confidently stated: "Think we've all guessed that's it's Joel. #Corrie.", reports the Mirror.

Amidst the drama, Dee-Dee's bond with Joel has been strengthening, even after his deceit about having a family came to light.

Sharing his perspective on the storyline, actor Callum Lill said: "The thing I like about this, he's done a wrong thing but I think, not the right reasons, he's not meant to harm (Dee-Dee), he's just meant to have a good relationship with her," and added about the upcoming developments, "He's gonna have to grovel and explain himself but what I like about it is it's not black and white, it's kind of grey and in the middle."

Continuing on the complexities of his character's relationship, he expressed: "I hope what the audience enjoys is watching two young people trying to navigate quite a realistic relationship. It's not Prince Charming and they're gonna sail off into the sunset, he's got baggage and he's made mistakes and he's human. He's not perfect."

When asked if there was a chance for reconciliation between him and Dee-Dee, he concluded: "Yeah I would. I think Dee-Dee is an incredible character and a very proud woman and strong woman. He needs to do his grovelling, he absolutely needs to do his grovelling and he needs to make it up to her. But I want to see them both happy. I'd love to see a Dee-Dee and Joel wedding."

Back in February, fans thought there was more to the story after Joel’s lies started to unravel. Dee-Dee was heartbroken when she discovered what her new boyfriend had been keeping from her.

After weeks of acting suspiciously, Joel was forced to admit the truth. He'd been meeting up with a mystery woman named Emily, and finally confessed everything to Dee-Dee on Wednesday 21 February.

He revealed two big secrets: that he was secretly married and also had a baby daughter. Emily is his wife, but they're said to be separated and planning to divorce.
