Coronation Street aired its devastating and dramatic scenes on ITV in April 2017, with several major storylines unfolding.
Coronation Street has changed a lot in the past five years, with characters leaving, newcomers joining, and families continuing to live on from the past.
Since 2017 in Weatherfield, there are new romances, new secrets, heartbreaking deaths and life-changing decisions.
This month five years ago, a villain returned in a shocking prison break, when another character was hiding a dark secret.
Another newcomer is horribly grooming a teenage character leading to nasty scenes.
Characters around this time who have left include Rosie and Sophie Webster, Rob Donovan and the evil Pat Phelan who can forget.
Liz McDonald, Kate Connor, Seb Franklin and Robert Preston also remained around the cobblestones, along with Michelle Connor, Johnny Connor and many other familiar faces who had left.
But what happened around this time in 2017, and does it affect the show today?
Rob served time in prison for the murder of Tina, and in April 2017 he escaped before tracking down his ex Tracy, and asking her to run away with him.
Tracy kept Rob’s return a secret and plotted to elope with her daughter Amy, then they would go into hiding – but just weeks later Tracy was arrested for assaulting her father, Ken Barlow following a false confession .
Rob’s attempt to help Tracy got him re-arrested.
Elsewhere, and police are still investigating the assault on Ken, who was pushed down the stairs in a disarray.
Adam Barlow found himself in the frame for a crime, actually committed by Daniel, with his cousin Amy dropping him in there with the police.
The accusations were tearing the Barlows apart, before the truth came out a month later.
Another big storyline on the show at this point is that Bethany Platt is groomed by her older and controlling boyfriend Nathan Curtis.
Bethany has been drawn into a romance by a lowly character, and she has no idea he is part of a human trafficking ring.
After turning Bethany against her family and isolating her, Nathan abused Bethany and convinced her that they had a healthy relationship.
Bethany was later raped by Nathan’s friends, while Nathan was also violent with her – with her family reeling from her ordeal.
