CORONATION Street’s Norris Cole pulled off one last surprise from beyond the grave – by tricking his friends into decapitating the paperboy.
The newsagent – who was played by actor Malcolm Hebden in the ITV soap – died of a stroke last week while trying to dig out gossip on Claudia’s affair with home boss Charles.
At his funeral Norris surprised everyone with a personal letter to be read out by Roy Cropper.
In it he left a few memories, revealed the funeral he had planned was full of things he hated and he dropped a few secrets.
He ended it by claiming there was a secret hidden in the Kabin’s paperboy statue.
However all was not as it seemed as his friends found out after having decapitated the paperboy with a chainsaw.
“There’s nothing in it,” shouted Brian as he looked into the paper boy’s sad collapsed body.
“Well I thought it was a peculiar place to hide anything anyway,” said Rita.
“Norris always hated that. He used to say its eyes were following him when he was sweeping.”
Then as they all stood around slightly sozzled and confused with a decapitated paperboy at their feet, Freda realised what had happened.
Laughing she said: “This is just another trick.
“Norris hated that thing and he knew that we would have to destroy it if he said there was something inside it.”
Fans were in hysterics at Norris’ final impact on the cobbles.
One wrote: "Nice one Norris."
A second said: "Hahaha Norris had them in knots over nothing."
Another added: “'WHAT FINAL LEAP?” “It’s red rum” oh my god stop I’m dying."
After ending the paperboy’s existence on the cobbles, Mary Taylor led all of Norris’ friends in a song.
The camera panned over many pictures of Norris through the years for one final goodbye.
