Who is Ray Crosby in Corrie and how did he cause the sinkhole?

Ray Crosby (Mark Frost) is mentioned a number of times in Coronation Street tonight as the aftermath of the sinkhole collapse begins.

As it’s been a while since we’ve seen or heard about Ray, we thought it would be best to give you a quick reminder on who the creepy businessman is and why he’s responsible for the sinkhole.

Who is Ray Crosby?

First arriving in 2019, Ray enlisted the help of Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) to oversee a franchise of restaurants within his hotels.

Eventually, when Ray revealed his true colours, Michelle turned against him after he propositioned her for sex.

Ray propositioned Alya (Sair Khan) in a similar fashion, but after realising what he was doing, she worked with Abi (Sally Carman) and Bethany (Lucy Fallon) and exposed him as a sex pest.

How did Ray cause the sinkhole?

Ray secretly began purchasing properties on Coronation Street in a bid to build a new hotel development.

During this storyline, Ray bribed people on the council and development teams, as well as blackmailing and lying to residents so they could sell their properties to him.

Ray successfully created the sinkhole in the Platt’s garden and manipulated David (Jack P Shepherd) into selling his house.

This caused the Platt family to move into one of Ray’s hotels and the old estate where Shona (Julia Goulding) used to live.

What is Ray doing now?

Ray is behind bars after his lies and attempt at raping Faye Windass (Ellie Leach) were exposed.

David and Debbie (Sue Devaney) mention Ray in tonight’s episodes, but will he get the blame for the destruction caused last week?
