After it was revealed that the Weatherfield legend would be returning to the soap opera, fans of Coronation Street believe they may have spoiled one of Spider’s upcoming plotlines.
25 years after his initial step onto the cobblestones, eco-warrior Spider Nugent (Martin Hancock) is scheduled to return to Weatherfield, according to Corrie executives.
An astute soap opera viewer has now reported seeing a food waste campaign poster during a recent tour of the Manchester set, which they believe may be related to a future plot.
On Monday, June 19, they uploaded a black and white image of the poster to Reddit for analysis by fans who suspected it might be related to one of Spider’s upcoming storylines.
Fans of Corrie believe the alleged poster may be related to Spider Nugent’s return.
The purported poster’s title reads, “Reuse Refuse,” followed by the words, “Saving Weatherfield from food waste.”
The date “Launching 5/8/22” at the bottom could be a clue as to when the potential eco-storyline would be appearing on TV.
“Spotted this little poster on the Coronation Street set tour,” the fan wrote. Maybe a component of a later plot?”
Perhaps connected to Spider’s comeback, a supporter retorted.

Another agreed: “I wondered this too!”
“If so, I can see it being like Maria’s climate change storyline,” a third person remarked.
Another simply added: “Spider’s returning? Yay!”
