This is the moment when Coronation Street's Les and Dennis are involved in a car crash with a drink-driver, spelling heartache for Janice.

Viewers can see drama unfold during three episodes broadcast over New Year.

The action begins when Les, still devastated by his wife Janice walking out on him for his best friend Dennis, tries to kill himself inside his taxi.

But as exhaust fumes pour into the car, his rambling final words are heard over his radio back in Coronation Street and Dennis sets off across town to find him.

Discovering him still alive, Dennis jumps in the driver's seat and sets off to the hospital in a bid to save the life of his love rival.

Moments later tragedy strikes when a drink-driver slams into the pair, leaving Dennis with fatal injuries.

As the drama unfolds, back in the Rover's Return the regulars celebrate the New Year, unaware of Dennis' death.

In one scene, Dennis manages to tell Janice he loves her before he dies.

A Granada spokesman said: "The love affair between Janice and Dennis has really captured people's imaginations and this dramatic climax will ensure that there is not a dry eye in the house."
