Coronation Street producer Phil Collinson has praised Becky Hindley for her performance in the role of unhinged Charlotte Hoyle.
Charlotte has recently been making John Stape's (Graeme Hawley) life hell following their involvement in Colin Fishwick's death.
Earlier this week, fans thought John had killed Charlotte after he attacked her with a hammer.
However, during the live transmission is was revealed that Hoyle had a weak pulse.
Collinson told Digital Spy: "I think that Becky Hindley has done an amazing job. They're always great parts to play, the bunny boilers, and Becky has really embraced that. I think she's just played it brilliantly.
"I think what she's done so brilliantly is make us feel Charlotte's pain. She isn't just a bunny boiler - she's a really lonely, heartbroken person."
He added: "Colin Fishwick dying in front of her eyes was probably the most perversely exciting thing that's ever happened to her!
"She became desperate to hang onto the drama that came from that night. I think it's been great telly: you take people like John and Fiz - who are really loved characters - and then you do something this extraordinary to them. I think you just want to watch it!"
