The villainous businessman was left celebrating in Friday night's double bill of the soap as he was found not guilty of raping Carla Connor (Alison King) and walked out of court a free man.
However, Frank won't be getting the last laugh as tensions will continue to rise on the cobbles in upcoming episodes - resulting in his death.
Over the next few weeks, vengeance will be on the minds of several characters as the dramatic consequences of Frank's acquittal play out.
Even Frank's current girlfriend Sally Webster (Sally Dynevor) will finally see his true colours, leaving her feeling humiliated and terrified of what he is capable of.
Throughout February, Coronation Street fans will see Frank become a hate figure in Weatherfield as he tries to make Carla pay for dragging him through the courts.
Andrew Lancel, who plays Frank, commented: "Erase and eradicate, that is his plan. And he will go about it in the worst possible way. He is enjoying tormenting Carla, he is enjoying turning the screw.
"His true colours are finally showing through, and no-one is safe in his scheming head. But he doesn't for one moment think his life might be in danger - he is too arrogant and too cocky to think that could ever happen to him!"
Coronation Street chiefs have confirmed that Frank's lifeless body will be found at the factory, following days of arguments and confrontations with his various associates and enemies.
However, with so many suspects in the frame for the crime, police and viewers alike will be left baffled over who the killer was.
As the mystery unravels, though, events later reach a dramatic climax and the culprit is finally unmasked.
Coronation Street continues on Monday at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV1.
