Carla Connor is set to get tongues wagging when she returns to Coronation Street this Christmas – not least of all her own, as she locks lips and enjoys a passionate fling with a surprising local.
We already revealed how Alison King’s character would be having a love interest that may take fans aback and with Kate Oates recently also suggesting that Daniel Osbourne is about to embark on an unexpected fling, it doesn’t take much to do the sums.
Reports have now fuelled the speculation as Daniel will seemingly seek to wind up Peter Barlow about what he and Carla have been getting up to following her comeback – but we are sworn to secrecy over exactly what plays out.
Alison suggested when speaking about the storyline that Carla’s fling would be brief and a means to achieve something else that she wants as she insisted that Carla isn’t on the lookout for a relationship right now. However, with sparks simmering between Carla and Peter, will their chemistry resurface and bring heartache for Toyah Battersby?
It isn’t just Carla’s love life which is dominating her return storyline however – in fact, a much more pressing issue is taking dominance as she returns with a whopper of a secret and one which she can only initially confide in her good friend Roy Cropper.
Carla returns to the Street to be with her family over the festive season – but why is she sticking to soft drinks? And can Roy support her with her secret?
Meanwhile, her passion with Daniel may well prove a decent distraction from her other issues if it does indeed come to pass but fans will just have to tune in to discover exactly what is in store for Carla.
Alison King returns to our screens on Friday 22nd December at 7:30pm on ITV.
