Aidan and Alya join forces Corrie
AIDAN’S LOST EVA AND HIS BUSINESS TO ADAM! BUT A NEW FUTURE BECKONS WITH ALYA... UNTIL HE MESSES IT UP! SHAYNE WARD REVEALS ALL...
He’s lost the life – and the ‘baby’ – he thought he was going to have with Eva, the woman he truly loved. He’s lost his business, too, so it’s no surprise Aidan Connor is at rock bottom. ‘He hits the bottle,’ Aidan actor Shayne Ward tells Soaplife. ‘There’s nothing in his head that’s saying, “Where did I go wrong?” because it was inevitable. It’s called karma, but I do think that by telling Eva the truth before the wedding, he thought that would be the end of it. He never expected in his wildest dreams that she was lying about the baby and plotting with Adam Barlow to clear out the factory!’ So, when Aidan comes face to face with Adam, he simply can’t control his feelings.
What happens when Aidan and Adam bump into each other?
Aidan snaps at Adam because he can see he’s lost the woman he loves to the guy he despises. Cunning Adam wanted the factory from the get-go, so he started a vendetta against Aidan and now Aidan’s devastated he’s lost Eva to him, too.
Does Aidan blame himself?
Well, it’s Aidan’s own fault, but he doesn't like that Adam is goading him. Aidan runs at Adam because he’s lost everything now. He’s also trying to figure out how he’ll convince people that Adam cleared the factory because there’s no evidence.
Has Adam underestimated Aidan?
Aidan won’t let this lie, regardless of what happens to the factory. Aidan’s got to get some sort of revenge on Adam, not just for his business but for the workers.
What happens next?
Johnny Connor intervenes and gives son Aidan a pep talk, which makes Aidan think about starting a business again. In fact, he immediately thinks of Alya Nazir. She’s great with designs and he’s eager to get things back on track, but he messes it up.
How does he mess it up?
In his eagerness to get things back on track and prove to people that he can do this, he makes a pass at Alya! She’s beautiful and he gets lost in the moment.
What advice would you give to Aidan if he was your friend?
I’d do what Johnny does and give him a pep talk. I’d tell Aidan he’s better than this. Who knows whether he’ll get his girl back and manage to start again? But I’d encourage him to get his business back first – and get people back in their jobs.
