Aidan lays into Johnny Corrie
Aidan feels betrayed by his dad, Then he kicks off A very dangerous feud!
Story So far
Love rat Aidan Connor saw his cheated-on fiancée, Eva Price, secure their flat, while crooked lawyer Adam Barlow robbed Underworld.
Result: Aidan’s sleeping rough in a stripped-bare factory, and he’s getting the blame for Underworld’s closure and the entire workforce losing their jobs.
Aidan has fought back a bit, though, when he tried to ensure eager Adam didn’t land a new client for his legal firm.
There’s good news when Aidan learns the insurance money for the factory has come through.
‘Aidan’s delighted because he thinks he can start rebuilding Underworld,’ says our Corrie source. ‘But Johnny soon makes it clear he has other ideas…
‘Connor Senior tells a gobsmacked Aidan he won’t be investing the payout in the factory. Instead, he’ll use it for his and wife Jenny’s retirement in Spain!’
Aidan’s livid and he tears into Jenny, calling her a gold-digger and blaming her for the decision! And, when Johnny defends her, Aidan rips into him, too.
The father-and-son argument is not pleasant and it leaves the two at odds.
Meanwhile, the feud between Aidan and Adam continues, and it’s the details of Rita Tanner’s flat sale that Aidan thinks may give him a chance to hurt Adam.
‘Aidan realises Adam hasn’t been acting within the letter of the law over Rita’s flat sale by ensuring it doesn’t go to Colin,’ says our insider. ‘Aidan plans to secure the contract details from his hated rival’s files.’
As we report on page 31, that doesn’t go very well, thanks to Rosie Webster.
But, as Aidan thinks Adam’s business partner, Todd Grimshaw, knew about Adam’s plans to ruin him, Aidan reckons that also makes Todd fair game…
So Aidan tells Todd’s boyfriend, Billy Mayhew, that he’s up to no good, which doesn’t go down well with Todd.
‘That escalates a tit-for-tat feud,’ continues our mole. ‘Todd tries to ensure that Aidan’s bid to secure a loan for the factory leaves Aidan embarrassed, but it doesn’t have the desired effect.
‘So Todd ups the stakes and, after watching Aidan and Alya Nazir load up their van, he takes drastic measures…’
We’re not allowed to reveal exactly what ‘drastic measures’ Todd takes to deal with Aidan. But, says Aidan actor Shayne Ward, it must be serious as it ensures ‘Aidan’s really set on a warpath!’ And going to war against ‘Tricky’ Todd and dodgy Adam without the support of his dad could mean lots more trouble.
But Aidan could soon have an ally to lean on if Johnny does make an exit… as Carla Connor actress Alison King is back on the cobbles and she’ll return on screen at Christmas.
‘It’s amazing to have Ali back,’ says Shayne. ‘We’ve done a few scenes together already. It’s great for the Connors and we’re all buzzing!’ Let’s just hope Aidan survives his current feuding long enough to make sure he can take full advantage
of his sister’s many smarts!
