carla Home for XMAS!
Aidan Connor’s going to think all his Christmases have come at once when his Coronation Street-wise half-sister, Carla Connor, turns up next month… because we reckon she’ll be the person who helps him resurrect Underworld.
Recovering alcoholic Peter Barlow, though, might be driven to drink again when his ex-wife reappears! And how will Carla feel about Peter having a baby with Toyah Battersby, when his drunken violence contributed to the loss of their baby? Very bitter, we think…
Corrie producer Kate Oates says: ‘The Carla that returns is very different to the
Carla who left the Street a couple of years ago.’
That Carla was broken, fleeing her disastrous wedding to Nick Tilsley.
‘I wanted to bring back that feisty side to Carla’s character,’ adds Kate.
Carla is just what Aidan needs, but what we can’t wait to see, though, is the reunion between Carla and Roy Cropper. ‘Perhaps you could learn to love yourself as much as we all love you,’ Roy told Carla when she left in 2016. Has she?
And has Carla learned to love someone else so she doesn’t return alone?
