What Eva next... Street love rat’s final showdown
LOVE rat Aidan Connor finally gets his comeuppance this week as the Corrie love triangle hits a barnstorming climax.
All hell will break loose on Aidan and Eva’s wedding day – and actor Shayne Ward admits playing the rogue has been “wicked”.
Aidan is due to wed Eva – actress Catherine Tyldesley, 33 – thinking she is pregnant, when she is not.
His ex-mistress Maria, played by Samia Longchambon, 35, is set to gatecrash the ceremony – unaware revenge-seeking Eva knows about the affair. One scene shows Aidan reeling as Eva comes into their room. It promises to be classic Corrie fireworks and former X Factor winner Shayne, 32, is loving it. He said: “I’ve had a wicked time, it’s been so much fun. It’s
been a brilliant love triangle. It’s down to the writers if they see any way back for Aidan and Eva. I won’t complain.
“I’ve had an affair with two women! A lot of people want me with Maria but a lot of older guys want me with Eva.”
Shayne says his real-life girlfriend, Hollyoaks actress Sophie Austin, 33, laughs about his Street shenanigans.
The couple became parents themselves last December.
And of jibes about his girth since quitting pop for acting, Shayne said: “The bigger I get, the better the cuddles for my daughter.”
