Coronation Street: Future faces of the factory
After a tempestuous reign at Underworld Carla (Alison King) is about to set sail, leaving Connor family Aidan and Johnny at the helm. But as Carla dreams of her happy ever after will it all be plain sailing for those that remain at the factory?
As you’ll see from this exclusive picture just received from ITV, factory boss Aidan (Shayne Ward) is firmly setting his sights on Eva’s charms. With their relationship now firmly cemented what will Coronation Street’s hottest new couple bring to the business?
Aidan’s dad and business partner Johnny Connor (Richard Hawley) also appears to have his eye on a member of staff - Jenny Bradley (Sally Ann Matthews). But with her troubled past will a liaison with Jenny bring more drama to the factory?
As Carla’s wedding to Nick (Ben Price) draws closer it’s all smiles. However the smiles mask the hidden pain and secrets that many of the workers are hiding.
Carla’s (Alison King) happily planning her big day and her move to Devon. But with Tracy (Kate Ford) blackmailing Carla, using her knowledge of Carla’s one night stand with Robert (Tristan Gemmill), it’s a fragile happiness that could be shattered at any moment.
Carla’s not the only Connor for whom the wedding bells are ringing. Kate (Faye Brookes) was all set to marry fiancee Caz (Rhea Bailey). However a forbidden kiss with friend Sophie (Brooke Vincent) has left Kate dreaming about what else could be. With Sophie making her feelings clear, Kate will have to choose between a new life with Sophie or her future with fiancee Caz.
Izzy’s (Cherylee Houston) embarked on a dangerous path, using cannabis as a form of pain relief. The health benefits outweigh the risks for Izzy but when the law catches up with her will her future at Underworld be called into question?
Sean’s (Antony Cotton) life has been heavenly since vicar Billy (Dan Brocklebank) came into his orbit. However when someone from Billy’s past turns up on the street, the secrets Billy tries to hold onto will threaten his relationship with Sean.
Fiz (Jennie McAlpine) is back at work in a bid to make ends meet. With the debts continuing to pile up at home can Fiz and Tyrone (Alan Halsall) pull together or will financial pressures tear them apart?
Sinead’s (Katie McGlynn) on cloud nine as she lives out her modelling dream at Underworld. With Auntie Beth (Lisa George) at her side her new career seems to be going from strength to strength. But will Chesney’s (Sam Aston) growing jealous streak dampen her spirits?
With Carla out of the picture Alya sees herself stepping into her shoes. They’re big shoes to fill, has Alya got what it takes or will Underworld business remain a family affair?
And newly elected Weatherfield councillor Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dynevor) will be taking snobbery to new heights. Will her position alienate her from her fellow machinists and put more pressure on her marriage to happy-go-lucky window cleaner Tim (Joe Duttine)?
Whatever happens there’ll be a lot more going on than just knicker stitching at Underworld this spring. Tune into Coronation Street on ITV on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
