Catherine Tyldesley interview: Eva's fight for her child

How does Eva feel about Toyah going back on the pact they made?
Initially she was completely shocked because she could see how desperate Toyah has always been for a family but at the same time she is super relieved because deep down her mum instincts have kicked in and she wants to be a mum to Susie. She is also feeling the fear because all of a sudden she’s like, “I am going to be a mum now,”  but the overwhelming feeling is relief. 

If Toyah hadn’t have revealed the truth do you think Eva would have done?
Yes, one hundred percent. It was always going to come out and the chances were that it was going to be Eva because there was no way that she could have carried on, her maternal instinct is too strong. 

Why does Eva decide to come clean to Adam about her pregnancy?
She does genuinely care about him. She doesn't love him like she did with Aidan but she’s got a huge soft spot for him and he is offering that shoulder to cry on. At the moment, to have that offer in her life and that support is brilliant for her. 

Is Eva ready to step up to the plate and become a mum to Susie?
Yes she is and because it is Aidan’s baby and she’s lost Aidan and Susie looks so much like him, she just feels the need to be with Susie constantly and have that last little reminder of the man she loved.

What happens when Johnny storms in to the pub and demands answers?
When Johnny storms in to the pub, Eva can tell straight away that he knows but she has always wanted to tell The Connors the truth. She has said that from the moment that Aidan took his own life because she said that it was a game-changer and that they need to know. 

What’s Eva’s reaction?
Although she is terrified and not sure how Johnny is going to react, she tells them exactly what has happened and hopes for the best. She wants Susie to know who her father was and she wants Susie to know her family and be around The Connors.

What happens when Eva finds out Johnny has started custody proceedings?
She is completely shocked because when she first talks to Johnny he seems to react quite well and she thinks that everything is going to be okay and that they are going to be fair but she is unaware that he is hiding this overwhelming anger towards her. But she is a fighter and she is her mother’s daughter; she can give as good as she gets which surprises Johnny.

Is she ready to fight for Susie?
She is so ready, she has already given her up once she is not prepared to lose her little girl again. She is ready to play hard ball, much to everyone’s shock.

What advice would you give Eva?
If it was me, nobody would ever take my little boy away, I would stop at nothing.
