ITV has released some new images highlighting the upcoming romance between Ryan Connor (Sol Heras) and Katy Armstrong (Georgia May Foote).
In the coming weeks, viewers will see smooth-talking Ryan setting his sights on the young mum at Katy’s friend’s party. But when Katy then gets a job at the kebab shop, it’s only a matter of time before she’s tempted by the Weatherfield bad boy and strays from her relationship with Chesney (Sam Aston).
Said Heras: “Obviously she’s got Joseph and she’s with Chesney, so Ryan’s only ever seen her play the mother role but suddenly he sees her dressed up for the first time and out in his environment. He realises what a gorgeous girl she is.
“He manages to sort it for her to get a job at the kebab shop and, yes, he probably does have an ulterior motive. It’s one of those classic moments where they both go to pick something up and their eyes just meet. They have that couple of seconds look then they both go in for the kiss. It’s a mutual thing - for once Ryan isn’t the villain.”
Foote added: “Katy hasn’t really had that teenage wild time because she settled down so early with Chesney. Her head is really turned by Ryan - she and Chesney have got a bit comfortable and her life is not very exciting. She knows it’s wrong but she just can’t help herself.”
