The behaviour of Karl Munro (John Michie) looks set to get increasingly creepy in the weeks to come as Stella (Michelle Collins) reveals that he has tried to kidnap her.
Following the abduction attempt, Stella is incensed when Karl then shows up at the Rovers and she orders him to leave. But when Gloria (Sue Johnston) leaps to his defence, Stella snaps and lets the assembled regulars know about her ex’s actions.
As can be seen by the images released by ITV, Stella’s boyfriend Jason (Ryan Thomas) doesn’t take the news well and vents his anger on Karl.
Viewers can see the scenes on Wednesday 6 March at 7.30pm on ITV.
