Shayne Ward says that sparks will fly between his Coronation Street character Aidan Connor and recent returnee Eva Price.
“He’s definitely noticed her,” explains the actor. “The thing with Aidan is that he’s not really ready to settle down. He’s a little bit of a jack the lad. He’s a respectful guy but he wants to play the field a bit. However, when he sees Eva, it’s lust at first sight for both of them.”
Eva will be seen making a big impression on Aidan next week when she asks for her old job back at Underworld. When he says that Eva will have to go through the proper channels, she ends up demanding that he interview her. It does seem, though, that Eva will definitely be reinstalled on the factory floor.
“She’s a gorgeous girl, but it’s never a good thing to get with an employee, is it?” adds Ward. “So we’ll have to see how that pans out.”
As for how the rest of the dynamics in the workplace are going, Corrie’s latest young businessman says that Weatherfield will soon feel the impact of the extended Connor clan.
“I think the Connors are going to cause quite a stir. They want to run the factory. They want to run the street!” he laughs. “The Connors are such a tight-knit unit and it’s great to see more of the family. They’re a force to be reckoned with and they want to make an impression.”
