Life is one long list of trauma and misery for Carla Connor and 2016 will prove to be no different for the factory boss.
In the wake of finding out that Johnny is actually her dad and cheating on fiancé Nick with Robert Preston, Carla will next find herself at the mercy of thugs who are intent on raiding the Bistro.
The shock new storyline – which will be broadcast later this month – will see Carla cowering as she’s threatened with a baseball bat. And when she gives chase to the thieves, she’s knocked over on the cobbles, where she’ll lie motionless and smeared with blood. You can see footage from the accident in a new promo on the Coronation Street website here.
Actress Alison King is set to take a break from Coronation Street in 2016, but are the soap’s bosses plotting to do the unthinkable and kill Carla off? It’s certainly not looking good, is it?
