Coronation Street: Carla fights for her life following Bistro raid

No-nonsense Carla tackles thugs, only to be left in a critical condition


The life of Carla Connor (Alison King) will be left hanging in the balance next week following a botched raid at the Bistro.


Beleaguered Carla will have to undergo an emergency operation after being dragged along the street by the thieves’ getaway vehicle.

In the run-up to the robbery, Carla will be seen meeting with Robert at the Bistro to talk about their recent one-night stand.

Both are unaware that Tracy is hiding in the kitchen and has heard every word. After Robert leaves, two thugs enter the Bistro intent on robbing the place – but instead of coming to Carla’s aid Tracy leaves her to her fate. 

When the robbers grab her handbag, Carla gives chase but ends up in mortal danger after becoming entangled with the raiders’ car.

With her nemesis’s life hanging in the balance, will Tracy blow the secret about Carla and Robert’s fling to Nick? Whatever happens, it looks like the feud between Carla and Tracy has been well and truly reignited, just in time for Alison King’s eventual departure from the ITV soap.

Speaking recently to about her upcoming exit, actress Alison King said: “I am actually leaving. It’s been put out there that I’m taking a sabbatical, but I’m not. They’ve very graciously left the doors open for me to come back if I want to. And I haven’t ruled that out. But this is a new chapter for me.”
