Coronation Street star Rob Mallard has been spilling the beans on his character Daniel Osbourne’s upcoming fling with Carla Connor.
“She sees something missing in him. He sees something missing in her,” the actor told ITV’s This Morning. “It’s had a nice response online. I wasn’t sure how they’d take it, but it seems people are quite keen.”
Asked why Carla is going to be cosying up to Daniel, Mallard – currently nominated for Best Newcomer at the National Television Awards – replied: “She’s making her way through the Barlows.”
News of Daniel and Carla’s relationship first broke late last year with a Corrie source telling The Sun:
“On her return to the cobbles this Christmas, Carla will really stir things up by sleeping with Daniel, Pete’s half-brother.
“Peter will find out when Daniel starts boasting about how steamy things are getting between him and Carla. Peter tries to play it like he doesn’t care, but he clearly does and Daniel takes great pleasure in winding him up, knowing their history together.”
