Mechanic Luke Britton (Dean Fagan) is to set his sights on Carla Barlow (Alison King) in the weeks to come, despite having already made a play for Katie Armstrong (Georgia May Foote).
In scenes to be shown in the coming weeks, Luke will be seen flirting with an oblivious Carla when she drops her car off at the garage and will later insist on walking her to her flat as a jealous Peter (Chris Gascoyne) watches on.
Speaking about the frisson between the two characters, actor Dean Fagan recently commented: “The more we talk, the more I get to know her and get to feel for her and her situation. Obviously with everything Carla’s been through, there’s the essence of a rebound, in her getting over Peter.”
You can see how Dean’s flirtations pan out when Coronation Street airs these scenes on Thursday 3 July.
