A character never returns to soap without a skeleton or two in their closest and from the moment that Carla Connor graces the cobbles once again in Coronation Street this Christmas Day, it’s clear that she has a secret.
With Aidan having reached out for Carla’s help, she turns up bearing gifts for the family and he initially resents her for getting all the attention when she is doing nothing to help the business. However, as the day winds on, Carla takes Aidan aside and tells him that she has had a change of heart – she is prepared to save underworld after all.
There is a jubilant atmosphere with the Connors all together for Christmas but Carla is hiding something from them. She is off the booze – so could she be pregnant or might she be hiding a health condition? Or is something else at play?
Whatever it is, she doesn’t want her relatives to know but when she comes face to face with a returning Roy Cropper, it’s clear that she has confided in him and he implores her to tell her family what is going on.
Later in the week, Roy will spot Carla with a mojito – or what he thinks is a mojito anyway – and he gives her some harsh words, leading to her slinking out on her own later and shedding some tears.
But Roy then determines to be there for her and makes an offer for her to move in. Will Carla accept? And will Roy be able to help her through whatever she is hiding?
Coronation Street’s Christmas Day episode airs on ITV at 8pm.
