Carla Connor is in for a shock in an upcoming Coronation Street storyline when Peter Barlow sells his share in Underworld – and someone pretty close to home ends up buying into the factory and becoming her business partner. And boy, is she mad!
Peter is feeling surplus to requirements at the factory and his disdain over his role there is clear so he turns his attention to buying into the snooker hall on Victoria Street. Which is a tad different to stitching knickers.
Peter ends up in talks with a major rival of Underworlds but when Carla shuts this down and it all falls through, she ends up with an even more familiar face as her new business partner and it doesnt go down well.
A preview in TV Times stated: Carla is furious to discover the identity of her new partner, and equally livid that sneaky Peter did the deal behind her back. Peter may now have the cash to fund his new venture – but has he completely blown his chance of a reunion with Carla in the process?
We reckon its safe to say that he wont be in her good books – but who is she going to have to be sharing morning meetings with from now on?
Could it be her long time enemy Tracy Barlow? Or maybe her ex Nick is looking to get into the knicker trade? Or maybe Alya has had a change of heart and wants her foot back in the door?
Whoever it is, Carla doesnt want them there – but she seems to have little choice, thanks to Peter!
