'Coronation Street' Spoiler: Turmoil Ahead For Carla Connor, Who 'Will Discover Her Husband Was Actually First-Cousin'

Carla Connor’s life looks set to be turned upside down, with reports that she’s to be involved in a shocking new ‘Coronation Street’ storyline.


The Underworld boss - played by Alison King - has had a tough couple of years, but it seems producers aren’t about to give her an easy ride, with claims she’s to be involved in a shocking future storyline.

According to the Daily Star, Carla is to discover that her late husband’s uncle, Johnny Connor, could be her biological father, meaning she was married to her first cousin without even realising it.

An insider told the newspaper: “[Alison]’s still got a good few months before she goes off on her break but the twist that Johnny is her dad is huge. She's got some great stuff coming up.

“The daddy bombshell means that his kids Aiden and Kate are also her half-brother and sister. Carla became a Connor through marriage but it turns out that she's actually always been one.”

The shock storyline will also involve the return of actor Marc Baylis as Carla’s brother, Rob, who attempts to blackmail Johnny from his prison cell.

Rob is still seeking revenge on Carla, after she handed him over to the police, for the murder of Michelle Keegan’s character Tina McIntyre.

A ‘Corrie’ spokesperson said: "We do not comment on speculation about future storylines as we don't want to ruin it for our viewers."
