Shayne Ward has told us his Coronation Street character, Aidan Connor, could never forgive fiancé Eva Price if he were to find out she had been faking her pregnancy.
Eva – played by Catherine Tyldesley – is currently pretending to be carrying her boyfriend’s baby as part of a revenge plot to financially ruin the Underworld businessman, whom she has discovered was cheating on her with hairdresser Maria Connor.
So far, Eva has managed to get away with her lie, after claiming scan photographs she has pulled off the internet are of their unborn child. But her secret is in jeopardy this week when, as she and Aidan are about to marry, a suspicious Maria interrupts the proceedings and denounces the ceremony a sham.
Asked how Aidan would react if he were to discover that Eva wasn’t pregnant afterall, Shayne said: “Oh my days, it would be absolutely done; over!
“The cheating, fair enough– he was absolutely in the wrong. But for your heart to be absolutely ripped out of you and to say ‘You’re not going to be a dad and it was all a lie’, I don’t think you can justify that.
“Rinsing someone out of their money, absolutely – take it! A lot of women scratch cars and fair play! But I think to lie about a baby is going to absolutely destroy Aidan.”
