Jenny and Johnny wreck Eva's cosy fantasy of setting up home with Aidan Connor in Corrie
Eva Price is serious about boyfriend Aidan Connor, so she thinks it’s a good idea when her Underworld pal, Sinead Tinker, suggests they rent Carla Connor’s empty flat so they can move in together. What Eva doesn’t know, however, is that Jenny Bradley would like her boyfriend, Aidan’s dad Johnny Connor, to rent the flat so they have their own little love nest.
Johnny tells Aidan he’s going for the flat, and Aidan decides to surprise Eva with a mini-break to make things up to her. Unfortunately, Kirk Sutherland takes a message from the estate agent and wrongly assumes the keys to Carla’s flat are meant for Aidan. So when Kirk passes the message on to Eva, she’s delighted.
Johnny later invites Aidan to his flat-warming party and Aidan tells Eva to meet him at Carla’s place with an overnight bag. How will Eva react when she discovers they’ve been talking at crossed purposes and she won’t be moving in with her lover after all?
Following Sinead's suggestion, Eva cosies up to Aidan in the Rovers and prepares to put the idea to him about setting up home together in Carla's empty flat.
When Eva tentatively says Carla's flat would be perfect for them, Aidan hesitates before saying he reckons it's too soon for them to move in together.
Elsewhere in the Rovers, Jenny persuades Johnny that Carla's place would be perfect for them as a lovenest.
Later, Johnny invites Aidan to join his sister, Kate, and a few guests at Carla's place for a flat-warming party, but Eva's mistakenly assumed Aidan's taken her there to reveal he's rented it for them.
Excited Eva is expecting Aidan to ask her to move in with him, but a bemused Aidan explains it's Johnny's flat-warming and the penny drops.
Aidan tells Eva he's booked a surprise mini-break for them at a spa hotel.
It's not the surprise Eva was expecting and she feels humiliated and disappointed.
Will Aidan be able to make it up to Eva, or is their relationship heading for trouble?
