Coronation Street video: see Shayne Ward in action as Aidan Connor. Is he Carla’s saviour?

You can finally see ex-X Factor winner Shayne Ward make his debut on Coronation Street as Aidan Connor…

Coronation Street has released a promotional video, showing Aidan arrive at Underworld, much to Carla’s surprise…

“The factory’s on the brink, I’m broke… The sooner I’m off the better,” Carla’s seen saying to Nick (Ben Price).

Later, as Carla’s sitting at her desk, in walks…

“Aidan Connor!” Carla (Alison King) says, surprised, and jumps up to give him a big hug.

“You’ve put Underworld on the market,” says Aidan. “From what I’ve heard it’s been a cracking business…could be again. We’d make a great team.”

The smile’s gone from Carla’s face now.

“You know you can trust me with your life,” Aidan continues.

Oh? How does she know that? Just what is Aidan’s history with Carla – and can she trust him?

“Now I’m here I suppose the big question is: am I staying?” says Aidan.

Coronation Street continues on ITV, Monday, August 17, 7.30pm.
