How Coronation St’s Carla uncovers the truth

Coronation Street‘s Alison King has spoken about her final scenes in Weatherfield.

The 35-year-old soap star – who plays Carla Connor – is going on maternity leave to have her first child, and has just filmed her exit scenes, to be shown in February. Carla has a huge showdown with husband Tony when she learns he killed her lover Liam.

Alison said: “I don’t know how much I can tell you. I can talk about it, but not the very end. There’s such a load I wouldn’t know where to begin! She starts to unravel the truth.

“Just some things about Tony that she didn’t know had happened and she starts slowly to put two and two together.

“Then she confronts Tony and he makes a huge confession in the factory to her and the truth is all unravelled.

“She’s going to get it out of him whatever way possible, whatever it takes. She needs to know. You can’t carry on living with somebody when you don’t know what he’s about. She wouldn’t do that.”

Alison will return to the Street, but isn’t sure how or when.

She said: “I don’t know. Obviously it depends how long I take off, but the way it’s been left open is just brilliant. Only Carla knows for sure what Tony’s done so that leaves it open for anything to happen while she’s away.”
