As problems pile up at work, and with her personal life falling apart, Carla is starting to show the strain.
To make matters worse, a huge bust-up at the factory ends with Carla’s boyfriend, Trevor, lashing out at Nick.
For Nick, it’s the last straw, and he tells Carla he wants to end their business partnership.
Stunned Carla lays the blame at Trevor’s door, sacking him on the spot and telling him to get out of her life. With nothing left, she then seeks solace in drink.
Later, Peter is surprised when he sees Carla hovering outside his AA meeting and goes to speak to her.
Carla insists she is looking for her Spanish class, but Peter isn’t convinced and watches her head into the factory alone.
Carla, however, sends him packing and turns back to the bottle. Is her life spiralling out of control? Watch the drama on Corrie from Monday, 27 September.
