Corrie Carla woes, 'Enders romance, E'dale newcomer, 'Oaks kiss

By
Coronation Street's Carla Connor faces more tough times on the cobbles later this month as evil Frank Foster continues to cause trouble for her.

Carla (Alison King) has struggled to work with Frank (Andrew Lancel) at the factory in recent days, and things are about to get worse when he sabotages her hopes of landing a lucrative new contract.

When Carla and Michelle (Kym Marsh) meet up with potential buyer Jenny Sumner (Niky Wardley) at the Bistro, everything seems to be going well until Frank turns up and starts interfering.

Frank's antics are enough to put off Jenny altogether, and Carla is furious that she has lost out on the contract.

Later, Carla is annoyed further when she spots Frank, Anne and Sally toasting their success at landing a big order after her own deal was blown. Will Carla start to reconsider Frank's offer to buy her out of the factory, or will she stand firm?

Coming up in Emmerdale, Gaynor Faye makes her debut on the soap as she takes on the role of Declan's half-sister Megan Macey.

As Declan (Jason Merrells) still hopes to go ahead with his plans for a musical festival, Nicola and Charity both angle for a job organising the event. However, they're in for a shock when Declan brings Megan to the village and introduces her as his new festival manager.

Later, though, it becomes clear that Megan may still need some convincing as she bickers with Declan over whether she really will join forces with him. Declan is eager to have Megan on board as he knows she has the right skills, but she remains unsure - leaving him frustrated.

At the same time, Katie (Sammy Winward) isn't entirely bowled over by the new arrival as she had no idea that Declan had a half-sister. The pair also get off on the wrong foot when Megan dismisses Katie, assuming that she's only a Home Farm staff member.

In the end, Declan gets tough with Megan by giving her a one-day deadline to make a decision about the festival job, and Katie is pleased to see him stand up to her. What will Megan decide?

Becoming fixated on the matter, Marina suggests that Heston (Owen Brenman) should lose some weight to deal with the situation - adding that laser surgery could also help.

Later, when Marina rants at Heston for suggesting that they could invite Ian over, it's clear that she's back to her old tricks - and it won't be long before things take another dramatic turn for the worse…
