Sourcing the right fabrics and securing good deals for Underworld is becoming a huge problem for Carla Connor (Alison King) in Coronation Street, so she turns to Nadeem – a dodgy businessman.
In tonight’s episode of the ITV soap, we saw Carla struggling to secure a fabric order, leading to Stephen (Todd Boyce) putting his company forward again and reminding the Underworld boss he can get her a deal at a good price.
During Wednesday’s edition, Carla voices her concerns about Stephen to Peter (Chris Gascoyne) and Ken (William Roache), who conclude his attentions are honourable and should be hired on a consultancy basis.
Next week, when Peter lets slip that Carla is doing work with Nadeem Atallah, Griff – Spider’s (Martin Hancock) mate – reveals that Nadeem is notorious for his unethical working practices and this could be their chance to expose him.
When Toyah (Georgia Taylor) warns Carla that doing business with Nadeem could damage her reputation, she reveals it’s too late – the deal is done.
But will Carla end up regretting her decision?
If work with Nadeem fails, could we see Stephen take advantage to get into the firm more?
