Johnny Connor (played by Richard Hawley) was left shaken recently as Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews) introduced him to a new guest, Scott Emberton (Tom Roberts). It quickly became clear Johnny and Scott had known each other in another life, but when Johnny announced he and Jenny were off to France to see Eva Price (Catherine Tyldesley) and their grandchild, suspicions were raised. But, in upcoming scenes of Coronation Street, Scott is going to have an important chat with Johnny before he leaves. Could Johnny lose the Rovers because of his dark past? 


Last week, Jenny was left baffled when her husband suggested they leave the cobbles for a little while.

Scott had decided to stay in the B&B and Johnny kept making excuses why he shouldn’t meet the guest despite Jenny’s excitement.

Johnny quickly decided to pack up his bags and asked Carla Connor (Alison King) if she and Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) would look after the pub whilst he was away. 

This will leave Carla and Peter to look after Scott who doesn’t seem to be going anywhere very soon. 

However, at the end of last night’s episode, Scott left Johnny with no choice and told him what a long time it had been since they last spoke.

Jenny was left stunned Johnny hadn’t mentioned the two knew each other during the week he has been staying with them, but in upcoming scenes, a dark secret could come to light. 

In a spoiler for Wednesday’s episode, as Jenny and Johnny say their farewells to their friends, Scott will pull Johnny aside. 

The preview clip hears Scott say: “Hello and goodbye then. I hope you’re not leaving because of me.”

Johnny brushed it off, itching to leave the pub and get going, but Scott kept going. 

He continues: “Good, cause there are no hard feelings on my part. The past is the past.”

Fans have been speculating as to what really happened between Johnny and Scott, but whatever it is, Johnny doesn’t want a single person to know. 

Some have speculated it’s to do with Carla since Johnny has recently found out he was her father. 

Fans know that years ago, Johnny cheated on his wife Louisa with Sharon, and whilst trying to protect his marriage, he hid the affair and paid child support.

But, Johnny and Carla have had time to build on their relationship as father and daughter so, could Scott be about to screw that all up?

When it became clear that Carla was actually his after a secret affair, he conducted his own DNA test. 

Could Scott know the truth about Carla’s real father and finally come to expose the lies? 

And would Johnny ever sell up and move from the Rovers Return in the hopes of running away from his past?

Alternatively, Johnny leaving Scott to talk to his family could prove detrimental also, he can get inside the heads of those closest to him. 

Concerns have already been raised about Peter’s health and fears he could relapse and turn back to the bottle after struggling with alcohol addiction for years. 

Is Scott in Weatherfield to tear the Connor’s apart one by one?
