'Coronation Street': New spoilers for Rob arrival, Ryan return
Published Jun 19 2012, 19:47 BST | By Daniel Kilkelly
It's no secret that newcomer Rob Donovan
and returnee Ryan Connor
will be shaking up life on Coronation Street
from July, and a couple of new spoilers have emerged today about their early storylines.
The summer soap preview in this week's TV Times
reveals that Carla's brother Rob, played by Marc Baylis
, turns up on the cobbles just as the factory boss is having a big bust-up with Peter.
Rob immediately gets involved by jumping to Carla's defence as she rows with her partner, leaving Peter stunned when he discovers the identity of the new arrival.
As we reported a while ago, Rob will be helping to look after Underworld
while Carla takes her break from Weatherfield
It has also now been revealed that Rob hires Eva Price as a machinist for the factory, which will no doubt lead to their rumoured romance storyline
. It's unclear whether this will be a permanent arrangement, but it could be a good opportunity to see Eva interacting with some new characters.
The big story for Ryan's return will be his drugs problem
, but viewers will also see him causing trouble from the very beginning as he accidentally starts a fire at Number 13 in some of his first scenes. We're guessing it will just be a small fire, but perhaps this is how the house's owner Steve gets back involved in Michelle's life with the recent news that the pair could be reuniting
Look out for Rob's arrival on July 9 and Ryan's return on July 18.
Other notable snippets from the new TV Times
issue, which is out today, include the news that Maria and Jason's friends will be trying to get them together in July, and that Kirsty's next furious outburst will be overheard by the neighbours...
