Coronation Street fans were no doubt devastated when Bethany (played by Lucy Fallon) broke up with Craig Tinker (Colson Smith).
Now, Craig has moved on with newcomer Kayla (Mollie Winnard), who was introduced as a waitress at the Speed Daal restaurant.
The pair are set to enjoy their first date in upcoming episodes on the ITV soap.
While Kayla may seem kind, their date takes a sinister turn when she starts probing about Bethany and Craig’s romance.
Craig is left baffled by her interest in his ex-girlfriend.
Kayla and Craig quickly overcome the awkward exchange but it seems the waitress’ obsession with Bethany is only just starting.
The newcomer will plot to drive a wedge between Craig and Bethany.
When Bethany tells Emma Brooker she’s worried about how Craig will fare in the police force.
Kayla overhears and informs Craig about the conversation but twists Bethany’s words.
Furious that his ex has no confidence in him, he lashes out at her.
But that is just the beginning.
Coronation Street fans will learn that Kayla is actually the daughter of corrupt cop Neil Clifton.
Neil raped Bethany last year when her boyfriend Nathan Curtis groomed her.
The police officer is currently in prison following Bethany’s grooming ordeal but he’s hoodwinked his teenage daughter into seeking revenge.
He has convinced her that Bethany lied about his involved and now Kayla wants Craig and Bethany to pay. How far will she go?
Speaking about the storyline, Mollie told TV Times: “Kayla is very happy when she sees her plan is working.
“It’s like anything in life – when you see results, it makes you want to do it more.”
It comes after on-set pictures showed Bethany gagged and bound up by Kayla.
Is she planning on kidnapping the teen and will Craig work out Kayla’s plan in time to save her?
Coronation Street airs tonight on ITV at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
