Just read on Twitter (Tuesday 13th November) that Peter’s going to dump Carla and declare his love for Leanne in scenes to be shown in Coronation Street next month.
I’d read this spoiler several months ago but haven’t actually seen it confirmed until this morning, and it’s the news that #carchelle fans everywhere have been waiting for!
As if we weren’t desperate enough for Carla to return from a four month absence, we’re now holding our breath even more in the hope that it’ll be the start of a storyline leading to her and Michelle getting together as a couple.
To have an older, professional lesbian couple would be a first for any Soap and an amazing coup for Coronation Street.
If this is the first time you’ve read this page, then it’s something I started after spotting (over a year ago now) that the normally cold and distant character Carla Connor showed a lot of physical affection towards her best friend (and sister-in-law) Michelle.
She constantly touches, kisses and hugs Michelle in a way that you would only do with someone that you’re attracted to, and I started pointing out each occurrence in my Corrie Corner blogs every week.
People began to latch onto it; someone on Twitter coined the name #carchelle, and the rest – as they say – is history, with a whole army of #carchelle fans out there now who are all just as desperate as me to see our two favourite women together as a couple.
I’ve tweeted Carla Corner to Michelle (Kim Lomax) and she’s said that she likes the idea and has shown the posts to Carla (Alison King).
Perhaps it’s wishful thinking, but there’s a lot of us wishing for it …
* Coronation Street have a new sponsor, and a small number of sites (my own Carla Corner included!), have been selected to give you a sneak peek at the brand new advert (which won’t be shown on screen until November 19th).
If you retweet my tweet before the 19th you’ll be entered into a draw to win one of THREE Meerkat dolls I’ve been given by the sponsors Comparethemarket.com have provided as prizes, so enjoy this great little video and then get tweeting!
