Vengeful Kayla Clifton steps up her campaign to take revenge on Craig Tinker and Bethany Platt tonight – by taking cruel action against her boyfriend as she continues to fool him into thinking their relationship is real.
The Coronation Street newcomer has targeted the Weatherfield favourites due to the fact that her dad Neil is in prison and has lost his appeal. Neil has manipulated Kayla into believing that he is innocent of his crimes and she blames Bethany and Craig for her family being ripped apart.
After sleeping with Craig and taking his virginity, Kayla continues to dupe him tonight and uses his vulnerabilities against him by using his OCD as a weapon. And as Craig is left distressed, she will later try and persuade him that his condition means he should quit his career in the police force.
As Kaylas wicked games get worse, she will become more desperate and when Bethany discovers her identity, it leads to her being knocked out and taken hostage. But sooner rather than later, Kayla will have to accept the truth.
The question is, how much damage will she have done before that happens?
Speaking about what it would do to her alter ego when she does discover that her dad is the monster that everyone says he is, actress Mollie Winnard told Metro.co.uk: I can only imagine she will be devastated – like I say, he is her hero and her whole life. He has really manipulated her into believing his version of events is true so suddenly if that facade was shattered, everything you know to be true is a lie. Youd question everything – how shed been brought up, her relationship with her dad, was any of it true?
Coronation Street airs the scenes between Kayla and Craig on Friday 13th July at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
