Coronation Street seem to be lining up a new romance in coming months as Shayne Ward and Helen Flanagan have been filming scenes at a swanky restaurant. And we reckon that Aidan Connor isn’t all that interested in Rosie Webster’s eye for business…
Aidan and Rosie have crossed paths a couple of times – not always as allies – but they seemingly could be set for romance as they apparently grow closer. At the moment, Aidan is busy moving on from his ex Eva Price, completely unaware that he could be thrown right back into her life as she is carrying his baby.
That’s if Toyah Battersby doesn’t persuade the unsure barmaid to hand the baby over to her and Peter Barlow, that is. Meanwhile, Aidan is getting Underworld back on its feet in the wake of Carla’s return and he could also end up being a match for her as she desperately needs a new kidney after collapsing.
A busy time – business is on the up, he could be a saviour to his sister and now a potential new romance; what could possibly go wrong?
Little is known about how Aidan and Rosie will find themselves on each others’ radar but the stars were wrapped up warm and smiling broadly as they filmed scenes on location. Could this give both characters something to smile about?
Of course, it wouldn’t be a day on planet Earth if Helen didn’t find time for a few selfies so between takes, she was mastering that pout and snapping a few shots to remember the day by.
It remains to be seen whether happiness is on the horizon for the pair but we won’t be suggesting any eternity rings for them quite yet given that Shayne is departing his role as Aidan in the summer while Helen is heading off on maternity leave.
Another exit is that of Catherine Tyldesley, who plays Eva – she is also expected to depart in the summer time. So what kind of drama takes place between the trio between now and then that will see them all wave goodbye to the cobbles?
Could Aidan and Eva reunite and head off into the sunset, leaving a heartbroken Rosie to shuffle off and lick her wounds? Or are there more twists in store?
Fans can expect Rosie and Aidan’s scenes to hit their screens in March.
