CARLA Connor has been going above and beyond to save the Underworld factory.
But she may need to put in more effort into salvaging her marriage as Peter Barlow takes his anger out on her in Coronation Street.
The Weatherfield cabbie portrayed by Chris Gascoyne mowed over Stephen Reid last month, killing him instantly.
Initially accused of murdering the treacherous businessman, Peter was eventually cleared of all suspicion.
Unfortunately, his marriage with Carla Connor (played by Alison King) is seemingly headed for the rocks as tensions continue to grow between the pair.
This could be due to Peter's shock following Stephen's death as he almost relapsed into alcoholism before his ex Toyah Battersby (Georgia Taylor) offered him help.

Meanwhile, Carla has remained focused on saving business at the Underworld factory, which was left in a precarious position due to Stephen's schemes, thus neglecting Peter and his distress.
Coming up next week on ITV, Carla tells Beth Tinker (Lisa George) and Sean Tully (Antony Cotton) she’s paid their wages for the last month after struggling to do so in the wake of the loss of the Nippersnapper deal.
Carla then makes it clear that if they return to work and complete the order, they’ll be paid for this month as well.
Unfortunately, Beth and Sean aren't ready to comply, suspicious they may never get their wages for their hard work and Carla’s frustrated when they say they’ll only think about it.
