Coronation Street has often left us reeling with the secrets cobbles’ newcomers bring with them, and this includes mysterious Scott Emberton (played by Tom Roberts). The seemingly charming B&B guest made his first appearance in the ITV soap back in April, and he soon piqued viewer’s interests after it became obvious he and Johnny Connor (Richard Hawley) have a history.
We’re yet to find out what happened between the pair, but it can only be something bad as Johnny fled Weatherfield with wife Jenny (Sally Ann Matthews), taking an impromptu trip to visit Eva Price (Catherine Tyldesley) in France.
Visibly terrified by his presence, it seems the Rovers landlord was so desperate to bury their past that leaving the street was the best thing to do.
But while Jenny returns next week, Johnny is nowhere to be seen.
With the threat of Scott still very much present, next week Jenny explains that he wanted to stay with Eva for a little longer, but we all know he’s really just avoiding the giant elephant in the room.
Soon, news broke that the pair of hooligans were attacked and Carla’s boyfriend Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) was thought to be the perpetrator at first.
But after he confirmed his alibi, suspicion moved to Scott which heightened after a brief glimpse of his cut knuckles flashed on-screen.
Could this be the big secret between him and Johnny?
