Corrie's Eva set for sizzling new year with factory boss Aidan
Coronation Street's Eva Price and factory boss Aidan Connor are set to lock lips on New Year's Eve.
Eva (played by Catherine Tyldesley) has been unlucky in love from the moment she hit the famous cobbles in 2011.
Since then, she has clocked up failed relationships with Nick Tilsley (Ben Price), Jason Grimshaw (Ryan Thomas) and a man she got engaged to in France while on the rebound from Jason.
However, the New Year's Eve kiss could be the start of a big romance for Eva and Underworld manager Aidan (Shayne Ward) in 2016.
On New Year's Day, Leanne (Jane Danson) will catch Eva trying to sneak Corrie hunk Aidan out of the flat.
Tyldesley revealed the smooch was not as romantic as it looks on screen.
"Poor Shayne. Eva wears bright red lipstick and by the time we had finished the kissing scene it was all over his face!" she said.
T he relationship between the two residents develops further when Aidan discovers his dad Johnny (Richard Hawley) is also Carla's (Alison King) father.
He had previously thought the feisty businesswoman was a distant cousin.
"Eva tells him that she was shocked when she found out Leanne was her half-sister, but now they are very close and she feels it could be the same for him and Carla.
"They bond over this shared experience," Tyldesley explained.
"Eva is ready for romance again after what happened with Jason and it looks like she and Aidan could be perfect together."
The love match is set for all the ups and downs viewers have come to expect from the soaps.
In January, a new client arrives at Underworld with his glamorous wife.
It is Eva who realises all is not what it seems with the O'Driscolls; they are hiding a dark secret which could have far-reaching consequences for the factory.
