Back in 2006 when the Connor clan were first introduced, they were billed as being Corrie's own "Mitchell brothers" only for Paul to leave within a year and Liam a year after that.
For a while the Connor clan seemed dead and gone, except from Carla, but ever since Michelle and Maria were brought into the factory, there seems to be something of a sisterhood that has bloomed.
This shined through in tonight's episodes with both Maria and Michelle sticking up for Carla, and supporting her at the trial, I hope that following the trial, Corrie will build on their relationship, as I think they all have good potential.
