This week in Coronation Street we're going to see Adam Barlow take his blackmailing of Aidan (over the filmed snog with Maria) up to a new level.
First, Adam teams up with Eva in his bid to get one over on Aidan Connor and Adam has a takeover at the factory clearly in his sights. Eva's already fired up with hatred for Aidan, so will she help Adam with his master plan? I think she should - and here's why I reckon we need to see Adam Barlow take up the reins at Underworld.
1. He's his father's son and all the girls would flutter round him just like they did with Mike Baldwin. For a while, until they went on strike.
2. Adam and Carla Connor. Speaking of women, Adam and Carla Connor would make the perfect power couple. Because she is coming back, right? I mean, she has to, surely?
3. He's as idle as the day is long. And he's therefore perfectly placed to fit right in with the factory girls and Sean who'll do anything to skive off. Adam could easily run Underworld down into the ground and then it's up to Carla to return home to save it all. Because she is coming back, right? (see above).
