Corrie viewers know that Carla struggled with her mental health in the aftermath of the factory collapse that killed Rana Habeeb last year.
Carla suffered a harrowing psychotic breakdown in a special episode that saw the events – including Carla talking to her dead brother Aidan Connor and seeing her dead friend Hayley Cropper – from her perspective.
Viewers were shocked by the arrival of a mystery woman in the Rovers this week who claimed to know who Carla is.
Chelsey then revealed that Carla stayed in her squat when she was sleeping rough last year and issued her with an ultimatum – give her a grand or she’ll tell Peter what she got up to last year.
Coronation Street scenes set to air tonight will see Carla discover Chelsey lurking in the back yard and offer to get her breakfast at the cafe.
But later Carla is horrified when Chelsey storms into the pub with a man named Jordan, who wastes little time in reminding Carla that he ran the squat – and demands that she pay him for the drugs she destroyed.
Peter finds Carla in tears in the back room of the Rovers with Jordan and demands to know what’s going on.
Carla tries to worm her way out of the situation and quickly says that Jordan is just inquiring about a room, but she eventually tells Peter the truth.
With the encouragement of Peter and Scott, Carla tries to face up to Jordan and Chelsey when they next come into the pub and throws them out.
Peter then turns on the radio and hears a news report about a serious assault of a man and woman on a local estate, but turns the radio off before Carla can hear it.
Who’s responsible for the assault?
Speaking to RadioTimes.com about Carla's new storyline, Corrie producer Ian MacLeod said: “Now Carla is back on an even keel psychologically we wanted to revisit her mental health crisis, specifically when she went missing during that time.
“It’s an opportunity to fill in the blanks and reveal something we didn’t know previously.
“There were glimpses of her in a hotel and a squat, but when she was found she had no recollection of how she got there and we simply don’t know what happened.
“Two new characters will be introduced who emerge from Carla’s ‘lost weekend’.
"What that provides in the present is a chance to see another existing character elsewhere on the street reveal their true colours.”
