Coronation Street: Carla’s found an unlikely friend in DS Swain

Viewers will know that Carla has been spending a lot of time around DS Swain in a bid to get Roy out of prison.

Last week, Carla found DS Swain’s police pass and handed it back to her before overhearing her having an argument on the phone with her daughter.

Getting into DS Lisa Swain’s car, Carla then provided her with a listening ear as she confessed that her partner Becky had died and that her daughter wasn’t handling things well.

With Roy being released near the end of last week’s episodes, Carla then told Lisa that she’d be happy to give her daughter some work experience.

She’d been grateful that she hadn’t arrested her for going along with Bobby’s false statement, offering to help her out.

With the pair forming an unlikely friendship and with DS Swain set for a female love interest, fans have been hoping that Carla could be the one to catch her eye… And, we’re here for it too!
