WEATHERFIELD villain Stephen Reid has a plan to give himself financial security.
Unfortunately, it could be at the cost of Coronation Street businesswoman Carla Connor. What is he up to?
The Underworld leading lady played by Alison King has no idea that her PA Sarah Barlow (Tina O'Brien) has embarked on a new business venture.
To make matters worse, she has joined forces with both Michael Bailey (Ryan Russell) and Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce).
In upcoming scenes of the ITV soap, the trio are joined by Beth Tinker (Lisa George) who spends all night working on samples for a new collection.
Sadly, her machine has jammed and she needs to figure out a way to keep Carla in the dark or she'll know Beth has been moonlighting.

Stephen is just as preoccupied by the situation but manages to keep his cool when he shows businessman Rufus from Donahues around the factory.
Carla returns and, knowing he can't have them bump into one another, Stephen steers Rufus away as swiftly as he can.
In later scenes, both men are at the Bistro with Sarah and Michael, and Rufus quizzes Stephen who makes out that Carla is his PA.
Rufus is under their spell and announces he'd like the exclusive rights to their products.

Sarah, Michael and Stephen raise a toast to their new and successful business… but their plans could be thwarted.
Following their meeting, Rufus leaves the Bistro and is given a lift by taxi driver Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne).
Both Peter and Rufus begin to chat and the latter explains he stopped by Weatherfield to do a deal with the Underworld factory.
Peter is taken aback by the news as he believes his wife Carla would have told him all about Rufus behind closed doors.
He thus reveals that he gave the entrepreneur a lift, telling Carla that he's doing a deal with the factory.
Could this lead Carla to figure out what Stephen has been up to behind her back?
Is Carla in immediate danger?
