Coronation Street’s Adam Barlow ‘exposes’ Carla as family betrayal sparks divide

Coronation Street’s Carla Barlow found herself in a tricky situation when Bobby Crawford decided to tell a major lie to the police.

It seems that future scenes may include a divide between The Barlow family. Truths are coming to light on the cobbles as fans of Coronation Street move closer to learning what happened to Lauren Bolton (played by Cait Fitton).

According to official ITV soap opera spoilers, Joel Deering (Calum Lill) will take his relationship with Dee Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) more seriously the next week when he reserves a seat at the cafe so she can meet his parents.

Joel goes to meet with the former criminal to negotiate his plea, even though she is furious that he is defending Nathan Curtis (Chris Harper). In another scene, Bethany Platt (Lucy Fallon) keeps pursuing her goal of demonstrating Nathan’s involvement in Lauren’s abduction.

Speaking with PC Craig Tinker (Colson Smith), Bethany reveals that she discovered Nathan used to abuse her as well after chatting with young adolescent Ellie. After deciding to pay Ellie a visit, Craig gives him her address.

But Ellie is nowhere to be found when he gets there, and her housemate informs Craig that she has moved out. But before he departs, she discloses that the teenager seems afraid of something.

Later on, Dee-Dee unintentionally tells Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson) the truth about Bobby Crawford (Jack Carroll).

According to the solicitor, Bobby was the one who gave a false statement to the police in an attempt to free Roy Cropper (David Neilson) from jail, thereby stitching up his uncle Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard).

The surprises don’t stop there, however, since she also informs him that Allison King’s character Carla Barlow participated in the deception.

Later on, when The Barlows all get together in the Rovers, Adam believes it’s time they find out the whole story.

He clarifies that Daniel’s rise to prominence as a main suspect in Lauren’s murder case was all Bobby’s responsibility.

What will be the family’s response to this knowledge? Will Carla eventually find herself cut off from the Barlow family as well?

The owner of Underworld, Chris Gascoyne, decided last week to change her last name from Barlow to Connor after finding out Peter Barlow had relocated overseas.

The previous few months have been stressful for Carla on the cobbles, as her husband left Weatherfield just before her estranged nephew showed up at her door.

Bobby had been close to Roy since moving into his new house, and he was determined that Roy not be charged with Lauren’s death.

He gave the police a bogus account, saying that it was not Roy that he had seen leaving Lauren’s apartment and that he had seen a guy wearing a balaclava.

Carla didn’t want her buddy to go to jail permanently, so she overrode her better judgement even though she first disapproved of the massive lie.

Could Carla’s actions, nevertheless, drive her away from the Barlow family?
