Coronation Street's Carla Barlow looks set for an earth-shattering affair with villain Damon – and fans are worried for her.
The Underworld boss has been happily loved up with hubby Peter for years now on and off, but they finally tied the knot last year in a dramatic ceremony while Peter was battling alcohol addiction.
But a chance encounter at Roy's Rolls in Monday's episode (January 16) saw sparks fly between Carla and newcomer Damon, as they sniped at each other for pushing in the queue.

Damon then tried to buy Carla's coffee for her, but with a roll of her eyes and swipe of her card, Carla was off – throwing a smirk over her shoulder.
Fans now think that snark could lead to an illicit romance after the breakdown of Carla and Peter was foreshadowed at New Year – with Carla compared to someone divorced "twice".
Taking to Twitter to share their thoughts, one fan penned: "Nah I actually find it a bit disrespectful the audacity Corrie has of making Damon Carla’s exact type. Swear to god if he drowns his sorrows with whiskey once my mental health will collapse!"
Another echoed: "Well that's Carla and Damon getting it onnnn!" as a third fan penned: "Ooh little spark between Carla and whatshisface there."
"Carla could possibly be the woman Damon has a fling with!" someone else posted.
A fifth said: "Please, Carla, don’t fall for Damon’s dubious 'charms'."
It comes after Corrie boss Iain MacLeod confirmed Damon will turn the head of a "notable female character" in a steamy affair twist.
Speaking to Daily Star and other press, Iain said: "As the year goes on, there's something about a bad boy I think it's fair to say, and he's got this attraction for a notable female character in the show who's going to have her head turned in a way that has consequences.
"I'm currently working on storylines for June and there's a built up and an explosion in the storyline involving Damon and this love story.

"I'm really excited about Ciaran's presence in the show and he just has this sense of danger about his performance."
Carla and Peter, meanwhile, have been compared on-screen to Burton and Taylor more than once – one of whom died of alcohol poisoning while the other divorced twice.
Fans are sure the comparison is a bit of foreshadowing when it comes to the couple's future, with Carla already divorced twice – once from Tony Gordon and another from Nick Tilsley.
In a twist on the classic, a divorce from Peter could be on the cards.
