Coronation Street: Alison King will be on our screens as Carla Connor until May

Great news for Coronation Street fans. We’ll be seeing Underworld boss Carla Connor on the Corrie cobbles for a while longer yet before she takes a break.

Corrie bosses have confirmed that Alison King, who plays Weatherfield favourite Carla, will be on our screens until May next year.

It was announced earlier this year that the popular actress would be taking a sabbatical for creative reasons from her role of troubled Underworld owner Carla – and she will eventually be returning to the soap.

The actress, 42, has been playing the feisty Underworld boss for nine years and wants to take a break to pursue other projects.

“She wishes to try her hand at other projects before returning to the part of Carla Connor, a role she has enjoyed playing for nine years.”
