Corrie viewers know that Carla struggled with her mental health in the aftermath of the factory collapse that killed Rana Habeeb last year.
Carla suffered a terrifying psychotic breakdown in a special episode that saw the events – including Carla talking to her dead brother Aidan Connor and seeing her dead friend Hayley Cropper – from her perspective.
But with the help of her lover Peter, Carla eventually overcame her mental health crisis.
Next week’s episodes of Coronation Street will see Carla shocked to hear that Scott worked with Johnny in the seventies and that he knew her mum.
Meanwhile, a young woman called Chesley heads into the Rovers.
Spotting Carla, the newcomer asks Sean who she is and Sean tells her she’s his boss.
When Carla goes to the loo, Chesley follows her and tells her she knows her.
Who is the mystery girl?
Speaking to RadioTimes.com about the soap’s upcoming storylines, Corrie producer Ian MacLeod said: “Now Carla is back on an even keel psychologically we wanted to revisit her mental health crisis, specifically when she went missing during that time.
“It’s an opportunity to fill in the blanks and reveal something we didn’t know previously.
“There were glimpses of her in a hotel and a squat, but when she was found she had no recollection of how she got there and we simply don’t know what happened.
“Two new characters will be introduced who emerge from Carla’s ‘lost weekend’.
"What that provides in the present is a chance to see another existing character elsewhere on the street reveal their true colours.
"I’m aware that sounds cryptic but I don’t want to give too much away…!”
Asked whether the newcomer has anything to do with Scott Emberton, who has a mysterious connection to Carla’s dad Johnny, Ian added: “I can tell you for sure it’s not to do with Ray or Scott, there are new characters we’ve yet to meet.”
