Coronation Street boss, Iain MacLeod, has teased a new "nightmare-ish" plot involving newcomer Lydia, Adam and Sarah Barlow.
Talking about what soap watchers can expect for 2022, the ITV soap producer admitted that Lydia, played by Shameless star Rebecca Ryan, becomes a "threat" to Adam (Sam Robertson) and Sarah's (Tina O'Brien) marriage.
Speaking to press, Iain teased: "I hope to bring loads of excitement, Rebecca is fantastic since we saw her audition, it was a case of 'where do we sign?'
"We wanted an updated version of a 90s thriller – like Fatal Attraction. They look horribly dated in gender politics. So what would it look like as a 21st century story.
"I hope we’ve crafted it, everyone behaves badly, it’s very nuanced but she becomes a threat to the marriage; a catalyst for Sarah and Adam to destroy themselves.
"There is lots of scheming and intelligent subterfuge in several parties. It culminates in some exciting pay off in the first six months.
"It starts small and even humorous with Adam and Sarah as they take pot shots, gradually it becomes more nightmare-ish. It’s exciting with three fantastic actors. It’s thriller-ish but modern."
It come as Adam is set to be targeted by a mystery enemy in upcoming scenes on the ITV soap, where he accuses Lydia, who he used to date, of keying his car.
Elsewhere, soap watchers have claimed that they have worked out an Adam baby twist and have predicted that he could be the father of newcomer Lydia's son on the ITV soap.
Lydia, played by Shameless star Rebecca Ryan, made her cobbles debut last month as the PA of an Underworld client and she has already bonded with Sarah.
And it wasn't long until Lydia revealed her own past with Adam, where he admitted that he can't remember their former relationship, leaving wife Sarah furious.
