CORONATION Street fans believe that Johnny Connor “shared a secret gay affair” with the mysterious newcomer Scott. ITV soap viewers predicted the idea after Johnny was left startled by Scott’s arrival on the cobbles.
Scott recently showed up at the Rovers Return, looking to rent out the spare room. But when Johnny came face-to-face with him, the new tenant suddenly looked uncomfortable.
Johnny was, in fact, so unsettled he attempted to convince Jenny to take an impromptu holiday.
Johnny then organized for Peter Barlow and Carla Connor to run the bar, leaving Jenny and him free to swan off to France.t It’s not clear yet what the connection between Johnny and Scott is, but fans assume that he’s hiding a huge secret.
Taking Twitter, one wrote: “Has Johnny had a secret gay affair in a previous life? # Corrie.” Another added: “I think Johnny is a corrie homosexual.” Speaking to Inside Soap, star Tom Roberts-who plays Scott-assured fans that Johnny has every right to panic after meeting his old acquaintance.
He said, “It’s clear that Johnny fears Scott — he thought this man was out of his life forever, and now he’s turning up at his B&B.” “Scott has this jovial, sunny personality, and he welcomes Johnny as if he was genuinely happy to see him, but there are things underneath that have not yet come to the surface.” It’s pretty apparent that Johnny needs to get away to France as soon as possible to avoid Scott.
