Coronation Street has released the first picture of the entire Connor clan, who wil be joining Carla on the cobbles this autumn.

Aidan Connor (Shayne Ward) arrived on the street in August, investing in Underworld after hearing how Carla’s gambling debts were threatening the business.

After a rocky start Carla has welcomed Aidan’s input, but when his dad Johnny (Richard Hawley) and sister Kate (Faye Brookes) burst into the factory Carla is left wondering what she’s let herself in for.

It turns out that Aidan has been less than truthful about where his cash came from and Carla soon finds herself with more than one family member going over the books.

Kate and Aidan Connor are distant cousins of Michelle (Kym Marsh) and the family grew up on the same estate as Carla, who later married into the Connor family.

Dad Johnny is a self-made man who's been in the rag trade for years and has a well earned reputation. He’s funny, charming but ruthless in business. Johnny adores his kids, but he’s no pushover as Carla soon learns.

Kate is a tough cookie and more than a match for her father and brother. Engaged to be married to female soldier Caz, Kate is a fun and vibrant young woman, full of mischief, but passionate about family.

Johnny and Kate arrive in Coronation Street from Monday, October 5.
