Corrie star Alison King on “bully” Frank, and Andrew Lancel’s a wannabe singer!

by Lynn Connolly

The focus of Corrie recently has of course been on Frank Foster’s not guilty verdict at the end of the rape trial, and Alison King, who plays his victim Carla Connor, has revealed that Frank hasn’t done tormenting Carla yet.

Speaking to ITV about what happens in the aftermath of the trial, and of course, the disclosure of Carla’s affair with Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne), Alison said, “Carla’s feeling devastated straight after the trial…

“But she really just wants to move on, get back into the factory and get back into the swing of things.

“She’s got Peter to lean on and he’s helping her do that, but there’s complications.

“Frank’s still about and making trouble. She arrives back to her factory raring to go, to discover that he’s moved in there…

“He offers to buy her out because he thinks this is going to be a really good solution. He tries to bully her out.”

And of Carla and Peter’s relationship, now it’s been made public, Alison said, “Carla and Peter’s relationship is floating, blooming, it’s beautiful.

“They’ve got banter, they’ve got everything. But Carla, Peter and Simon – that’s not so easy. Simon hates her.”

Meanwhile, Andrew Lancel, who of course plays evil Frank, has revealed that when his character is killed off later this year, he plans to try his hand at a singing career.

Speaking to the Sun, Andrew said, “I’m really looking forward to getting back to singing. I’ve done it on and off for years.

“I’m going back on the road and will get back into acting later in the year.

“Corrie is watched by so many people, you have fans coming up to you in the supermarket, saying ‘Hi Frank’.

“I had that a bit in The Bill but nothing like it is in Corrie. I take my hats off to everyone who works there.”

Any guesses who’ll murder Frank?
