It’s been reported today that Stella Price and Sunita Alahan are set to form an unlikely alliance when Sunita – who of course had an affair with Stella’s bloke Karl Munro – suspects that recidivist cheat Karl is seeing someone else.
As mentioned, Karl (John Michie) began an affair with Sunita earlier this year, and when Stella (Michelle Collins) found out about it, she threw him out of The Rovers and told him never to dorken her dark step again. Or words to that effect…
Since then, Karl of course moved in with Sunita (Shobna Gulati) after she broke the news of her romance with Karl to her heartbroken fiancé Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) who was relegated to living in the flat over his shop while Karl moved into his house with Sunita.
However, according to the Daily Star today, when Karl begins to go missing for extended periods of time, and offers up flimsy excuses about where he’s been, Sunita turns to Stella for advice…
And glad of the opportunity to say “I told you so”, Stella will inform Sunita that on numerous occasions, Karl has tried to convince her to take him back, despite telling Sunita that she’s the love of his life.
Stella will tell Sunita, “I’m going to say something you might not want to hear. I was with Karl for a very long time…
“Looking back now I don’t know how I did it, I really don’t. I must have been out of my mind to forgive him for all the excuses and lies.
“A leopard never changes his spots.”
Adding that when Karl wasn’t womanizing, he was busy blowing their money on gambling, Stella will add, “Don’t be like me and waste years of your life on him, you’ll only regret it.
“Maybe you regret it now.
“Don’t let him take advantage of you, kick him out.”
A show insider said of the plot twist, “Karl has got away with his bad boy behaviour for too long.
“He thinks he’s got Sunita wrapped around his little finger. But he won’t expect his new girlfriend to team up with his ex.
“He’s not going to know what’s hit him.”
And of course, Shobna is leaving the Street and her role as Sunita early next year, so this new plotline is possibly leading to her departure.
Here’s a reminder of the moment Stella found out about Karl’s affair with Sunita…
