Things are looking up for unlucky in love Eva Price in 2016 after she manages to bag the boss on New Year’s Eve.
Eva finds herself in a clinch with knicker factory boss Aidan Connor as they see in the new year at the Bistro.
And actress Cath Tyldesley has revealed that it was not as romantic as it looks on screen for her and co-star Shayne Ward: “Poor Shayne – Eva wears bright red lipstick and by the time we had finished the kissing scene it was all over his face!”
The New Year’s Eve snog is just the start of a big romance for Eva and Aidan in 2016.
On New Year’s Day Leanne catches Eva trying to sneak hunky Aidan out of the flat and the relationship develops further when Aidan discovers that his dad Johnny is Carla’s dad.
Cath explains: “Eva tells him that she was shocked when she found out Leanne was her half sister but now they are very close and she feels it could be the same for him and Carla. They bond over this shared experience.
“Eva is ready for romance again after what happened with Jason and it looks like she and Aidan could be perfect together.”
It won’t all be plain sailing for the lovebirds though. In January a new client arrives at Underworld with his glamorous wife. It isn’t long before Eva realises that all is not what it seems with the O’Driscolls, and they are hiding a dark secret that could have far reaching consequences for the factory.
