We anticipated a fight to break out when it was revealed that Cait Fitton was coming back to Coronation Street just months after leaving to resume her role as Lauren Bolton.
And in a shocking turn of events in the upcoming weeks, she is likely to act in a more unsettling manner as she advances on a helpless Roy Cropper (David Neilson).
Lauren was introduced as a part of the extreme gang plot line that saw Max Turner (Paddy Bever) being groomed by the fascist gang into a life of crime.
She was the daughter of a gang member and quickly became Max’s lover. Through her cunning actions, she made it simpler for Max to fall under the gang’s sway.
Lauren moved home with her mother in Cornwall when the police detained members of the group after a bomb was planted in the Speed Daal van and Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) was stabbed.
Since her return, we’ve learned that despite Max moving on with new girlfriend Sabrina (Luana Santos), she still harbours affections for him.
Additionally, she keeps in touch with her imprisoned father Reece (Scott Anson). Although Cait Fitton told us it’s understandable that Reece’s bad mentality has infected his daughter, it’s debatable to what extent she’s still under his sway.
She claimed, “I believe she has inherited her father’s beliefs and opinions, and she has never been able to make her own choices, have her own decisions, or make her own ideas of things.” I believe that parents have such a significant impact on a child’s life that if hate is all around you, how can you possibly know any other way?
She is undoubtedly a disturbed young woman, but Weatherfield has residents who are willing to help her and give her another shot. Shona Platt (Julia Goulding) is one of them.
Working at Roy’s Rolls, Max’s stepmother convinces her boss Roy to give Lauren a trial employment at the café the next week.
Lauren is anxious but thankful for the opportunity, but her first day is ruined when Max texts to say he won’t have time to stop by and support her as promised.
She is devastated to learn that he is actually spending time with Sabrina, and she jealously observes as the two of them travel home.
Cait Fitton informed us that “she is completely heartbroken.” Max was her final option. Her entire world has suddenly crumbled since she returned, and I believe what she is feeling is very relevant. The problem is that when stress levels rise, we automatically erupt and vent our frustrations on various people.
Shona is encouraging and later informs Lauren that Roy has agreed to make the job permanent despite this setback and a few missteps because Lauren’s focus is genuinely not on her work.
Lauren, who is unstable, isn’t used to receiving kindness, so could she mistake Roy’s generosity? When she makes a move on him, things undoubtedly change.
How will the adamantly moral Roy respond to this predicament?
