Coronation Street viewers were recently introduced to newcomer Scott. And it’s clear he and Johnny have a past…
Recently, Jenny told husband Johnny that they had someone staying in the B&B for a few weeks. But Johnny immediately panicked hearing it was Scott Emberton.
Johnny desperately tried to dodge him, even arranging for him and Jenny to go visit Eva and granddaughter Susie in France for the duration of Scott’s stay. But their meeting was inevitable.
In Monday’s episode (April 20) the two came face to face and Scott immediately recognised Johnny.
As the pair shook hands, Scott asked Johnny how long it had been, leading Jenny to realise the two know each other.
In Wednesday’s episode (April 22) the pair stood in the pub’s garden and Johnny told Scott he was going abroad.
After their encounter, Johnny and Jenny headed to the airport. As he prepared to leave, Scott asked Johnny if he was going because of him.
However, when Johnny claimed they were just going to see his granddaughter, Scott replied saying: “Good, ’cause there’s no hard feelings on my part. Okay? The past is in the past.”
Viewers have been left wondering what Johnny and Scott’s connection could be and have come up with different theories.
Johnny had an affair with Scott’s wife
Fans of the show know Johnny is no stranger to affairs.
He previously cheated on late wife Louisa with Carla’s mum, Sharon. In 2018, he had an affair with Liz McDonald behind Jenny’s back.
Could he have been involved in a love triangle with Scott?

Scott is Carla’s dad?
One theory viewers had is that Scott is Carla’s biological dad and not Johnny.
With Carla being Johnny’s only child left on the cobbles, it would explain why he wants Scott gone.
One wrote: “Imagine Scott was Carla’s REAL dad, now THAT would be a twist.”
A second said: “Intrigued about Johnny’s past.”
A third added: “Intriguing… I’m very curious about Johnny’s secret! Looking forward to this story.”
Johnny did take a DNA test but that could have been flawed…
Scott is a secret relation to Johnny
Could Scott be a secret Connor? Some have predicted he could even be a long-lost son of Johnny. Err…
I wonder is Scott Johnny's long lost son? #Corrie

What do we know about Johnny’s past?
Before his time on the cobbles, Johnny was married to a woman named Louisa, who is the mother of his kids Kate and Aidan Connor.
However Johnny had an affair with a woman named Sharon in 1974. Their affair resulted in Sharon falling pregnant with her daughter, Carla.
Eventually Louisa found out the truth. Because of what she learnt, she frantically ran into the road without looking and was run over.
She died as a result of her injuries.
But where does Scott fit into Johnny’s past?
Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
