When asked who would win a fight between the ex jailbird and the feisty factory boss, Sally told The Sun: “Abi definitely!

“Carla has got sophistication that Abi hasn’t got, which gives Abi the edge because Abi is an Alley cat!

“Abi has got nothing to lose and Carla has so that is the difference.”

She adds: “If it’s a war of words or to do with making some kind of plan then no, Abi wouldn’t win. But if it was an actual fight then Abi would kill her!”

Peter and Carla originally split when Peter admitted to cheating with Tina McIntyre, and both moved on with other people, but it looks like they are being drawn together again.

However, Carla may have other things on her mind after Corrie boss Iain Maclead revealed that Carla will become a full-blown workaholic in the lead up to the factory’s roof collapse in March.

He said: “She wants to focus on the factory and Aiden’s legacy, That drives Carla into making some mistakes, that will lead to the factory falling in basically!

“She alienates a lot of people. First it will look like an accident, then we’ll start to reveal that it’s not.”
