Coronation Street's Ryan Connor lashes out at Carla in steroid story

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has aired frightening scenes as rage-filled Ryan Connor threatened Carla.

Carla has stood by Ryan throughout his recovery from the acid attack and even offered him a place to live, but has no idea about his latest struggles.

Ryan has started to post on an adult video site to earn money, but has resorted to abusing steroids once again because he was ashamed by insults about his physique.

In Friday's (August 25) episode, Ryan received an offer of £100 for private photos. He agreed to accept the cash and then carefully arranged the photos to hide his scars.

However, before long, Ryan saw some comments online making awful remarks about his scars. Carla encouraged him to ignore any such comments, but he snapped in a 'roid rage incident.

Ryan accused Carla of thinking he's "a freak" and snarled that "the factory lot" made him sick, as he threateningly got in Carla's face.

Peter Barlow arrived home just in time to stop something worse from occurring. He pinned Ryan against the wall, ordering him to calm down and get out.

After Ryan made a hasty exit, Peter said he'd had enough and started packing Ryan's things to kick him out. Carla actually tried to defend Ryan, insisting to Peter that it had just been a build-up of stress.

Ryan later returned, begging for forgiveness for what he'd done and apologising profusely for taking out his anger on Carla after all she'd done for him.

Carla was instantly forgiving, and while Peter had reservations, he agreed that Ryan could stay so long as he never threatened Carla again.

Will Ryan open up about what he's going through?

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
