Only recently, it was announced that Alison had been nominated for Best Actress for her role of Carla Connor at the 2019 British Soap Awards.
It comes after Alison’s Corrie character took centre stage in the Underworld Factory roof collapse, suffering a mental breakdown after being blamed for the tragedy.
In dark scenes the Underworld factory collapsed after being tampered by a mystery assailant, who will soon be revealed as Corrie’s major new villain in a special episode later this summer.
Speaking about the storyline, Alison recently explained: ‘It’s just too much, she sees what has happened and goes into meltdown. It is the final thing for her, the straw that finally breaks the camel’s back after everything she has gone through.
Dark: In explosive Corrie scenes, the roof of Underworld collapsed killing off one character, with Carla blamed for the tragedy after she admitted to knowing the roof was unsafe
‘More people are going to suffer and she believes it is because of her actions, everything has come tumbling down again and the worst thing ever has happened. She totally believes she is responsible for the accident because she didn’t get the roof fixed.’
Speaking about Carla’s breakdown, Alison added: ‘It is the breaking point, and she has a complete breakdown, it is cumulative of all the life trauma that has happened to her.
‘She is that strong person who has carried on for too long and not asked for help or dealt with anything properly; her upbringing, finding her father, the rape, losing the baby, the disastrous relationships, the death of Aidan. She is at snapping point.’
Coronation Street continues on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV.
