Coronation Street fans think they've worked out for definite who newcomer Scott is - and how he's linked to Carla Connor.

The character arrived earlier this year, and immediately appeared to be focusing his attentions on Carla and her father Johnny Connor.

He and Johnny share a past that is yet to be delved into, other than the fact Scott knew Carla's mother.

Johnny fled to France within days of Scott's arrival at the pub, and he's since avoided returning home.

Since then, Scott has been stepping in to help Carla out, even tackling her recent blackmailers.

Coronation Street fans are convinced Scott has given away his true identity

She was being targeted by Chelsey and Jordan, and on Wednesday it was confirmed he caused their recent attack.

During a chat with Carla's boyfriend Peter Barlow, he made it clear he was the attacker.

Amid theories over his identity, including possible links to Jordan and Chelsey, the key theory is that he could be Carla's real father.
