Michelle Collins last chance

Michelle Collins last chance. Coronation Street's Stella Price will reportedly be left in a critical condition after she is knocked down by a drunk Carla Connor.

The plot will apparently be used by bosses to decide if the ITV soap will keep Michelle Collins on in the role of the new Rovers Return manager. The Sun claims that viewing figures have fallen since the former EastEnders star, whose fake northern accent has been criticised by some viewers, arrived on the Street.

If the scenes alongside actresses Jane Danson and Alison King do not win over viewers, the paper suggests that Collins faces the axe in a Christmas plot. "This storyline is Michelle's last chance to win viewers over," a source said. "She will be mown down by Carla Connor, who drunkenly drives her car into Barlow's Bookies as a plea for help with her booze battle.

"Stella will be rushed to hospital and Leanne will realise she wants her mum to live and for them to have a relationship. If that doesn't get the figures up, there is no hope for her and they will kill her off at Christmas."
