Johnny urged wife Jenny (Sally Ann Matthews) to consider going to France for a holiday so they could visit Eva Price (Catherine Tyldesley) and their grandchild.
Jenny was left baffled by her husband’s suggestion as she wanted to know why they’d leave when their B&B guest had only just arrived.
Johnny refused to give a definitive answer but it was clear he wanted to spend as much time away from Scott as possible.
Fans have already begun to speculate about how they know each other with one or two convinced Scott is connected to Johnny’s daughter Carla.

Johnny conducted the test himself without Carla knowing – could he mistakenly have used the DNA from his daughter Kate (Faye Brookes)?
Fans are certainly convinced Scott and Johnny are connected by Carla with many suggesting he could be the businesswoman’s real dad.
Taking to Twitter, one fan guessed: “Imagine Scott was Carla’s REAL dad, now THAT would be a twist.”
Another simply noted they were excited about the storyline, writing: “Intriguing… I’m very curious about Johnny’s secret! Looking forward to this story.”
