CORRIE factory boss Carla Connor will try to kill herself - days after being raped by fiance Frank Foster.

All-time low ... Cara Connor
Depressed Carla, played by Alison King, downs a bottle of sleeping pills with red wine.

Frank (Andrew Lancel) is arrested for the vicious attack that left her bruised and bloodied - but Carla cannot come to terms with her horrific ordeal.

When close pal Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) visits her, teary Carla declares her love for him and begs him to leave his wife Leanne again.

But he knocks her back - completing her humiliation and sparking the overdose.

A source said: "Carla is at rock bottom. She prides herself on being invincible and feels utterly broken by Frank's actions.

"Peter is the only friend she has left and she's never felt rejection like it. She wants to end it all."

After Peter returns to Leanne, Carla rings him on his mobile as she drifts towards unconsciousness.

She tells him: "I'm just ringing to say goodbye.

"I hope you have a happy life and please don't blame yourself. It's all Frank's fault."

Before Peter can answer he hears a crash and the line goes dead. Fearing the worst, he calls for an ambulance before racing to Underworld chief Carla's flat and finding her unconscious on the floor.

He looks to have arrived too late to save her as he cradles her seemingly lifeless body in his arms.

With tears streaming down his face and his voice shaking with emotion, Peter begs: "Carla, I'm so sorry. Please don't die!"

The ambulance arrives and whisks Carla away to hospital.

But Peter blames himself for not seeing the signs of how depressed she had become - and for not warning anyone that she was in need of professional help.

The harrowing scenes will be screened on ITV1 in September.

Coronation Street has been criticised for being too dark in recent weeks. Carla's rape and suicide attempt come after innocent Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine) is is arrested for three murders committed by her fugitive husband.

She is then threatened by drug dealers in jail.

Last night soap insiders insisted Corrie bosses are being careful to avoid sensationalising Carla's suicide attempt.

One source told TV Biz: "Both the scriptwriters and the actors involved are working closely with the relevant charities and support groups to make sure this is handled as sensitively and as realistically as possible."
