Trusting Stella gave her friend Sunita a job behind the bar at the Rovers and then a roof over her head when she later split up with Dev.
Little did she know that Sunita was seducing her partner Karl behind her back, however, as the pair continued their affair Karl appeared to want out, but Sunita 's charms proved too powerful.
When the cheats enjoyed a stolen romp, after hours at the Rovers, as Stella took daughters Leanne and Eva on a girls' night out, it was only a matter of time before they were caught in a compromising position.
Michelle Collins, who plays Stella, said: "I'm not sure there can be a future between them but then again, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton did get back together about 7.000 times so watch this space."
