Iain previously revealed that on New Year’s Eve, Adam will be faced with Damon’s return after trying to have him killed by rival gangsters.
Iain said Damon “has been somewhere away from Coronation Street plotting his revenge”.
He added: “It arrives as a fairly blunt force on, as I say, the first episode in the new year if I'm remembering correctly, and then the story then becomes a kind of love triangle where Damon, we also imagined, has been spending his intervening months pining for Sarah.
“Like can he have his revenge and also have Sarah? The answer might well be no, so which one is he going to choose? It's a brilliant, exciting, high octane story.
“As it shakes down, Damon's revenge may start to take a backseat to his feelings for Sarah.”
And the story brings back another gangster – Damon’s brother Harvey.
Iain added: “But just in case you thought that that was all going to be smooth running from now or plain sailing from there, Adam can't stand the idea that this guy's back and has maybe got designs on Sarah, who at this point is still his wife although they are going through a divorce, and he decides in his mind that to protect Sarah, he might want rid of Damon.
“So as Damon’s calming down, Adam’s going in the other direction and his plans to rid himself of Damon will see him pay a little visit to Damien's half brother Harvey, because he's no fan of Damon’s either, and they might form this kind of unholy alliance."
Coronation Street airs on ITV1 and is available on ITVX.
