Johnny Connor is the father of Carla, Aidan and Kate Connor. In August 2015, Aidan stole £100,000 and used the money to buy a share in Carla's factory Underworld. Johnny tracked his son down during the following month and demanded his money back as he was penniless due to his ex-girlfriend clearing him out.
In December, Johnny was sent a visiting order from Carla's brother, Rob Donovan from Highfield Prison. Johnny told Nick Tilsley about the letter but was unsure about telling Carla. However she ended up noticing the letter and asked Johnny what it was about. Johnny told Carla that Rob had been in contact, and she urged Johnny to go and find out what he wanted. Johnny duly visited Rob, and he was told that he was Carla's dad. Rob knew this as his mother Sharon once told him that she slept with Johnny, and that Carla was born nine months later. Rob blackmailed Johnny, saying that he would give him a week to pay £10,000, or he would send out a visiting order to Carla.
In May 2016, Johnny and his employee Jenny Bradley went to visit Blackpool so Jenny could properly lay her long deceased father Alan to rest. At the same time Tim Metcalfe and Kevin Webster were taking Jack Webster for a visit to the resort but while the trio were eating in the Seashore Snack Bar, Jack ran away. He was spotted by Jenny running past her towards an oncoming tram. Jenny sprinted after the boy and snatched him before her could be run over. Johnny rushed to see if Jenny was okay, her only injury was a twisted ankle.
Later that month Johnny discovered that Tracy Barlow knew about Carla's one-night stand with Robert Preston and warned her not to ruin Carla's wedding. On the big day itself, Johnny locked Tracy in cupboard in the factory, hoping to stall her long enough so Carla could marry Nick.
- As stated by Michelle Connor in Episode 8804 (28th December 2015), Johnny is the second cousin of her father Barry Connor.
