It’s a strange state of affairs when real life has more incredible plotlines than those served up in soapland, but Michael Le Vell’s return to Coronation Street has proven to be full of behind-the-scenes drama.

Le Vell’s character - mechanic Kevin Webster - is back in town tonight having not been seen on screen since February 2013. But it looks like this will be a fleeting reappearance: after admitting to using cocaine, Le Vell is to “take a break” to get help despite having only just resumed filming after being cleared of sex abuse charges. So neither us – nor Sally, for that matter – should get too used to having Kevin around again.

About this programme

Kevin leaves in a huff when Tim urges him not to give Maddie's name to the police. Is he jealous of Sally's new partner? Kal admits to Leanne he is attracted to her, while Tina apologises to Peter for not being understanding and agrees to wait as long as it takes. Maria and Marcus come face to face in the pub and she launches a stinging attack on him and Todd.
