Coronation Street: Leon Ockenden to play Michelle’s old flame Will – is her marriage to Steve at risk?

The Mr Selfridge star will debut on Corrie this April


Michelle Connor’s marriage to Steve McDonald will be put to the test this spring when her first love Will shows up in Weatherfield.


Mr Selfridge actor Leon Ockenden is to play Michelle’s old flame and will be seen booking her services as his wedding planner. But it isn’t long before the pair are taking a trip down memory lane…

As Corrie fans know, Michelle’s husband Steve is currently in Spain helping out his brother Andy. But little does Steve know that Michelle is getting close to her ex-love as Will’s nuptials draw near.


A spokesperson said today: “Can Michelle and Will avoid temptation or will they risk both their relationships by letting their feelings for each other take over? Will Steve arrive back in Weatherfield in the nick of time?”

Ockenden – who also featured in BBC1’s schools drama Waterloo Road – started filming with Coronation Street co-star Kym Marsh this week, with his debut scenes set to be broadcast in April.
