Michelle (Kym Marsh) is to accept a new job on a cruise ship after her marriage to Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) reaches the point of no return.
Unbeknownst to Michelle, Steve is actually trying to pluck up the courage to talk to her following their recent bust-up. But crossed wires leads to Michelle confiding in Maria that she’s thinking of accepting work on a cruise ship as Steve has made it plain he wants nothing more to do with her.
Events will come to a head on Friday 24 June when Steve’s cab office chum Tim signs him up to some dating websites, only for Steve to insist that he only has eyes for Michelle.
But when Steve summons Michelle to Streetcars in the hope that they can bury the hatchet, the drama takes a fresh twist when she spots a series of messages on his phone from dating sites.
