Robert and Michelle’s fledgling relationship will come under pressure as part of a big summer storyline on Coronation Street.
Michelle has recently turned to Robert following the breakdown of her marriage to Steve – but it won’t be long before the couple are sailing into stormy waters.
Producer Kate Oates said today of the dark drama ahead: “We’ve got some great stuff coming up for these two – someone from Robert’s past comes back, which will result in them facing their first problem together. So that’ll be a test of how strong their partnership is.”
The show boss also revealed that Leon Ockenden would be also be making a return as Michelle’s former boyfriend Will, who – as fans know – she almost slept with back in 2016:
“At the same time we also have Michelle’s ex, Will, back on the scene. She almost cheated on Steve with him in the past and he’s in the mix too.”
Oates’s comments come following Kym Marsh’s comments to RadioTimes.com in which she teased her upcoming storyline: “We are seeing a more feisty side to Michelle. And there is a very dramatic summer ahead – it’s certainly not going to be all easy going for her and Robert.”
