Coronation Street: shock new love interest for Kate Connor

You won't be expecting it, teases Faye Brookes


Coronation Street star Faye Brookes has teased a new love interest for her character Kate Connor – and has promised it will shock viewers.


When asked on the red carpet at tonight’s British Soap Awards about the fact her character’s love life has been pretty quiet of late, Brookes revealed there was a big surprise in store on the romantic front…

“Trust me its not quiet any more! We are ready to go for this year! I’m not going to give too much away but there’s definitely something coming on the love life front.

“It’s going to shock people. I don’t think fans will guess who it is and neither is Kate, but I’m really excited and want to embrace it – and hopefully this time it will be for the long haul.”

Kate’s last love interest was crazy Caz Hammond, who ended up being arrested after she stalked Maria Connor who she tried to frame for her murder. 

Whoever this mystery new romance will be, they have to be an improvement on crackers Caz, surely?
