As The Good Ship Murder sets sail with its first episode tonight (Friday 13th October), viewers will get to meet Shayne Ward's detective-turned-singer Jack and his new cruise crew colleague, Catherine Tyldesley as First Officer Kate.


In an exclusive teaser for tonight's premiere, readers can see Jack meeting the head of entertainment, Bev (Claire Sweeney).

It doesn't take Bev long to lightly scold him for his scruffy suit, but Jack is quickly distracted by the arrival of Kate.

Could there be romance at sea when the pair meet?

The Good Ship Murder follows the former Corrie trio's respective characters after a passenger on the cruise is murdered.
