Michelle Connor is going to turn to admirer Robert Preston in this week’s Coronation Street after she discovered on Friday night that hubby Steve is the secret father of Leanne’s baby.
Michelle was devastated on Friday night to Steve blurted out to a packed Bistro that he and Leanne had a one night stand which resulted in baby Oliver being born.
Heartbroken Michelle punched Leanne in the face before collapsing in tears in the ginnel behind the Rovers.
But hell hath no fury like Michelle Connor scorned and this week viewers will see her demand a divorce from Steve before barricading herself in the Rovers, locking Steve and Liz out on the cobbles.
And as these pictures show Robert is the person Michelle turns to in her hour of need when he turns up at Maria’s flat where Michelle is staying.
The pair bond over shots of tequila and she is soon smiling again. Viewers already know that Robert harbours feelings for Michelle and she also tried to kiss him after Ruairi’s death. Is this the start of something, and has Steve lost her for good?
Simon Gregson said:
"If Steve knew she was turning to Robert for comfort he would be devastated, he really hopes he can win her back."
