There's a fresh dose of drama on the Coronation Street cobbles. Less than a year after their May wedding, Michelle Connor and Steve McDonald's marriage will be put to the test when Michelle's first love Will arrives in Weatherfield.

Old flame Will turns up at The Rovers to book Michelle as his wedding planner and she is stunned to realise that her new client is her charming ex-boyfriend.

As the pair start to plan Will's wedding, it's not long before they take a trip down memory lane.

It soon becomes clear that there is unfinished business between the former lovebirds as they spend more and more time together, rekindling their friendship.

Can Michelle and Will avoid temptation or will they risk both their relationships by letting their feelings for each other take over?

Michelle's husband Steve is still in Spain helping out his brother Andy, leaving Michelle to run the pub and manage her own business. Will Steve arrive back in Weatherfield in the nick of time?
