Corrie Actor Talks About Kevin’s Affair

Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh.

Corrie fans, did you manage to keep your food in your stomach when Kevin Webster and Sally Dobbs were slobbering all over each other? It’s one of the most questionable storylines I’ve ever seen Coronation Street attempt. I’ve tried – but I’m just not buying it at all. Molly’s still practically a newly-wed! What’s going on?

Coronation street star Michael Le Vell has been talking about the secret romance between Kevin and his employee’s wife Molly.

He says it’s "uncontrollable for both parties". The 44-year-old, who has played Kevin Webster since 1983, said the affair isn’t just lust. Yeah, it’s desperation on the part of the writers. Just who are they trying to kid? Anyway, he said: "It’s one of those things where Kevin really tries his hardest not to get involved. Obviously his hardest ain’t good enough because he does succumb in the end."

I really feel for Michael Le Vell trying to sell this one – I get the feeling he’s giving an Oscar-winning performance. He added: "But I don’t think it is just lust. I think he really does have strong feelings for her. Obviously it’s a shock to both characters to find themselves in this situation, but hey ho, You live with it, don’t you?" Well after Kevin and Molly, I expect Jason Grimshaw and Corrie barmaid Betty Turpin to get it on – I mean, it’s just as believable a scenario… in cloud cuckoo-land!

If you’ve got an opinion about this latest Coronation Street storyline, let us all know by selecting the ‘add a comment’ button. Are Molly and Kevin the next Liam and Carla?

That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for the result of the caption competition plus more soap news and gossip. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.

    Clive – I can only assume that you are a man in his 40\’s that dreams of situation such as this happening in their own life.The reason I say this is because it is an unbelieveable storyline that has come from nowhere, even I can see that and I don\’t watch the soap regularly. Plus, I know Kevin is a loveable character as the soppy, ever-obeying husband and father but c\’mon…Kevin and Molly???I do however agree that it is a "good laugh", I laugh at how stupid the storyline is, even Michael Le Vell has trouble believing it and he is meant to be promoting the soap / storyline…

    No name – how can you say ever-obeying husband? This isn\’t the first affair Kevin has had but then being married to super-snob Sally would drive any guy to cheat!

    well it looks like the men in coronation street have had a affair with many many woman who live in the street and soon will run out of suitable partners so i wonder will it be jason or david who will be the first to have a affair with their own mother i think kevin and molly is the last straw for anyone who watches and expects them to believe for one second that those two people would do such a thing working and living doors away from one another. ps i think it will be david

    The Mitchell/Dawn romp in EE is even more unbelievable and crass than poor old kevin and Molly IMHO.What woman in her right mind would want to be slobbered over by the whisky-sodden killer Phil Mitchell?. At least kevin looks reasoanbly clean and decent, unlike Mitchell who looks as if he has completely gone to seed.But both stories are not very true to life, except we know that Dawn is a gold-digger – remember the way she condoned Jace\’s protection racket violence just so they could have a "nice home" together?..As regards David Platt, how about him having an affair with Blanche 🙂

    I have been an avid watcher of Coronation Street for 30 plus years, but the current "Love Fest" is just plain stupid!!!! Kevin and Mollie………!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Newly wed and she is looking at Kevin??? Kevin married twice to the same wee lady and looks at Mollie…? Kinda believable, but for her to say yes!!!!!???? This is the first time I have every switched Corrie off, and it will stay off until the writers can come up with something better…….if they are have trouble I could help them out, at a fee of course!!

    Kevin and Mollie-HEEEELLLOOOO???? Dawn and Phil-HEEEELLLOOOO????——–"Avin" a laugh me thinks!!!!! Lets make it more realistic–How about Blanche and David Platt???? and maybe Dot and Rickaaay????What a basket of bilge we\’re being dripfed!!!!
