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!
