Michelle’s new night­mare! Corrie

Trou­ble brews when Michelle pre­tends she and Robert have split up, says Kym Marsh...

Soaplife - - Hot This Issue -

Why would Michelle Con­nor make out that she and hunky chef Robert Pre­ston are no longer an item? To try and find out who’s wag­ing a vendetta against them – that’s why. ‘It’s Robert’s idea. He’s ab­so­lutely cer­tain it’s not Rich who’s got it in for them and he’s wor­ried about Michelle’s safety,’ ac­tress Kym Marsh tells Soaplife. ‘Robert sug­gests that, as the per­pe­tra­tor is ob­vi­ously out to get him, Michelle will be safe if she makes out they’ve split up.’ Sadly, he couldn’t be more wrong…

Does Michelle have any idea that her old flame, Will Chat­ter­ton, is be­hind all this?

None. He’s not even on her radar and she hasn’t seen any weird­ness in him up till now. He’s with Maria Con­nor and ev­ery­thing, as far as Michelle is aware, seems to be go­ing well be­tween them. So it doesn’t re­ally reg­is­ter with her at all. She treats him as an old friend and she’s grate­ful he seems kind and sup­port­ive, and that he’s there for her.

How will she re­act if – and when – she finds out what Will is re­ally like?

Even­tu­ally some­thing will hap­pen, which is go­ing to ter­rify her to her very core!

How will she feel to dis­cover he’s so twisted, dark and schem­ing?

Ob­vi­ously, she’ll be dev­as­tated be­cause he’s one of her old­est friends, and to think that some­body who’s a friend of hers could do some­thing like that?! Well, she’s re­ally creeped out and hor­ri­fied. It’s very soon af­ter the fake split with Robert that Michelle re­alises some­thing sin­is­ter is go­ing on with Will. It’s ter­ri­fy­ing for her as she feels so vul­ner­a­ble and alone at the mo­ment.

Do things turn ugly with Will?

Ba­si­cally, he dis­cov­ers she’s not been 100 per cent hon­est about things with him. But then Michelle makes a dis­cov­ery of her own, which im­pli­cates Will mas­sively and she sud­denly has this ‘Aaargh!’ mo­ment.

Will she be in dan­ger?

Po­ten­tially, yes. It’s very dra­matic and she’s des­per­ate for help. Put it this way, I was shat­tered af­ter we filmed those scenes.

Michelle doesn’t half have bad taste in men!

I don’t think it’s that so much – she’s just a ro­man­tic. The ro­mance with Will hap­pened when they were teenagers. She hasn’t had a re­la­tion­ship with him since then, but he’s ob­vi­ously got some very strange emo­tions, deep down. Steve was just an id­iot, but he was her id­iot and she loved him for that.

How about Robert?

She knows now Robert’s not squeaky clean, but his heart’s al­ways been in the right place. Ev­ery­thing Robert’s done has been to try and im­prove Michelle’s life, and to pro­tect her. He’s not very good at pro­tect­ing her, though, when you ex­am­ine his track record! He looks like Su­per­man, but he’s not. He’s Clark Kent.
