DESPITE their obvious chemistry, Ken Barlow and Wendy Crozier have been holding back their feelings for one another.
However, the tension becomes too hard to handle next week in Coronation Street and the former flames make a decision.
Will Ken and Wendy rekindle their romance?
The pair make a huge decision next week in Corrie
Their chemistry is palpable
The pair have recently been involved in a play but Ken (portrayed by soap legend William Roache) is finding it hard to keep business separate from his personal matters.
Coming up on ITV, Ken beavers away on the Roxanna script and Brian Packham accuses him of bigging up Wendy’s (Robert Kerr) part simply because he has feelings for her.
Ken vehemently denies that is the case – although it’s clear that Brian has hit a nerve.
Later on, Brian takes Ken aside and warns him that Mary Taylor is on the verge of quitting the play, leaving the latter keen to quash any claims of bias.
This prompts Ken to ask Nigel to work with Wendy on her monologue and she’s disappointed by his apparent snub.
The wedge between Ken and Wendy could grow in later scenes as Nigel tells the Corrie stalwart he would like to ask the social worker out himself.
Ken gives him his blessing but Wendy is confused when she realises the date was his idea.
She eventually gets tired of the games and confronts Ken to get some answers – which leads to him dropping a bombshell.
Wendy calls at No.1 and explains that she was shocked by his declaration and confesses her own feelings, adding she’d like to be his companion.
However, this also helps her make another decision as she claims she’s ready to relinquish her leading role in the play in favour of Mary.
A decade before returning to the cobbles, Wendy was rejected by Ken after she had tried to rekindle their affair.
This caused a lot of trouble in Ken’s marriage to Deirdre Barlow, once again.
Deirdre passed away in 2015 and, despite her death, her daughter Tracy is still not Wendy’s biggest fan although Ken learned to forgive Wendy.
Will the pair rekindle their romance?
Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday on ITV.
