Coronation Street are lining up Kevin Webster and Erica Hoyland to have a passionate affair.
Kevin is currently living with Anna Windass and Erica is shacked up with Dev Alahan, but the pair’s friendship with each other is growing and is set to spill over into something more.
Erica and Kevin first appeared on each other’s radar when he came into the shop and, as a result of his ongoing money worries, struggled to pay for his goods.
Dev told Kev he could just have the shopping (that was unusually generous of him!), but ungrateful Kevin stormed off insisting he’s wasn’t a charity case.
A concerned Erica followed him and reached out to see if he was okay. And Kevin later repaid her kindness by giving her a free valet on her car.
A bag of shopping, some kind words AND a free car clean? Less than that has definitely led to more in the soap’s history! It certainly hinted that these two would get together.
And now they’ve been spotted filming together at a hotel, but is their liaison set to be a one-off night of passion or a more long-term affair?
Kevin’s been struggling with Anna ever since her injuries in the car fire caused by David Platt.
She’s avoiding any form of intimacy with him and he’s feeling rejected, which is what pushes him towards spending more time with Erica.
For her part, Erica is feeling neglected by Dev, who takes her for granted and treats her more like an employee than a partner.
In a recent chat with Inside Soap, show boss Kate Oates said:
“Dev is going to take Erica for granted, and that will be his major problem.
“I don’t think Erica is used to being taken for granted, and she may react badly – so watch out, Dev! This woman was Kim Tate!”
Does bad reaction mean straying into the arms of another?
Are Erica and Kevin a match made in heaven or are they headed for disaster?
We don’t want to see Anna get hurt, that’s for sure, but would she be better off without Kevin if he’s willing to cheat on her to get some action?
