Does he really want to leave?

| Updated:

Ken Barlow (William Roache) and Claudia Colby (Rula Lenska) have been planning to move to Stillwaters retirement village, leaving Coronation Street behind.

But could Ken be having second thoughts as the day of the big move arrives next week?

The soap stalwart left fans devastated when he appeared to announce his departure from the show during the 10,000th episode of the ITV soap.

However, although Ken and Claudia are set to leave the cobbles, viewers will still be able to follow their journey as they embark on a new chapter of their lives.

Despite Ken deciding to move away, it appears as if he may have begun to have second thoughts about leaving his home.

When Ken reveals that he and Claudia will be moving to Stillwaters in just a few days’ time, Tracy is excited at the prospect of moving into the house and begins planning a makeover for the property.

Meanwhile Peter is more concerned about where he and Simon are going to live.

Later in the week, Ken seems to be having doubts when he decide to talk to Steve and Tracy about delaying selling the house to them.

However, sensing how excited they are, Ken doesn’t say anything as he can’t bring himself to let them down.

Seeing her dad so down, Tracy is concerned, but it’s not long before the family are helping him with the last of his things.

As he picks up Deirdre’s peanut bowls, Ken takes one last wistful look around his living room and leaves.

When Ken and Claudia arrive at Stillwaters they are immediately made to feel welcome by fellow resident, Charles Lake.

And reports have confirmed there’ll be another familiar face living at the retirement complex with him: Norris Cole!

Will Norris help Ken settle in or will he still have his doubts about the move? Could we see Ken back on the cobbles where he belongs before too soon?
