Ever since soap fans discovered Pat Phelan was returning to Weatherfield to seek revenge and kill off a few more characters (if he can), speculation has been rife about his proposed victims.
And Michelle’s name just keeps coming up, with some reports saying she will be murdered on her wedding day!
In her column for OK! magazine, Kym said: “My lips are sealed over whether Michelle Connor will end up dead on her wedding day.
“There were rumours circulating last week that my character gets shot during her nuptials; I can tell you that I have been filming some very dramatic scenes lately.”
Kym also revealed how she likes to unwind after a tough day’s filming, adding: “It’s been really full on at Corrie, so to shake off the stress after a day of intense filming I’ll have a cuppa and then drive home with the tunes up loud.”

The former Hear’Say star, who made her name on the 2001 series of Popstars, spoke of the close relationship she has with Alison King (who plays Carla Connor).
She joked: “A lot of people say Ali and I are morphing into each other as we get older […]. We wear similar clothes and we share make-up – and chairs! – at work.”
Kym also defended Kate Oates’ ‘dark’ storylines, saying: “I was sad to hear that Corrie’s producer Kate Oates is leaving the show after two years.
“I’ve done my most challenging work and I’ve been given some amazing opportunities and I’ve really enjoyed working with her as captain – I’m going to miss her.”
Kym has had her own drama in her personal life, too, as she’s recently split up from long-term boyfriend Matt Baker.
She was previously married to former EastEnders star Jack Ryder and then Hollyoaks’ Jamie Lomas, with whom she has a daughter.
