The nation’s hearts collectively broke last year when it was revealed Steve McDonald had got Leanne Battersby pregnant. After all, it surely meant the end for Steve and his wife Michelle Connor. Sure enough, when Michelle found out the truth, she ditched Steve and moved on with Robert Preston. But is a reunion likely for the McDonalds? Fans are certainly desperate for that to be the case.
But according to Kym Marsh, it’s highly unlikely. Speaking to The Sun Online, she revealed: “I think he would have to do something pretty amazing [to win her back]. He would have to save her life or something.”
Michelle’s current relationship with Robert has hit the rocks after Chesney Brown’s stabbing on Monday. He was caught in the crossfire in an argument between Robert and his former friend-turned-drug-dealer, Rich. Michelle told her lover in no uncertain terms if he helped Rich, their relationship was over. Despite her threat, we later saw Robert call Rich and agree to do what he said – just this once. Does that spell the end for his relationship with Michelle?
