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. 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?

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!”
