Coronation Street’s Norris Cole will find it difficult to keep his mouth shut when he discovers that Graeme and Xin’s wedding is a sham.
The gossiping newsagent – played by Malcolm Hebden – is set to find out that the seemingly loved up pair are only getting married so Xin can stay in the UK and is shocked to find out that Graeme’s actual girlfriend Tina McIntyre is in on the secret.
Michelle told BANG Showbiz: “Norris finds out about it being a big sham so Tina has to get to the church before Norris opens his mouth. You know what he’s like – he just loves a bit of gossip and drama!
“She wasn’t even supposed to be at the wedding so she has to pretend she’s there to save face and wish them well. It’s her boyfriend and her best friend so she has to make out she’s there to support them both.”
However, it could end up being Tina who puts a halt to the nuptials, as the brunette bombshell will find it increasingly difficult having to see her boyfriend Graeme (Craig Gazey) and her best friend pretend to be a happy couple.
Speaking at last night’s (16.03.11) Royal Television Society Awards at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, Michelle added: “Things aren’t going well for Tina in the run-up to the wedding. She’s getting really jealous of Xin. She loves Graeme so much and although the wedding is a massive scam, she’s not enjoying another girl moving in on her man.
“She just wants it to all be over and done with so they can get married, get the visa for Xin and that’s the end of it.
“We’ll have to wait and see whether her jealousy gets too much and she stops the wedding altogether. But with it being Corrie there’s bound to be plenty of drama.”
